PGE Ekstraliga champions Leszno have confirmed their entire title-winning side will defend the crown in 2019 as SGP stars Emil Sayfutdinov and Janusz Kolodziej return.
Both men played key roles in the club’s second straight title triumph, along with former world No.2 Jaroslaw Hampel and Piotr Pawlicki.
They are joined in returning by World Under-21 champion Bartosz Smektala, Brady Kurtz, Dominik Kubera, Szymon Szlauderbach and Aussie Under-21 champion Jaimon Lidsey, who raced for feeder club Rawicz.
It’s rare for a club to retain their entire squad from one season to the next and the Bulls’ announcement will once again put them among the favourites for gold in 2019.
Elsewhere, Zielona Gora have continued their very promising team building by tying Danish racer Michael Jepsen Jensen to a two-year contract.
The former SGP rider played a pivotal role in keeping Falubaz in the top flight and with the club recruiting Nicki Pedersen and Martin Vaculik for next year, they will fancy their chances of a title tilt.
