Adam Skórnicki (born 22 October 1976 in Wolsztyn, Poland) is a Polish motorcycle speedway rider who was the 2008 Individual Polish Champion and a former Polish Under-21 international.[1] He rides for the Wolverhampton Wolves in the British Elite League.

Career[edit]

Skórnicki's first British club was Wolverhampton, whom he signed for in 2000. He had four successful years there, scoring over 1000 points for the club and winning the Elite League Championship in 2002. He was loaned out to Lakeside, Oxford and Belle Vue for the next three seasons, all of whom struggled at the bottom of the Elite League table. In 2002 Skórnicki made a guest appearance for the Poole Pirates in two legs of the Craven Shield Final.[2] Skórnicki signed for Poole on loan in 2008 and went on to win the 2008 Elite League championship with the club.[3] In August 2008, Skórnicki became the Individual Polish Champion for the first time with a 15-point maximum score.

For the 2009 season, Skórnicki has returned to his parent club the Wolverhampton Wolves in the UK. He has also changed clubs in Poland and Sweden, to Gdańsk and Vargarna respectively.
