 Max Fricke was ranked in 5th position at the second round of EKO-DIR Fim Speedway U21 World Championship, which was held in German Güstrow.

 Title's defender - Max Fricke is currently third in the overall classification with a 3-point loss to the leader - Maksym Drabik. Fricke had a good performance on this tough, technical track in Güstrow. In 5 heats, he was finishing as first three times and was second twice. In the semi-final , rider from Mansfield had a goot start, but made a mistake at the second corner, which made him fall.

- I'm happy with my performance. Everything had been going according to plan, until this unfortunate semi. I had a good start, but at the second corner, something bumped me up and I fell. It happens. Never though, I'm satisfied with my achievements, because like few weeks ago, my season was over. I'm glad I could be back so quickly.

Start in Güstrow was one of the first ones after his injury. During Elitserien's match, Fricke took part in crash, which damaged his neck braces.

- When I wake up in the morning, I feel that not everything's fine. I still feel this injury, so I'm even more happy with this result I got here. I came to Güstrow with plan, which I was able to fill. For the last month, I had to take a break from speedway, but I did everything to make it here in Germany. I did it, so I'm happy with my score - current U21 World Champion added.

Final round of EKO-DIR FIM Speedwya U21 World Championship 2017 will be taken in Pardubice. Currently, Max Fricke is third overall with a 3-point loss to the leader - Maksym Drabik and has a 4-point advantage over 4th Brady Kurtz and Robert Lambert.
- I'm still in the game to win it. Three points is not a lot. I'll do my best to achieve the best possible result - Fricke ended.
