Australian Troy Batchelor gets the call up for Polish Speedway GP

Posted:

Australian Troy Batchelor has received a call up to compete at the final World Speedway Gp being held in Poland on October the 5th.

Polish speedway hero Tomasz Gollob, who fractured his C7 vertebrae at last Saturday‰Ûªs Rockklassiker Scandinavian SGP in Stockholm, has officially withdrawn from the final round of the series and his place in Torun will be taken by Australian champion Troy Batchelor.

The Brisbane-born rider qualified as third reserve for this year‰Ûªs SGP series after finishing sixth in the GP Challenge at Gorican in September 2012. But with first reserve Ales Dryml and second stand-in Leon Madsen already replacing Chris Holder and Emil Sayfutdinov respectively, Batchelor has been handed his SGP debut.

Also coming in for the final round of the season is In-form Polish star Adrian Miedzinski who has been confirmed as the wild card for the Torun FIM Speedway Grand Prix.

Miedzinski, who dons the No.16 race jacket at the Marian Rose Motoarena, played a pivotal role in Torun reaching the Polish Ekstraliga play-off final in a season, which has seen them lose Chris Holder, Tomasz Gollob and Darcy Ward to injury at different times.

The 28-year-old has spent his whole career with the club, where his hard-charging, determined style has made him a firm favourite.

Miedzinski scored six points as a wild card on his last SGP appearance at the Motoarena on June 19, 2010, which saw him qualify for the semi-final on countback.

He is joined in the Torun SGP by club team mates Pawel Przedpelski and Kamil Pulczynski, who will serve as track reserves.

Przedpelski, who wears No.17, has established himself as one of Poland‰Ûªs hottest junior prospects with a string of double-figure scores in the Ekstraliga. His reserve partner Pulczynski, who served as a stand-in rider at last season‰Ûªs Torun round, lines up at No.18.
