World champion Tai Woffinden reeled off five straight race wins for Wroclaw but couldn’t save them from a 50-40 loss away to PGE Ekstraliga champions Leszno on Sunday.

Despite finishing third behind World Under-21 champion Bartosz Smektala and SGP rival Emil Sayfutdinov in his opening outing, the Brit blazed through the rest of his card unbeaten to pile up 16 points.

He was backed up by nine paid 10 from six rides from Maciej Janowski, while Max Fricke scored six paid eight.

But it was Leszno who got the verdict, with Russian racer Sayfutdinov dropping just one point on his way to 13 paid 14 from five. Piotr Pawlicki picked up 11 and Brady Kurtz collected a solid eight.

SGP newcomer Janusz Kolodziej, Smektala and Dominik Kubera all scored six paid seven each.

Elsewhere, Ekstraliga newcomers Lublin defied the loss of former world No.2 Andreas Jonsson in heat four to record a 49-41 victory at home to Grudziadz.

AJ crashed after tangling with team mate Wiktor Lampart and withdrew from the action complaining of a hand injury.

In his absence, Dawid Lampart topped the scorechart on 11 paid 12, while Pawel Miesiac bagged nine paid 10, Mikkel Michelsen added eight paid 10 and British champion Robert Lambert recorded eight paid nine.

Danish star Kenneth Bjerre led the visitors on 14 paid 15, with Krzysztof Buczkowski racing to 11 paid 12. Antonio Lindback scored seven paid eight.
