World No.2 Bartosz Zmarzlik warmed up for the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations in fine style after winning the Individual Ekstraliga Riders Championship in Gdansk on Friday.

The Polish international raced through the heats with 12 points along with Martin Vaculik to secure automatic qualification for the final.

He then topped the box by triumphing ahead of Leszno man Piotr Pawlicki, Vaculik and Aussie star Jason Doyle to underline his dominance in a league where he has topped the averages for the past three seasons.

Pawlicki won semi-final two ahead of SGP trio Leon Madsen, Maciej Janowski and Emil Sayfutdinov after recording 10 in his heats, while Doyle took the chequered flag in the first semi, beating Patryk Dudek, Mikkel Michelsen and Kenneth Bjerre.

Doyle and Madsen raced to 11 points in the qualifiers with Dudek and Sayfutdinov tallying 10. Bjerre notched nine, Michelsen scored eight and Janowski only just made the top 10 on six, pipping Artem Laguta on countback.

Fredrik Lindgren and Grigory Laguta fell short on four, while triple world champion Nicki Pedersen and Janusz Kolodziej collected two.
