 In King's Lynn, he didn't have a good performance, however during the round in Pardubice and Gdańsk, he showed the ability to face the world's best riders in his age category.

 He was even close to the bronze medal, but overcharged and got excluded, which ultimately ended his medal dreams.
- Before the meeting started, I knew it would be hard. But I decided to go out and just have some fun. And that ended up pretty good and put me really close to bronze! But I knew I needed 2 points in the final for a run off or 3 points for bronze. But I was 3rd, and couldn't quite get the speed I had in the semi. I tried pass on the inside, but didn't go as I hoped - said Patrick Hansen.

- King's Lynn was a bit tricky track for me. I felt a lot of pressure for my own side, because this was my first u21 final. Anyway, I think that was awesome! I also got bad days, and I think there's still long way to go. My starts definitely have to be improved. Does he agree with the opinion that Max Fricke fully deserved to get the world champion title?

-I think Fricke deserved the win, he has done great all year
