 Lukas Fienhage will be 21 years old when he races in Pardubice in October. It will be his second and final FOGO FIM U21 World Championship as he competed in the series in 2017. Three years ago, the German rider had his best results in the final round at Pardubice. That night he won his first two heats beating rivals Dominik Kubera and Alexander Woentin, who he will face again this year.

“I showed some good speed that night,” he says, “and it is one my favourite tracks. So, I am hoping for a medal this year”.

This time round Germany will be represented a much more experienced and well-rounded rider. That is partly down to the fact that in 2020 he has been riding in eWinner2 League with German team, Wolfe Wittstock. Despite his youth, he is the best rider at the club this season, with 1.824 heat average and that puts him at 14th in the individual standings.

Fienhage will also be bringing experience from a Speedway of Nations performance and a triple German win in 2019. “I was German U21 champion, Pairs champion and League champion with Brokstedt last year,” he reminds us.

In the SoN final in Togliatti, Russia he was part of the German national team alongside Erik Riss and Kai Huckenbeck. And in the very last heat of the night for the Germans, he was called in to race against no less than the Polish paring of Patryk Dudek and Bartosz Zmarzlik who would go on to claim Silver on the night.

So, the young German knows what it is like to compete against the best at the highest level. All that remains now is for him to turn that experience into real medal winning reality on 2nd October.
