19-year-old Oleg Mihailov is a huge hope for Latvian speedway. Lokomotiv Daugavpils’ rider started in one round of U21 World Championships 2018 and made a really good result. On his hometrack he scored 12 points. Young Latvian came to the top of world’s juniors very fast.

- I’m really happy with my score in Daugavpils. It’s always fantastic to ride well for your fans. Unfortunately in grand final I was too nervous and I made some stupid mistakes. Despite that, I’m really happy with my performance – said Mihailov.

Latvian is coming to next season with a lot of hopes. He still has 2 years as a junior, so he wants to make first individual succeses.

- Considering my next year, I want to pass all elimination rounds and take part in U21 Worlds, because I can be in top 5. I think that’s real – he said.

Mihailov had a very good season in Polish league, too. Thanks to regular starts, he took an important experience, which he did not have since now. Is he afraid of riding somwhere else than Daugavpils?

- It’s always good to ride on your hometrack, where everybody tries to help you. You know that track, so it’s easier to find right setups. But of course I rode some away meetings and I’ve learned a lot. My team is doing fantastic job every time. I think it will work on foreign tracks and I will able to fight.

Latvian’s good results are nice to see for a lot of people, because local speedway needs another icon. Laguta brothers are now in world’s top, and Andrzej Lebiediew is coming to them. Latvian speedway needs another rider, who will be a star in Daugavpils. It seems that Mihailov made everything to start his fantastic speedway career. For now, a lot of people are trying to help him, including Maksims Bogdanovs.

Round in Pardubice saved my season

2018 season was first for Robert Chmiel in U21 FIM Speedway World Championships cycle. Young rider from Rybnik had a pretty good reasult – he finished 9th with 11 points. It’s important to remember, that beginning wasn’t as good as final score. In Daugavpils, Pole scored only 1 point. Also in Leszno it was only a little bit better, because ROW Rybnik rider finished competition with 4 points. Now he’s explaining, that in Latvia he had some bad luck.
