MAGIC'S TIME IN 2019?

Maciej Janowski insists he will be “ready for a big fight next year” after admitting “maybe it’s not my time yet” in the SGP title race.

Polish star Maciej Janowski insists he will be “ready for a big fight next year” after admitting “maybe it’s not my time yet” in the FIM Speedway World Championship race.

The Wroclaw icon finished fourth in the SGP standings for the second straight season after being pipped to bronze by Freddie Lindgren at the Torun SGP.

While Bartosz Zmarzlik has now won silver and bronze and Patryk Dudek finished second last season, Magic is yet to appear on the podium.

But Janowski has long been tipped as a future world champion and pledged to keep putting in the work to make that dream a reality.

He said: “Maybe it’s not my time yet. But I have good motivation. I will try to have a good winter for sure. I will put 100 percent of my energy into this winter and be ready for a big fight next year.

“This year it was so close but so far. It is how it is. This season has taught me a lot and I feel a little bit disappointed. But I couldn’t find good speed in my bikes in Torun. I didn’t have such a good meeting in Torun and Teterow with the crash. I lost points in both.”

Janowski is keen to make the most of his winter as his preparations begin for SGP 2019. He said: “I will be training a lot and maybe I will have a small holiday. But then I will be focused on next year. I can’t wait for next season.”
