The established order of the past decade of Grand Prix action was also upset by Swedish rider Freddie Lindgren. Lindgren finished 10th in the 2008 season but finished in second place in Prague. He also had the leading points of the night.
Crump, a two time World Speedway Champion made the podium and finished third overall. Crump struggled at times in the heats trying to get grip on the super slick track. His win in the semi-final gave him another chance in the final to take top honors.
“My start in the final saw me last into the first turn so I knew I had my work cut out,” said the Australian Rider. “Making the final and getting a podium position was a good result. If I can make the final at every round this year I will be happy. There are nine more GP’s and I have a lot of hard work ahead of me if I am to win a third World Championship.”
Crump uses K&N products. “I love K&N filters, they are the best in the world,” he said. “I have solely used K&N products and never had a problem. K&N is the best for dirt track racing. I am racing for the World Championship and I only put the best on my bikes. K&N delivers just that.”
Round two of the Speedway Grand Prix World Championship takes place at Leszno in Poland on May 5.
