WOFFY INJURY WORRIES

Triple world champion Tai Woffinden’s title defence hangs in the balance after he crashed out of Wroclaw’s PGE Ekstraliga trip to Lublin.

Triple world champion Tai Woffinden’s title defence hangs in the balance after he crashed out of Wroclaw’s PGE Ekstraliga trip to Lublin on Friday.

The Great Britain hero withdrew from the meeting following a tangle with Russian racer Grigorii Laguta in heat one.

Posting on Twitter at 22:58 UK time, Woffinden confirmed he suffered a “broken T3 (vertebra), shoulder blade and bruised lung”, but the tough-as-nails Scunthorpe-born star insisted “be back soon – thanks for the support.”

Woffinden is notoriously quick at recovering from injuries, but he faces a race against time to get himself ready for the ANLAS Czech SGP in Prague on June 15.

Despite losing their talisman, Wroclaw still battled their way to a 48-42 victory with reserve Maksym Drabik putting in a huge performance on 14 paid 15. Maciej Janowski raced to 12 points and Max Fricke bagged 11 paid 12.

Wiktor Lampart topped the Lublin scoring on 10 paid 11 with SGP first reserve Robert Lambert adding five.

In the day’s other meeting, Leszno got back to winning ways as Piotr Pawlicki scored 13 points to lead them to a 52-38 triumph at home to Grudziadz.

Russian ace Emil Sayfutdinov stormed to 11 points, while Janusz Kolodziej collected 10 paid 12. Danish racer Kenneth Bjerre tallied 10 for Grudziadz, Artem Laguta notched nine, Przemyslaw Pawlicki added eight paid nine and Antonio Lindback scored seven paid 10.
