Polish star Tomasz Gollob admits he has been ordered to take a break from racing this week by doctors as he is still feeling the effects of his fall at Hammarby on May 22.
Gollob was knocked out in a crash during the Stockholm club’s 59-31 drubbing at home to Piraterna and also fell in the FIM Dansk Metal Danish SGP in Copenhagen on June 9.
"I want to return to full fitness and compete on the track at 100 percent. I hope that this break will return me to optimal form."

The 41-year-old has struggled badly for consistency ever since, despite finishing fourth in the FIM Gorzow SGP of Poland on Saturday.
Gollob pulled out of Hammarby’s trip to Vetlanda on Tuesday night and will also sit out their rearranged home meeting against Indianerna on Wednesday.
The eight-time Polish champion has also withdrawn from the Polish Championship semi-final at Rawicz on Thursday. This means neither Gollob or defending champion Jaroslaw Hampel, who is recovering from a broken leg, will claim the prize this term.
Speaking on his official website, Gollob said: “All the time I feel the effects of the falls in Sweden and Copenhagen.
“My doctor told me to take a break and have some rehabilitation before the next part of the season.
“I want to return to full fitness and compete on the track at 100 percent. I hope that this break will return me to optimal form.”
