September is here and that means there is just less than one month to go until the FOGO FIM U21 World Championships. The competition brings together the best juniors from across the world in Pardubice. But not every country has been able to have pro-racing this year. For example, in the UK all leagues were cancelled. However, a number of the U21 riders have been in action in the Polish and Swedish leagues.
