Biography

Former world No.2 Patryk Dudek returned to the FIM Speedway Grand Prix line-up after a year away in 2022, having qualified by finishing third at the 2021 FIM GP Challenge in Zarnovica, Slovakia.

 

After a slow start, he roared into form with victory at the Wölk FIM Speedway GP of Germany – Teterow, before reaching four finals in five rounds.

Dudek made a massive impact in his full-time debut series in 2017, finishing second to Jason Doyle in an epic Speedway GP World Championship race, which went all the way to the final round in Melbourne.

 

That silver medal saw Dudek become the first rider in Speedway GP history to reach the World Championship’s top two in their full-time debut season.

 

He was unable to return to rostrum in 2022, finishing seventh in the standings. Dudek was denied sixth spot by virtue of Dan Bewley’s two Speedway GP wins, but he will be keen to climb much higher in 2023.
