Championship Leader Kasprzak Pulls Out Of Finnish SGP


Krzysztof Kasprzak has officially withdrawn from the Finnish FIM Speedway Grand Prix after struggling with a torn cruciate ligament he suffered at Landshut last weekend.

The world championship leader is currently 11 points clear at the top of the table and will be hoping his rivals don’t make up too much ground on his as he is replaced by first reserve Kauko Nieminen who makes his SGP debut.

Denmark’s Nicki Pedersen is currently on 24 points and will be looking to close the gap and make the most of the opportunity along with Polish rider Jaroslaw Hampel, American Greg Hancock, Australian Chris Holder and German Martin Smolinski.

Darcy Ward will be riding in Finland but is also suffering with a torn cruciate ligament.
