HANS Andersen has offered his thanks to Poole team-mate Daniel Davidsson and fellow GP rider Emil Sayfutdinov after finishing third in the British SGP at Cardiff.

Andersen, who passed Greg Hancock in the final to win a place on the podium, had to borrow a van off Davidsson - and then a bike off Sayfutdinov.

The Dane said: "On Wednesday night my van was damaged in a crash and I would like to thank Daniel for stepping in and lending me his for Cardiff.

"I really appreciated the gesture and having borrowed some equipment to even get to Cardiff, I finished the night borrowing a bike from Emil after my Poole bike seized in my final qualifying ride.

"I only had one spare with me but Emil stepped forward in the semi-final to offer me his bike.

"I didn't have a great deal of time to make any changes to it to suit me, but it was a fantastic gesture and I am delighted to have got third place in the end."
