Winning a world championship requires a lot of different things; talent, dedication, hard work, luck and perhaps mostly, desire.
Well there is nobody who married those ingredients together better than the new Speedway World Champion Jason Doyle, the man who battled on with a broken foot and finally clinched his first world title in front of his home fans at the final round of the season in Melbourne, Australia.
Doyle held a handy lead over rookie Patryk Dudek going into the last round and only a miracle would see him let the gold slip, but he made no mistake and blew the roof off the Etihad Stadium by taking victory on the night too. Talk about doing it in style…
Doyle’s rise from journeyman league racer to the best in the world has been nothing short of incredible but he was pushed all the way by Dudek, who enjoyed the best rookie season in recent history to wrap up second overall.
