World No.2 Patryk Dudek’s SGP medal chances have suffered a hammer-blow after he sustained a suspected broken arm in Malilla on Tuesday.

Dudek was taken to hospital after an awkward tumble with Vastervik star Peter Ljung in heat 11 of Dackarna’s 49-41 Swedish Elitserien play-off semi-final, first leg win.

If a break is confirmed, it would be a cruel end to the season for a rider who roared into form with victory at the AZTORIN Slovenian SGP in Krsko on Saturday, and would dash his medal hopes.

It could also jeopardise Zielona Gora’s Polish Ekstraliga future as they prepare to meet the beaten First Division play-off finalists in a promotion/relegation shoot-out. Meanwhile, Dudek would be a tough man to replace for Dackarna in their quest for Elitserien title gold.

Polish star Pawel Przedpelski impressed on 13 points for Dackarna while Denmark’s Hans Andersen tallied 10. Four-time world champion Greg Hancock contributed nine paid 11. It was a tough night for Maciej Janowski, who scored three paid four.

Triple world champion Nicki Pedersen led the Vastervik scoring on 10 paid 11, with Peter Kildemand notching nine paid 10 and Peter Ljung picking up a straight nine. Slovak star Martin Vaculik struggled to one paid two.

Aussie racer Jason Doyle powered to a 15-point maximum as Rospiggarna took a huge stride towards the final with a 51-39 semi-final, first leg win at Smederna.

JD produced a flawless five rides to follow up his second place at the AZTORIN Slovenian SGP.

He was brilliantly supported by 12 paid 13 from British champion Robert Lambert and nine from Andreas Jonsson.

Swedish champion Freddie Lindgren led the Smederna scoring on 11, but he lacked high-scoring support with SGP 2019 qualifier Niels-Kristian Iversen the next best performer on six.
