EKSTRALIGA | WOFFY BOUNCES BACK FOR MAX

Tai Woffinden defied an early crash to rack up a 13 paid 15- point maximum as Wroclaw booked their place in the PGE Ekstraliga play-offs.

Triple world champion Tai Woffinden defied an early crash to rack up a 13 paid 15-point maximum as Wroclaw booked their place in the PGE Ekstraliga play-off semi-finals.

The Brit led his side to a 51-39 triumph at relegated Rybnik to seal all three points on offer – earning Wroclaw third spot in the standings and a showdown with second-placed Gorzow in the semi-finals.

His night started with a bump when this weekend’s SGP wild card Vaclav Milik lifted as the riders charged down the back straight in heat three and brought down team mate Robert Lambert.

Woffinden couldn’t avoid his Great Britain colleague and crashed heavily, with the ambulance called on to the shale. Mercifully everyone walked away from the incident, which saw Milik excluded.

Woffy picked himself up to win the re-run, before storming through the rest of the night, unbeaten by an opponent.

He was backed up by a handy 12 paid 13 points from Aussie star Max Fricke, who is roaring into form at the business end of the season. Maciej Janowski tallied 10 paid 11 and Chris Holder notched nine.

Kacper Woryna topped the Rybnik scorechart on 12, while Mateusz Szczepaniak added eight paid 10. Lambert registered eight in the club’s last meeting ahead of their relegation to the First Division for 2021.

Wroclaw’s charge into third place sees them host Gorzow in their play-off semi-final first leg on Sunday. Zielona Gora welcome league leaders and reigning champions Leszno in the other semi.
