Russian star Artem Laguta is set to make his racing return for Grudziadz on April 26 after confirming he had watched his last match from the sidelines.
Laguta missed the club’s home clash with Czestochowa last night as he recovers from a broken right collarbone sustained in the Edward Jancarz Memorial meeting at Gorzow.
After undergoing surgery to have the bone plated, Laguta has started physiotherapy and could get back on the training track next week before racing for Grudziadz at Zielona Gora.
The news comes as a huge boost to his club, who won 49-41 in his absence with Przemyslaw Pawlicki starring on 14 paid 15 points.
It also means Laguta will be ready for the World Championship opener, the PZM Warsaw SGP at PGE Narodowy on May 18.
Laguta’s manager Rafal Lewicki confirmed: “It’s true – coming back on April 26 is the plan. The recovery is going is alright. He has the plate in there, so now he has started the physio.
“Hopefully next week we can try to go on the track and we will see what happens then.
“The plan is to be back for this important league match. It hasn’t been easy for him to watch the first two from the sidelines. This also means he will be on the track with the guys in Warsaw too.”
