Robert Lambert: I ride my heart out

Share on:

 In Gdańsk, it did not go too well for him. Seven points didn't give promotion to the semi-final and Robert Lambert could only count on a weaker performance by Jack Holder and other rivals. That's what happened and an opportunity appeared to race in the additional heat for bronze... which he won!

 - Yeah it was really tough I didn't think I would be able to get on the podium after my second last. I wanted to get changed, then they told me there might be a race off. I didn't know it's gonna be about third place, but when they told me I had all the ambition with me and due to my last ride where I got a win I was thinking positive and I ride my heart out. Such a good feeling to be on the podium in my first year I took place in the competition - says Robert Lambert.

Third place is definitely a good result, but ahead of Lambert there are next seasons coming. Does Brit dream about the gold?
- I would like to be on the podium again, but I aim the top of course.

 In the pits, Lambert has been supported by his girlfriend. Was she one of the Brit's authors of success? - Yes, she was a very big help to keep me calm and focused on the meeting. She's been to nearly every important meeting this season and place a big part in my racing to keep me focused throughout the meeting and is a big help off track with organisations and fitness throughout the winter.

Bronze medalist underlines also a great organization of the tournament. - I think the organisation is great with One Sport. They really look after the riders and want what's best for speedway not just trying to earn money. I like that people can watch the Under 21 Championship on the internet or even Eurosport and to I think it's a really good promotion as well for speedway.
