Thanks to his effective tackle at the last meters of the final heat in Daugavpils, Bartosz Smektała jumped on a podium of the first round of FIM Speedway U21 World Championship. Next round is going to be held in Leszno, which is Smektała's home track.

Before the inauguration of Individual Speedway Junior World Championship, Smektała was seen as one of the main rivals of Maksym Drabik on the path to the title. After silver medal reached one year ago, Polish rider has got one goal - gold. Pole started this year's rivalry in a very good way - 17 points reached in Daugavpils puts him on a high position ahead of the next two rounds.

- It was a good meeting for me. Before this round, my aim was to gather as many points as possible. Naturally, I wanted to win, but made some mistakes, which I have to go analyze now and correct the things that didn't work well.

Second round of the series is going to be held in Leszno - venue, where Smektała simply feels great. Home track of the junior vice-champion of the world makes "Smyk" the main candidate to grab the win in Leszno.

- There's still the same goal ahead of me. I want to be the Individual Speedway Junior World Champion. Next round is at my home track in Leszno, but that means absolutely nothing. Every day is different and you always have to be prepared. If I will take it with calmness, nothing bad should happen in Leszno - Smektała ended.
