Kubera: I think I can win

Share on:

Polish rider, Dominik Kubera, is already well known in the speedway world, despite the fact that he is still counted as a junior. He will race in his last FOGO FIM Speedway U21 World Championship in October.

He is part of the FOGO UNIA Leszno team that raced against PGG ROW Rybnik and so is currently in quarantine after a member of staff at the venue tested positive for COVID-19 at their Ekstraliga match. He thinks it is the right decision to postpone the TAURON SEC Round in Gniezno where his teammate, Bartosz Smektala is competing, “this year the tournament is extremely interesting. I am happy they can wait and put on another competition next week,” he reflects.

Looking to the future, Kubera would like to be part of TAURON SEC himself, “I would like to race in the championship because it's a great competition where you can get a lot of experience,” he says.

But this year the 22-year-old will get race in his fourth FOGO FIM U21 World Championship in a row. Each year his he has got better results each year – 12th, 4th and then 3rd in 2019.

“Last year was a tough competition, but this year I think I can win,” he says confidently. In 2019 Kubera won in the first round of the competition at Güstrow, Germany but had a bad night at Pardubice and finished in 8th place, “I don’t like to ride in Pardubice,” he admits,” but I will give in 100% to win”.

On his first ever appearance in the U21 competition in 2017, he came 15th at Pardubice. But if Kubera can repeat his performance on the track from 2018 he could pick up the Gold Medal on 4 October. He came third that night and the two above him, Robert Lambert and Smektala, are too old to compete in the U21 championship this year.

Kubera and Wiktor Lampart are the only representatives from Poland in the competition this year. Will one of them be able to make it four wins in a row for the speedway-obsessed nation?
