Crump finishes fourth overall

Posted:

The final round of the 2011 World Speedway Championship held at Gorzow in Poland last Saturday night was abandoned after 16 heats as rain continued to fall throughout the evening making track conditions unrideable.

The event was declared with newly crowned World Champion Greg Hancock coming out on top ahead of Nicki Pedersen and Russian Emil Sayfutdinov with Crump claiming the ride of the night in heat 6 when the 36-year old Australian chased Tomasz Gollob for four laps with Crump passing Gollob in the final turn and taking the chequered flag.

Crump finished the night with six points from four rides and ended the season in fourth place overall. For Crump, this is the first time in 11 years that he has been outside the top three in the World Championship.

"Firstly I must congratulate Greg Hancock on winning the World Championship." said Crump. "He was clearly the best and most consistent rider this season.

"I have not been consistent this year like I have in the past and that is why I finished fourth but I am looking forward to a well earned break in Australia before returning in 2012 refreshed and hungry for success.
