 Alexander Woentin couldn’t be glad after first round in Poznań. The youngest rider in cycle scored only 3 points and finished on 16th position.

 In first two races, one and only Swede in World U-21 Championship had a lot of bad luck. In first series his bike malfunctioned. In second one, Woentin fell and thankfully he wasn't injured, but he did not leave the track, so he was excluded. In next heats Swede scored 3 points beating Eduard Krcmar, Rafał Karczmarz and Lukas Fienhage.

- That’s a fact that it could be better. To be honest, I like long tracks like that one in Poznań, but I had some problems with surface, which was very demanding after huge rain – said Alexander Woentin.

Next EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U-21 World Championship round will take place at September 8th in Gustrow. How is Woentin preparing himself to ride in Germany?

- I hadn’t any ocasion to ride in Gustrow, but I know, that track there is completely different from that one in Poznań. I’m going to do everything to improve my results – finished Swede.
