GOLLOB'S MEDAL QUEST
Thursday 20th September 2012, 11:27
Tomasz Gollob’s manager Thomas Gaszynski says the Pole won’t give up hope of a rostrum finish “as long as it’s still mathematically do-able”.
The 41-year-old goes into the FIM Dansk Metal Nordic SGP in Vojens on Saturday poised fourth in the World Championship standings on 114 points – nine behind Danish star Nicki Pedersen in third.
Despite what has been an extremely chequered season for Gollob in his league racing, the Bydgoszcz-born legend has still reached five of this year’s 10 SGP finals.
And after watching his rider roar to 21 points and victory at the FIM Scandinavian SGP in Malilla on September 8, Gaszynski says Gollob and his crew will fight on for a medal.
"Team Tomasz Gollob never gives up â€“ even when the chips are down, we keep plugging away and hope for the best."

He said: “We’re really happy with the result we got in Malilla. It was one of those good nights. We were lucky it was a good one for us and we’ve just got to keep the momentum going.
“Team Tomasz Gollob never gives up – even when the chips are down, we keep plugging away and hope for the best.
“Even though we’ve had a few bad meetings in the league and Grand Prix this season, we’re still optimistic. We know what our goals are and we’ll try to realise them.”
Asked if Team Gollob fancied their chances of sneaking into the top three, Gaszynski replied: “We’ll see what happens. There are two rounds to go and 48 points to be scored. Anything is possible. As long as it’s still mathematically do-able, we’ll always say there’s a chance.
“There are 48 points to score from Tomasz’s side, but it also depends on what the top boys do and how many points they take. It’s not only Chris Holder and Greg Hancock; Antonio Lindback is having a fantastic end to the season since Terenzano. It’s all for grabs.”
