Krsko winner Patryk Dudek’s 2018 season could be over after it was confirmed he suffered a broken arm in Sweden last night.

Dudek caught the back of Vastervik star Peter Ljung and crashed awkwardly in heat 11 of Dackarna’s 49-41 Elitserien play-off semi-final, first leg win.

He was taken to hospital in Vaxjo where the arm was stabilised, before travelling back to Zielona Gora where he underwent X-rays this morning.

These confirmed Dudek has suffered a broken humerus bone in his right arm, and a statement from Falubaz confirmed a decision will be made on a treatment plan soon.

The statement read: “Patryk is in Zielona Gora. The first diagnosis was confirmed. Patryk suffered a fracture of the humerus. As soon as possible, a decision about further treatment will be made.”

The timing of the world No.2’s fall is particularly cruel as he stands just five points short of the World Championship’s top three with two rounds to race, having won the AZTORIN Slovenian SGP last Saturday.

It’s also a massive blow to his clubs as Zielona Gora could face a crunch promotion/relegation play-off against the First Division runners-up without their star man.

Swedish side Dackarna may also face a huge battle to claim Elitserien gold and a place in the Final, with their deciding leg in Vastervik on Tuesday.
