During each speedway event in Bydgoszcz, fans can expect lots of action and what is the most important - speedway at the highest world level.

Sweden’s Alexander Woentin made his way to the U21 World Championships when he came fifth in the qualifying race in Güstrow. He won four out of his five heats and had he scored two or three in his fourth run instead of zero, he would have won the competition ahead of Poland’s Jakub Miskowiak. Instead, the Czestochowa rider came first followed by Mads Hansen (DEN), Jonas Seifert-Salk (DEN), Jan Kvech (CZE) and behind Woentin in the final qualifying slot was Steven Goret (FRA).
At just 20-year-old, Australian, Max Fricke won the U21 World Championships. Like this year, it was a three-round competition with Kings Lynn, Pardubice and Gdansk as the venues. Although the Australian did not win any of the rounds, three podium finishes gave him overall victory, “it is definitely one of the highlights of my career!” he says with a smile.
