Aussies Head To Race-Off After A British Mauling

Posted:

Triumphant Team Great Britain boss Alun Rossiter was delighted to see his side silence their doubters as the Lions roared into their first Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup Final since 2010.

Team GB triumphed on 44 points in Event 1 at King‰Ûªs Lynn tonight, seeing off a spirited challenge from the USA, who finished second on 37. Luckless Australia were third on 36, while Italy were eliminated from the competition after finishing fourth on 10.

The Lions join hosts Poland in the Monster Energy SWC Final Bydgoszcz on Saturday, while the USA and Australia contest the Race Off at the ZKS Polonia Stadium on Thursday, where they meet the second and third-placed sides from Event 2 at Vastervik on Tuesday.

Rossiter went into the tournament riled by those who put his riders down and doubted their chances of victory. So he was elated to see Tai Woffinden (12), Danny King (11), Chris Harris (11) and Simon Stead (10) all rack up double-figure returns and give him the perfect start to his reign as national team manager.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve got to be happy with our first Final since 2010." Rossiter said. "I genuinely believed and I always said we could win it. I said from day one that this wasn‰Ûªt a dream ‰ÛÒ it was do-able.

‰ÛÏI just wanted to give the boys a bit of belief because everyone keeps putting them down. They proved everyone wrong. People were saying Steady shouldn‰Ûªt be in it or Danny King or Bomber. They said it should be Tai Woffinden and a load of youngsters. But these lads showed what they could do for me.‰Û
