Along with U21 rival Oleg Michailov, Marko Levyshyn signed with Lokomotiv Daugavpils in 2020. However, unlike the Latvian he has not raced in the eWinner1 League.
Instead, like another U21 rival, Jan Kvech, he has been riding this year in the Czech Extraliga where he goes by the name, Marko Levišin. Naturally, the league contains the best Czech riders, such as Vaclav Milik.
But the league also has many guest riders from the Polish Ekstraliga raising the standard of the league. This year that has included Jakub Jamrog, Martin Vaculik as well as British U21 representative, Daniel Bewley. So, for Levyshyn it means he has been able to compete with some of the best in the business with his team, SC Interteam Liberec.
As well as league races, the Ukrainian took part in the European U21 individual competition. Whilst the final is currently on, a number of the riders who will go head-to-head at Pardubice were able to participate in a qualifier in Divisov, Czech Republic on 1 August.
There the Liberec rider beat Wiktor Lampart in a race off to gain second, whilst Kvech was first. Whilst the FOGO FIM U21 World Championship will have a stronger field, this will give Levyshyn confidence and makes him an outside contender for a medal on 2 October.
