Krzysztof Kasprzak edges out Darcy Ward for Polish victory

Posted:

Polish star Krzysztof Kasprzak admits winning his battle with nerves has transformed his fortunes after claiming his maiden SGP victory in an epic Meridian Lifts European FIM Speedway Grand Prix final in Bydgoszcz.

Special KK was a popular winner in his homeland, after scything under Australian sensation Darcy Ward on the final turn to cap a speedy performance which puts him 11 points clear at the World Championship summit.

Kasprzak‰Ûªs victory is even more astonishing after he failed to score a single point in five rides at Bydgoszcz in 2013.

The Leszno-born rider could not be happier with his engines and crew and is delighted with the part they‰Ûªre playing in what has been a dramatic upsurge in fortunes.

But he admits enlisting the help of a psychologist is finally helping him conquer his battle with nerves in the SGP series.

"My psychologist is making my head relaxed," Kasprzak said. "I haven‰Ûªt got too much pressure. When I was stressed before, my body tensed up and I couldn‰Ûªt race properly.

‰ÛÏEveryone was writing me messages and telling me on Facebook ‰Û÷you‰Ûªll win, you‰Ûªll win‰Ûª this weekend. But I don‰Ûªt like this. When people say this, it‰Ûªs usually a bad meeting.

‰ÛÏBut now I‰Ûªm just thinking ‰Û÷it‰Ûªs just a league meeting‰Ûª and this is good. I‰Ûªve got the best psychologist in the world. But I cannot say her name because she is so good.‰Û
