Polish star Janusz Kolodziej has defended his decision to walk away from the Swedish Elitserien and just focus on racing for Tarnow this year.

Kolodziej endured a nightmare season in the Grand Prix series in 2011 and failed to hold on to his spot.

He also struggled with Vetlanda in Sweden and has been replaced in the side by Emil Sayfutdinov.

Kolodziej also left Leszno to return to his home town team Tarnow and has hit double figures in all but one of his meetings so far this term.

Polish national team boss Marek Cieslak has reportedly questioned the former Reading rider’s decision just to compete in his homeland. But the rider says he is benefitting from racing every Sunday, instead of enduring the hard, trans-European schedule most riders go through.

He told Sportowefakty.pl: "I have been racing for so many years in speedway that I know roughly how many meetings I need and what is best for me.

"I am very happy with this season, and that I’ve have not gone around the world and have had a normal life. For this reason, I’m racing in Tarnow, and so far everything is going perfectly for me.”
