 We had three Brits in the last edition of FIM Speedway U21 World Championship. Robert Lambert took the highest position ending at third after defeating Jack Holder in the additional heat. Josh Bates was 10th and Adam Ellis 12th.

 - It wasn't the best result for me - said Ellis. The first round in King's Lynn I had a broken collarbone which made it difficult to start with. And after that I had engine problems in the second round. It's a shame but I'm looking forward to doing better in 2017. I had a good season in England but it didn't show with my U21 results. In first two rounds - King's Lynn and Pardubice, Adam Ellis got 5 points. It went slightly better in Gdańsk, where he ended with 7 points. However in the Elite League, he got 200 points and was an important part of his team.

In 2015, Great Britain was represented only by Stefan Nielsen, however there were even finals without GB riders. The last time Great Britain had three representatives in Junior Championship Final was in 2008. Back then, Lewis Bridger got the most of it (10th position). However, Tai Woffinden was... 15th. - Having 3 riders in the U21 was great for British speedway. The level is getting better but I still think there is a lot of work to do. Neil Vatcher and Alun Rossiter are working hard with the BSPA to improve the young talent and it's starting to pay off.

In the team rivalry, Great Britain didn't manage to go through to the final tournament. In the semi-final, taken in Holsted, Brits got the third position losing 8 points to second Australia. Line up was lacking of injured Adam Ellis. - GB raced in the U21 Team Championship but unfortunately we had some injuries, it was a weaker team in Denmark for the semi final but they still put up a good fight. Hopefully next year there won't be any injuries and we can get a better result.

This year's Championship starts in Swindon, which should give that extra boost to the British riders to fight for the finals. 19 y.o. Ellis is keeping his calm though. -

I haven't set many goals for 2017, I'm just going to carry on enjoying racing and hopefully get some good scores - ended Ellis, who will have his chance to make a debut in the Polish league this season.
