Andrzejs Lebedevs was the most effective rider of EKO-DIR Speedway Team in this year's Speedway Best Pairs. Despite his good performance in Gniezno, his team didn’t defend GC place on the podium.
Andrzejs Lebedevs was one of the best riders in final Speedway Best Pairs round in Gniezno. He scored less points than Tai Woffinden and Przemysław Pawlicki only.
- I’m glad, that final SBP round took place in Gniezno. I love to ride there and I’m coming back with huge smile, because it’s honor to ride for such awesome fans – said Andrzejs Lebedevs.
Despite Lebedevs’s brave posture, his team, placed on 3rd position in the GC before final in Gniezno, didn’t defend that and finished the tournament on fifth place.
- What can I say? There was one, maybe two points missing from us to take part in race-off. Tomek and I lost some points on the track, although we tried to find right setups – said EKO-DIR Speedway Team representant – Congratulations for guys on the podium for fantastic season. In Gniezno there weren’t any falls, everybody rode fair. That's what we like.
This year Speedway Best Pairs edition was a huge success. The best riders in the world, affiliated in 7 sponsor teams delivered a lot of emotions until last races in Toruń, Landshut and Gniezno.
- Speedway Best Pairs is heavily planted tournament. The best riders are riding there. For sponsors it’s like speedway Formula 1 cycle. I think, that this tour's concept is right. The atmosphere is laid-back, we’re riding for fun and that’s why we can make the best speedway. If we want to develop our discipline, we have to make something new, and One Sport is going that way. They're giving us a lot of new energy – finished Speedway Euro Championship leader.
