Len Silver signed Zenon Plech in 1975. Appeared
in 7 World Finals, finishing runner-up to Ivan Mauger by a point
in 1979 and 3rd in 1973, again by a point, with Jerzy Szczakiel
beating Ivan Mauger (again) in a run-off.
Heat leader with Bo Petersen at Hackney. Performed
better in front of big crowds and when the pressure was on and
on his day could beat any rider in the world. One of the Hackney
greats, wearing the No.3 jacket.
Len Silver once considered adopting Zenon to
enable him to ride in the UK !
