 Speedway Euro Championship 2017 cycle is coming to the end. Fight for the top places in the GC is very interesting. However, battle for 5th place is as important as the one for medals. It seems like the fight for maintenance will be internal Polish business.

 Placed on 5th place, Krzysztof Kasprzak has 6 points less than third Andreas Jonsson and fourth Ariom Laguta. Stal Gorzów rider is riding well. His best result is podium in Gustrow. „KK” has some experience on difficult ends. Last year he was in similar situation - he fought against Vaclav Milik for sliver medal. Finally better was Czech, who won the extra race.

Mateusz Szczepaniak, Speedway Euro Championship 2017 underdog is placed behind Kasprzak. Speedway Wanda Kraków rider, who turned out to be the biggest suprise after SEC Challenge in Gorican, showed that he’s in the best form this year. On Motoarena, younger Szczepaniak brother was faster than everybody expected, which earned him a lot of respect. Experienced Pole made pretty good result in Gustrow and Hallstavik. Can 30-year-old rider fight for top 5?

Last Pole able to finish SEC 2017 in top 5 is Przemysław Pawlicki. Older Pawlicki brother has a pretty good season behind him. Few days ago he received promotion to Grand Prix 2018. Furthermore, along with Stal Gorzów teammates, he will fight for Polish team championship. However, before first SEC round, Pawlicki was one of the biggest favourites to take the gold. If he wants to finish cycle with a good result, he has to repeat his performance in Toruń and come to the final. Who knows, maybe Polish fans are going to help him?
