Brit Star Tai Woffinden takes the win in Prague

Posted:

Great Britain‰Ûªs Tai Woffinden moved within a point of the World Championship lead after becoming the country‰Ûªs first SGP winner in nearly six years when he triumphed in the Mitas Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix in Prague on Saturday.

God Save the Queen rang out across the Marketa Stadium after Woffinden produced a gating masterclass to head Poland‰Ûªs Krzysztof Kasprzak and the SGP series‰Ûª bionic man Nicki Pedersen, who bagged a bronze medal, despite breaking his left forearm just two weeks ago.

Russian racer Emil Sayfutdinov was fourth after he was excluded for touching the tapes. He still left Prague as World Championship leader after notching 17 points.

Woffinden won four of his five heat rides and finished his five outings on 13 points, before working wonders to overhaul Pedersen and take the chequered flag in semi-final two.

He then exploded from gate one in the medal race to become the first Brit to win a Grand Prix since Chris Harris topped the rostrum in Cardiff on June 30, 2007.

Woffinden, who clinched the British Championship for the first time at Wolverhampton on Monday, will fly the Union flag in the Fogo British FIM Speedway Grand Prix at Cardiff‰Ûªs Millennium Stadium on June 1.

There could not be more hype surrounding the 22-year-old, who is riding at the top of his game.

Woffinden will have a raucous crowd behind him in the Welsh capital for the SGP series‰Ûª event of the year. The Scunthorpe-born racer would love to spray the champagne in front of over 40,000 people.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt even explain what it would be like to win there,‰Û
