DUDEK: INJURY WON'T SLOW DOYLE

Patryk Dudek doesn’t expect rival Jason Doyle’s broken foot to slow this progress at tonight’s Teng Tools Swedish SGP in Malilla.

FIM Speedway Grand Prix title contender Patryk Dudek doesn’t expect rival Jason Doyle’s broken foot to slow this progress at tonight’s Teng Tools Swedish SGP in Malilla.

The Dackarna hero arrives at his Swedish Elitserien home track placed third in the World Championship on 75 points – level with Maciej Janowski in second and just three points behind frontrunner Doyle.

Doyle is the only rider to have reached all six SGP finals this year, but has been nursing a broken foot for nearly two months.

We know Jason has a problem with the foot, but he always gets good results in the GP, so I don’t think it will be a big problem for him.

Patryk Dudek

Despite the Aussie missing meetings for Swindon over the last week or so, Dudek is confident his Zielona Gora team mate won’t be hampered by his injury.

He said: “We know Jason has a problem with the foot, but he always gets good results in the GP, so I don’t think it will be a big problem for him. Everybody will be fighting tonight.”

Dudek expects another thriller in Malilla tonight on a track with a big reputation for great racing.

He said: “Riders race here in the Elitserien, so I think they all know what the track is like. They will already know where the good lines are to pass.

“Maybe this will be the best Grand Prix of this year because there will be good racing tonight. We will see.”

Dudek remains the only rider in the field without an SGP win to his name. He would love to top the box in Malilla tonight, but admits piling up points is his top priority.

He said: “We will see what happens tonight. Winning is not important. What is important is scoring more points.”
