‘If I don’t win the championship, it’s kind of a plaster on the wound to win those two big events,’ he continued.
‘I have proved this year I belong in the GP. Just to get a medal would be a big achievement for my first year, and also considering the injuries I have had to deal with.
‘I am very, very happy after this meeting how the standings look. I go to Torun very positive and I’ll do my best. We’ll see what happens.’
Madsen has endured injuries to his back and ankle this season, and wants to finish with at least a medal.
