Taylor Poole fantastic as he finishes fifth

Posted:

Australian Taylor Poole has performed exceptionally well on the international stage today, when he finished fifth overall at the 2007 Individual Speedway Youth Gold Trophy in Czestochowa, Poland, while compatriot Sam Masters has finished in a creditable 11th position. After qualifying for the 16-rider field earlier in the morning semi-final, Poole got off to an exceptional start in the final by winning his first two heats in convincing fashion. Riding against Swede Pontus Aspgren in the opening heat (who later went on to tie with Poole for points and claim outright fourth), the young Aussie led from start to finish in one of his best rides of the week. Poole‰Ûªs second heat was a different story. Having started off the blue gate, Poole started well to take the lead and control of the race at the first corner. However, on the final corner, Dane Rasmus Jensen skipped past Poole, and in a sprint to the line the Aussie managed to get his bike in front to win the heat by the smallest of margins. A second placing in his third race had Poole as the outright leader heading into the final two heats, however he was unable to claim more than two third place finishes from his yellow and white starting gates. Poole‰Ûªs final race was an absolute stunner, with all four riders part of the top-five contesting for the outright win, as well as the podium positions. However Poole‰Ûªs fairytale script was not to have the magical ending that the whole Australian camp was hoping for, but despite that, there were plenty of proud, smiling Aussie faces littered amongst the crowd. Speaking after a long day of racing, Poole said that being pitted against the best riders in the final couple of heats made his quest for a podium placing tough. ‰ÛÏIt was pretty hard because I had some easy races early and some very hard ones at the end,‰Û
