Pitch: This is the compelling story of Danish speedway rise onto the International stage and it’s star Ole Olsen. His many international triumphs and his macho-image made him Denmark’s darling and put speedway firmly in the nations mind. The success paved the way for a new, golden generation of Danish speedway drivers led by Hans Nielsen and Erik Gundersen. The fall of the kings is an homage to these three sports personalities and to speedway.
