Tai Woffinden: Still the champion-elect despite setback

Sky Bet

Britain's Tai Woffinden will have to wait another two weeks in his bid to claim a first FIM Speedway world title after a disappointing night in Stockholm.

Woffinden crashed and suffered a suspected broken collarbone in the second heat of the night. He broke the same bone at the British Grand Prix in June.

He battled on through the pain at the Rockklassiker Scandinavian FIM Speedway Grand Prix and even managed to win heat 14. Woffinden's total of seven points saw him finish in 10th place on the night.

The Wolverhampton rider started the day 22 points ahead of his nearest rival Jarek Hampel going into the penultimate race of the season at Stockholm's Friends Arena.

But Hampel finished third, the Pole's 13-point haul cutting the gap to 16 points heading into the final race in Torun, Poland in two weeks' time.

Dane Niels-Kristian Iversen won the Grand Prix meeting, with Slovenian Matej Zagar second, ahead of Hampel in third and and American Greg Hancock fourth.
