Share on:

Brady Kurtz had a spectacular performance in the second round of FIM Speedway U-21 World Championship 2017, which took place in Güstrow. Thanks to 18 points he gathered, Australian climbed into 4th position overall.

After the first round, which was taken in Poznań, "BK" was far in the overall classification and his poor performance was caused by an injury caught in the Polish Nice 1st League match.

- Everyone knows I wasn't fully recovered in Poznań. Tough track didn't help me in that as well. Now, it was all fine and everyone could see what I'm able to - Kurtz said.

In Güstrow, Brady Kurtz had the best result among all riders and most of his heats were won with an impressive advantage. Kurtz won 5 of his heats.

- I started on this track many times and I do like it. Tough conditions also suit me. I'm happy with my score - Australian added.

Final round of the Eko-Dir FIM Speedway U-21 World Championship will be taken in Pardubice. For Kurtz, it's a great info, because Australian has been usally getting good scores there. Kurtz is still in the game for a medal position and currently loses only 4 points to Max Fricke, who's third.

- Pardubice is another track, which gives me lots of joy. I've had many points there. My goal is to get another 18 points - Brady Kurtz ended.

Final round of Eko-Dir FIM Speedway U-21 World Championship 2017 will be held in Pardubice, 29th of September, 7 PM CET.
