POLAND CONQUER THE WORLD IN SWC THRILLER

Jul 092017

The #MonsterEnergySWC reached an awesome climax in Leszno, Poland with Patryk Dudek leading the home nation to victory in front of 17,000 super-charged fans.

The young Polish team were expected to retain their title but they did it in style and sent thousands of supporters into raptures by proving that they are truly the best Speedway nation in the world.

Up against Great Britain, Sweden and Russia, Poland stamped an early marker by racing into the lead straight away and inspired by their home fans, they were never going to let it go.

“I feel great, it is my third time riding in the World Cup and my third gold medal, it was an amazing night. The atmosphere was incredible, it was different for us than the other times because we are at home with our fans and it was special.

 

’17,000 people in the house, it was great power for us and inspiration for the whole team. The more people in the stadium the better for us and it was amazing. It was cool to ride with my friends, we are always in good contact and we have been together this week – it has been good.

 

“We know that when we race against each other it stays on the track but when we get together for the national team we all want the same thing and we are good friends. It’s just a great feeling to win for all the Polish fans again, thank you to them for the support and I’m happy we brought the trophy for them. Amazing.”
