2017 Speedway GP Rider Numbers Revealed
The 2017 FIM Speedway Grand Prix rider numbers have been revealed as Russian racer Emil Sayfutdinov wears No.89 in the World Championship for the first time.

The Salavat-born star selected No.89 when personal rider numbers were introduced for the 2014 season.

GP Challenge winner Patryk Dudek has picked No.692 for his first SGP season after being unable to choose the No.69 he prefers to race with, as this is held by Aussie icon Jason Doyle.

Slovak star Martin Vaculik selected his No.54, while triple world champion Nicki Pedersen switches from No.3 to No.12 ‰ÛÒ his new ranking for 2017 ‰ÛÒ after opting not to race with a personal number once again.

The rest of the riders retain their 2016 numbers with four-time world champion Greg Hancock wearing No.45 ‰ÛÒ his hero Bruce Penhall‰Ûªs former number ‰ÛÒ while Great Britain racer Tai Woffinden is No.108, which represents his birthday.

Bartosz Zmarzlik dons No.95 and Chris Holder keeps No.23. Doyle sticks with No.69, while Piotr Pawlicki races with No.777 and Antonio Lindback is No.85 ‰ÛÒ his year of birth.

Niels-Kristian Iversen retains No.88 and Matej Zagar is No.55. Maciej Janowski keeps faith with No.71 and Fredrik Lindgren is No.66.
