Maksym Drabik became the silver medalist of FIM Speedway U21 World Championship 2018. In the final round of the series, held in Pardubice, Polish rider got 13 points and ended the meeting as fourth.

After two rounds - in Daugavpils and Leszno, where Drabik "lost" only one point, not many had predicted that "Torres" would've lost the world champion title. In Pardubice however, Pole had issues with adjusting to the track from the very first heat. Nevertheless, he managed to go through to the final heat of the night. Ahead of the final clash of this year's series, Drabik had only one point more than Bartosz Smektała. Title's defender was fourth and Smektała first, which meant that it will be "Smyk" wearing the world's best junior crown.

- In Pardubice, it wasn't easy at all. Track was changing and we tried to follow. I didn't make it to defend the title, but that's just sport. I feel a little unsatisfied, because we were really close - Drabik said.

For Maksym Drabik, silver medal of Individual Speedway Junior World Championship is another reached in this season. This year, Polish rider added gold in Team Junior World Championship and bronze in Team Polish Championship.

- Every medal, every achievement makes me happy, even more when it's backed up with a really hard work. Each person from my team has made a great work. This season was very attractive and tough at some times. It got us involved fully, so now there's time to relax and after that, we will start thinking about next year - Drabik ended.
