Polish champion Janusz Kolodziej hopes adding some German Bundesliga action to his schedule helps him hit form after joining Landshut for 2020.

The Leszno racer faces a quieter calendar this season after exiting the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series.

Sometimes during the season I don't have much racing. So I was looking for different solutions to fill the gaps in the schedule.

Janusz Kolodziej

He has previously competed in the Swedish Elitserien. But he hopes crossing the German border and racing in Bavaria alongside SGP star Martin Smolinski gives him the extra saddle time he needs to stay sharp for the PGE Ekstraliga.

He told Przeglad Sportowy: “Sometimes during the season I don't have much racing. So I was looking for different solutions to fill the gaps in the schedule.

“In the past I used to go to Landshut, so I decided to return to this city. We'll see how I go there this year, if the meetings start at all.

“I have never ridden extremely well on the track there, so I hope that I will have the opportunity to improve.”

Kolodziej toasted two of the finest moments of his career in 2019, winning the Anlas Czech SGP, before going on to lift his fourth Polish title – a huge feat in the world’s most competitive speedway nation.

Whatever 2020 brings, Kolodziej is keen to keep enjoying his racing as he targets an immediate return to the SGP line-up in the months ahead.

The Tarnow-born racer added: “I want to enjoy the ride. I know that if I enjoy riding a motorcycle, the results will come too. We work a lot on every aspect to develop my racing.”
