Swedish rider, Joel Kling will once again replace injured Gleb Chugunov in the rivalry of Individual Speedway Junior World Championship. Just to remind - second final of this series is taking place on 22nd of July in Leszno.
Joel Kling has already had a chance to present before the wide audience during the inaugural round in Daugavpils (Latvia). While taking advantage of Russian's bad luck, Kling went to Latvia without any mental burden and got 6 points.
- It's never fun when a rider gets hurt, but I can't think of it now either. I have to go in full focus in the competition, that's it. Six points are okay - there were some great riders in Daugavpils, so I think I did a good job - Joel Kling says.
Swede left behind riders like Daniel Bewley or Andreas Lyager and now, he's getting an opportunity to improve his results in Leszno. His faith in reaching the semi-final is strong, however he does realize that it's not gonna be an easy way to do it.
- You must make good results to get contracts in other countries. It won't be easy, but I want to show people I can actually race well - Kling ended.
Meeting in Leszno starts at 6:45 PM CET. For those who won't be able to attend the stands of Alfred Smoczyk stadium, we have some good news. Live broadcast will be availaible on YouTube.
