Prague winner Jason Doyle took his blistering form to Sweden, piling up 14 paid 16 points as he joined forces with Max Fricke to rescue Rospiggarna a 45-45 Elitserien draw at home to Lejonen on Tuesday.

World Under-21 champion Fricke, who raced to 13 paid 14, led Doyle to a final-heat 5-1 which snatched the hosts a share of the spoils. Swedish star Jacob Thorssell weighed in with eight paid nine.

Aussie champion Sam Masters and Danish racer Hans Andersen starred for the Lions on 10 points apiece, while Mathias Thornblom added eight paid 10 and Piotr Pawlicki scored seven.

Lions’ victory chances could have been boosted by Chris Holder’s presence in the side, but the Aussie reportedly asked to sit the meeting out as he sought some respite from his hectic schedule.

Elsewhere, world champion Greg Hancock’s resurgence continued with 15 paid 16 points for Piraterna, but he couldn’t save them from a 54-36 defeat away to Masarna.

Double world champion Tai Woffinden led the Avesta side’s scoring on 11 paid 12, with Linus Sundstrom racking up 10 paid 11. Artur Czaja notched nine paid 11 and Kim Nilsson collected nine paid 10.

Danish champion Niels-Kristian Iversen supported Hancock with 11 for the Pirates, but Emil Sayfutdinov and Peter Kildemand struggled to four apiece.

Swedish ace Freddie Lindgren’s rock-solid league-racing return continued as he raced to 14 paid 15 points from six rides for Dackarna. But it wasn’t enough to rescue them from a 53-37 loss at near neighbours Vetlanda.

Six-time SWC winner Jaroslaw Hampel tallied 12 for the hosts, with Bartosz Zmarzlik also shining on 11 paid 12. Martin Vaculik scored six paid seven. Polish star Maciej Janowski raced to nine paid 10 for the visitors, but World Championship leader Patryk Dudek managed just four.

In the day’s other meeting, Danish rider Mikkel Michelsen was Smederna’s star on 13 paid 14 points as they claimed a 48-42 victory away to Indianerna. Pontus Aspgren accrued nine paid 10 and Matej Zagar contributed eight paid 10.

Polish racer Adrian Miedzinski led the Indians assault on 14, with Piotr Protasiewicz picking up eight paid nine and Vaclav Milik and Victor Palovaara scoring seven each.
