Triple world champion Tai Woffinden will spend a ninth straight season with PGE Ekstraliga finalists Wroclaw in 2020.

The Brit has extended his stay at the Olympic Stadium, where he has emerged as one of the club’s greatest ever riders since joining in 2012, before winning the 2013 FIM Speedway Grand Prix World Championship as a 500/1 rank outsider.

Woffinden, who has no plans to race for any other club in 2020, joins forces with the likes of SGP rivals Maciej Janowski and Max Fricke, as well as World Under-21 champion Maksym Drabik and fellow Great Britain star Dan Bewley.

Wroclaw president Andrzej Rusko said: “Tai is one of our leaders, a great personality, a great athlete and an extremely important character in our team.

“His attitude mobilises colleagues and captivates the Wroclaw fans. He is also a model for young riders.

“Tai has declared that in 2020 he has set two sporting goals on which he wants to focus 100 percent – the fight for the Polish team championship with Betard Sparta Wroclaw and winning a fourth individual World Championship title.”

Woffinden and Bewley aren’t the only Brits set for PGE Ekstraliga action in 2020 with Robert Lambert posting a photo of Rybnik’s stadium on his Instagram story, strengthening rumours he’s on his way to the top flight’s newly-promoted side.

There is also talk he will be joined by Latvian international Andzejs Lebedevs, who raced at Wroclaw last term.

Meanwhile, Czestochowa have confirmed Swedish star Freddie Lindgren has signed the three-year contract they announced at the end of the season. He joins Leon Madsen in signing up for three seasons and it’s rumoured they will team up with 2017 world champion Jason Doyle.

Zielona Gora have strengthened their squad by recruiting promising Czech young gun Jan Kvech.
