 Before final SEC 2017 round, we ask our expert Jacek Frątczak, who is always optimist for Poles, to reveal his thoughts. He believes that huge emotions will come.

 After three SEC rounds, Andrzejs Lebedevs is on the top of the GC and has 4 points advantage over Vaclav Milik. Behind Betard Sparta Wrocław riders, Artiom Laguta and Andreas Jonsson are fighting for points. We have to look for the best candidate for gold among them.

- It seems like we have four or five riders who can fight for the gold. Although Krzysztof Kasprzak hasn’t a lot of chances to chase his rivals, because he is 12 points away, I guess he still can think about any other medal. I’m pretty sure that Artiom Laguta is going to be attacker of the day. Also Andreas Jonsson's position could be endangered. We have to remind you that Swede scored a lot of his points in his hometown. In Poland he’s riding a lot worse. Of course it could be different this time and I wish him a good performance, but we have to be realistic. For that moment, compared to Laguta, he looks worse – commented Frątczak – SEC shows that 5 leaders group decided about tournament. In Lublin could be the same – he added.

Positions 5-7 are occupied by Poles – Krzysztof Kasprzak, Mateusz Szczepaniak and Przemysław Pawlicki. The gap between them is only 3 points, so their battle for maintenance is going to be interesting. Jacek Frątczak has his favourite.

- It seems like Przemysław Pawlicki could fight for the victory in last SEC round. I think he fixed his problems with bikes and is going to be a favourite in Lublin. Also I think he won’t fight for the podium, because he wasted too many points in previous competitions – said Frątczak.

Andriej Lebedev has a chance to make historic result. Latvian is GC leader, but in last few weeks his form went down – It’s a similar situation to Przemysław Pawlicki’s case. The most important question is that if Lebedev will make more good results this year. Some time ago, Lebedev had pretty nice moments, back in the day when he was Betard Sparta Wrocław leader, but now he has little crisis. I think that he has some problems with bikes. Today, changes are coming very fast, so maybe he needs only one good service. He feels that he has a chance. That can give him more power – said our expert.
