Polish racer Patryk Dudek is delighted to continue defying his injury knocks as he stands second in the World Championship after reaching a third straight Slovenian SGP final last Saturday.

The Zielona Gora hero finished fourth at Matije Gubca Stadium, scoring 12 points after qualifying for the semi on nine, before winning his semi-final.

While he could only look on as compatriot Bartosz Zmarzlik, Martin Vaculik and Leon Madsen reached the rostrum, the result still leaves Dudek second in the standings.

Prague is next and I enjoy racing there. I was second last year, so I go there with good memories and hope everything will be okay.

Zmarzlik’s win saw the Gorzow man overhaul his international team mate for top spot by virtue of his superior FIM ranking, but Dudek has had to overcome adversity to be level on points with the world No.2.

His 2018 season was ended by a broken arm and his SGP comeback in Warsaw on May 18 was hampered by a knock to the hip, which he overcame to grab third place on the night and 16 points to top the standings.

After a tough fortnight in the PGE Ekstraliga and Swedish Elitserien, Dudek was delighted to pile up the points again.

He said: “I’m very positive and feel very good after my crash at the end of last season. My hand feels okay and I feel good on the bike – I’m racing at 100 percent all of the time.

“It’s a second Grand Prix and a second final for me, so I feel good because of that. It was my third final in Krsko, so I do like this track. I’m happy with my performance.

“Prague is next and I enjoy racing there. I was second last year, so I go there with good memories and hope everything will be okay.”
