Once Kryterium Asów, now Speedway Best Pairs

Udostępnij na:

 Speedway fans are biting their nails, waiting for beginning of new season. Winter is too long and the season too short. When the spring is coming and riders are going out from workshops, we’re waiting for them to give it all. Some years ago, first tournament of the season in Poland was Kryterium Asów. Today it’s Speedway Best Pairs.

 Kryterium Asów was organized since 1951, when the best was Gwardia Bydgoszcz rider, Zbigniew Raniszewski. After that, we had some breaks and modifications. Finally, foreign riders were invited and the last edition in 2012 won Australian Darcy Ward.

Today we inaugurate the season during Speedway Best Pairs first round, which will take place at March 24th in Toruń. Also in previous years, Motoarena kicked-off the speedway year. Since 2016, in Speedway Best pairs are riding sponsor teams.

In some previous years, best riders in the world are fighting in Speedway Best Pairs. So far, the best was Fogo Power, represented last year by Pawlicki brothers and Bartosz Zmarzlik. Last year, they made a huge show, especially in final heat. For a long time, fans though that Boll Team riders are going to be better, but Piotr Pawlicki and Zmarzlik made something special nad won 4:3. That gave them victory in competition. There started they way to the championship.

For the third time in a row in Copernicus hometown, we expect interesting start of the season. That longing for speedway could have an important impact for the crown. Who knows, maybe this time other team will beat Fogo Power?
