Polish star Dominik Kubera has undergone successful surgery following his crash at the Orlen FIM Speedway GP of Poland – Warsaw last Saturday.

The wild card rider suffered injuries when he lifted during Qualifying Practice and was taken to hospital, with Bartlomiej Kowalski replacing him in Saturday’s Speedway GP.

Posting on their official website, Kubera’s Polish club Lublin has confirmed that the rider underwent successful surgery after being transferred to the city.

The club wrote: “The situation that happened on Friday at PGE Narodowy in Warsaw was very hard for both Dominik Kubera, his relatives and our entire club. Due to this fact, we decided to withhold an official announcement about Dominik's health.

“Our rider was transported by ambulance to Lublin on Saturday and has already had TH12 surgery, which took place yesterday. 

“We would like to thank the entire medical team from the Provincial Hospital in Lublin with Dr. Paweł Andrzejewicz, Paweł Polak, Małgorzata Piasecka at the helm, and the company Centrum Medyczne Medisport Lublin for their help in organising professional medical transport.

“We are happy to inform you that the operation was successful, and Dominik's prognosis looks promising. The coming weeks will be a time for him to devote to rehabilitation and recovery. Domin - you are great, and we - your team are waiting for you!”

Kubera played a pivotal role in Lublin winning the first PGE Ekstraliga title in the club’s history last season and has been widely tipped as a future Speedway GP star.

Everyone involved in FIM Speedway also sends Dominik our very best wishes for a speedy recovery.
