Clever Kurtz eases through at Individual Speedway Youth Gold Trophy

Posted:

Australian Todd Kurtz has put in a stellar day of racing to finish equal first, before eventually coming second in a three-rider race off, in the third qualification meeting at the Individual Speedway Youth Gold Trophy in Poland. Kurtz was on fire early taking three heat wins from his first three starts, with two second places following on to ensure that he made it through to a final race-off. Despite leading early in the race-off, Kurtz could only manage second for the race, taking him through to the semi-finals where he will join fellow Australian riders Taylor Poole, Alex Davies and Sam Masters. Kurtz showed riding maturity beyond his years in his opening heat as he slickly overtook two riders from three-wide on the second lap, to take a lead which he never relinquished. In the second heat, Kurtz found himself half-a-lap clear in the lead, and sensibly he made sure that he would claim all three heat points by easing his bike to the finish line. After making it through to the race-off, the Aussie was lucky enough to draw the red-inside starting position, but in a split moment he drifted back into second spot which was where he finished. Speaking after claiming his trophy on the podium, Kurtz admitted that he was not fazed by losing the race-off, and said that there was a lot more riding to take place before the event is over. ‰ÛÏUnfortunately I got a little bit distracted, but not to worry. You don‰Ûªt win it in the quarter-final,‰Û
