 It’s this Friday (29th of September), when in Pardubice, final round of this year’s Individual Speedway Junior World Championship will be held. Before we’ll meet the final answers, let’s take a closer look at the all time classification of this series.

 First tournaments giving the name of world’s best junior took place between 1977 and 1987 as Individual Speedway Junior European Championship. What’s interesting, until 1980 it were only riders under 23 y.o. and from 1981 only riders under 21 can start.

First rider, who became world’s best junior was Dane - Alf Busk, who won a rainy final in Vojens, ended after 9 heats. In the same tournament, legendary Hans Nielsen was ranked in 5th position. Top Pole in this meeting was Mariusz Okoniewski (8th).

1979 brought gold to first best junior outside Europe and it was American rider - Ron Preston, who jumped on podium’s top in Russian Leningard. 1987 season was an important date for Polish speedway. Back then, in Zielona Góra, Piotr Świst got silver medal.

In 1988, tournament of reaching world’s best junior title, was officially named as Individual Speedway Junior World Championship. First rider, who could be called that way was Peter Nahlin (Sweden), thanks to his win in Slany. 1996 brought first gold medal for Poland - Piotr Protasiewicz won the tournament in Olching, defeating riders like Ryan Sullivan or Jesper B.Monberg.

Darcy Ward leads the all-time classification - Australian got three medals, including two golds in 2009 and 2010. Ward and Emil Sayfutdinov (Russia) are the only riders, who won gold twice in a row. Russian made it in 2007 and 2008. Top classified Pole (2nd overall in all-time classification) is Maciej Janowski - 3 medals, 1 gold, 2 silver.

Poland leads the all-time classification of nations. Poles got 27 medals, 11 gold. Great Britain is second - 20 medals, 5 gold and Denmark third - 19 medals, 7 gold.
