Before Friday's competition there were some changes in the FOGO FIM Speedway U21 World Championship starting list. Below we present the official starting list of the one-day final of the Individual World Championships in Pardubice.
19-year-old Jan Kvech is perhaps the best Czech rider who will be taking part in the FOGO FIM U21 World Championships. But as the host nation, the country can also add three more riders to make up the field. And last week it was announced that they are Petr Chlupac, Daniel Klima and Pavel Kuchar.
As announced last week, Poland have made a late change to their representative for the FOGO FIM U21 World Championships on Friday. That’s because Lublin’s Wiktor Lampart was injured in his last match of the season. So, Czestochowa junior, Jakub Miskowiak, comes in at the 11th hour to replace him.
2020 is the year that should have seen the young American launch his European career. Having impressed in the 2019 in the US Speedway of Nations side, the Californian had the attention of clubs across the Old Continent.
On 13 April 2019, the (then) 19-year-old was involved in a severe crash in the Italian speedway league. Fans in the stadium knew it was serious when they heard the young Italian’s screams of pain. Later in the hospital, it was revealed that he had fractured his femur and would be out for a least six months.
Along with U21 rival Oleg Michailov, Marko Levyshyn signed with Lokomotiv Daugavpils in 2020. However, unlike the Latvian he has not raced in the eWinner1 League.
