Great Britain hero Tai Woffinden raced to a 15-point maximum in the first-ever Online SGP heats – but can he top the podium on Saturday?

The 16 stars who made it into your SGP Line-Up of the Decade battled it out for your votes on @SpeedwayGP Twitter throughout this week, and triple world champion Tai Woffinden came out on top with a 15-point maximum.

Woffinden was the only rider to beat American legend Greg Hancock, as the four-time world champion raced to 14, while triple world champion Jason Crump also starred on 13.

Aussie legend Darcy Ward’s short but sweet career in the sport captured SGP fans’ imagination so much that he stormed to 12 points, including a huge win over Polish great Tomasz Gollob in his final heat.

Gollob ended his five rides on 11, with Emil Sayfutdinov making it through on 10 and current SGP world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik qualifying on nine.

Aussie star Jason Doyle snatched the last semi-final spot after winning an epic scrap for second with Nicki Pedersen in heat 18.

Top spot on the scorechart sees Woffinden face off with three of the biggest names of his generation – Ward, Sayfutdinov and Zmarzlik – in Semi-Final One from 10:00 UK / 11:00 CET.

Hancock lines up in Semi-Final Two, which features two of the giants of his generation – Crump and Gollob, with 2017 world champion Doyle completing a tantalising line-up for the race at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET.

The top two from each semi make it into the Grand Final from 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET.

Click on to @SpeedwayGP Twitter to vote for your favourite as they compete to be crowned the first-ever Online SGP winner.
