Anders Thomsen

  • Name Anders Thomsen
  • Date of Birth 1/1/94
  • Age 21
  • Hometown Odense, Denmark

  • Was signed midway through last season and showed enough promise to be Tigers first signing for 2014. He made his debut at Somerset scoring paid 5 including a heat win and at times showed some promising form. He wasn’t always mounted on good machinery though which meant his scoring suffered badly but he showed in the final league match against Plymouth that he could be a big scorer this year, only dropping one point to Matthew Wethers , despite riding at no 3. He then won the Fritte Cup in his native Denmark which is for U23 riders. Unfortunately he finished the season in mid -October with a broken ankle after a training accident.

    Like Dimitri Berge, he is a former World Champion, having won the 80cc title in 2010 ahead of riders such as Cameron Heeps, Brady Kurtz and Patrick Lykke Nielsen.

    He also won the Faaberg Midtfyn (a local authority) “This years talent award” in 2010 !!

    He will ride for Fjelsted in the Danish Superleague in 2014
