Swede as example, beat local star, Dominik Kubera. Also Robert Lambert was as fast as always and he did some epic movements on the track.

In second semifinal, everything were different. Smektała, Kubera and Lambert made a perfect show for fans. All three riders made some epic rides in the corners, what was fantastic summary of today’s competition.

Before final, everybody belives in epic fight between all four riders. For 2 laps, all three Poles fought for a win. Unfortunately on second turn Kubera and Drabik had a little contact, what caused „Torres” fall and Kubera was excluded.

- I’m not glad as I want to be. I rode in my hometown and I was on the lead in first verion of final race. I don’t want to remember that. The most important is that I scored a lot of points to general classification – said Bartosz Smektała.
