PETERBOROUGH’S Ryan Fisher was the hero as the United States booked their place in Event 2 of the Speedway World Cup at King’s Lynn after triumphing in the qualifier in Miskolc on Monday.

Fisher top-scored on 14 as USA won the meeting in the absence of SGP star Greg Hancock on 38 points. They finished six clear of hosts Hungary who bagged 32, with Italy third on 31 and France fourth on 20.

The Readypower Panther was backed by Wolverhampton’s Ricky Wells who scored 12, with former Coventry rider Billy Janniro and Gino Manzares contributing six apiece.

A delighted Fisher said afterwards: “The guys did a fantastic job today but we know from last year’s experience in Poland it will be even tougher against the established countries.
