Poland and Sweden book Speedway World Cup Final places

Jul 272016

Two of speedway’s biggest superpowers have booked their place in the Monster Energy Speedway World Cup Final this weekend after two awesome opening events.

Event One took place in Vojens, Denmark and a young Poland side shocked home favourites Denmark to qualify straight through to Saturday’s Final, while reigning champions Sweden overcame a determined Australia team in Event Two to give them the chance to retain their crown.

Those two will join Great Britain in the Final in Manchester, UK, with the final team to qualify to be decided on Friday when Denmark, Russia, Australia and USA go bar-to-bar in the cut-throat Race-Off.

“I didn’t really perform the way I wanted to and I need to do a little bit better, but Doyley was really good and it was great for the young guys to get a taste for it all as well.

 

“All in all, we survived and it’s on to Manchester. Most of the boys have ridden at the track there, so we’ll practice on Friday and then it’s wide open so we’ll see how we go. We’ve got to step it up a little bit.”

 

Team USA was always going to be battling for a place in the Race-Off and they delivered yet again, inspired by team captain and current Speedway GP leader Greg Hancock.

‘Grin’s’ record in the Speedway World Cup is simply unbelievable and that didn’t change here. He scored 17 of USA’s 22 points and knows they have achieved their goal.

 

“We came here and did the job we set out to do, getting to the Race-Off was our most achievable goal, being realistic, and we did that. It was a really tough fight, we knew it was going to be hard but I didn't think it would be as close as it was.

 

“We’ve got to make some vast improvements for Manchester, we’re there and we’re learning all the time but we’ve being say that for four or five years now. It’s time to step it up and show these guys that we really want to be a player in the very near future.”
