For Crump, the result was satisfying considering he is still recovering from surgery to his left knee less than two weeks ago. “My knee stood up to the racing well,” said Crump. “The doctors did a great job getting me back in the saddle so quickly, but there is still room for improvement with my fitness and my riding.”

The 32-year-old World Champion went from sixth to fifth position in points standings at Prague and has now moved up to fourth place overall. “I am picking up positions one by one,” said Crump. “There are still four more rounds to go in the championship so I am focusing on picking up as many points as possible right now until the last Grand Prix. Only then will we now who will be the World Speedway Champion in 2007.”

Crump also suffered a severe ankle injury during a race at Longio, Italy. “Blocking out the pain is a difficult thing to do and something that takes practice. Once I am at a meet my mind is focused on the job at hand and when I’m on the bike my adrenalin takes over from the pain.”

Crump uses K&N Engineering products. “The K&N Filters keep the dirt out of the engine,” he said. “In good or bad weather K&N is the best for dirt track racing.”

Round 8 of the Grand Prix series takes place at Daugavpils, Latvia on Saturday August 25.
