During the press conference, which was held in Poznań, "wild cards" for this year's EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U-21 World Championship were given. One of them was received by current world champion - Max Fricke from Australia.

Rider from Mansfield couldn't get through to the finals in one of the semis, which took place in Terenzano. However, thanks to receiving a spot among the world's best, Australian has still got chances to join Emil Sayfutdinov and Darcy Ward, who got this title twice.

Next two spots were secured for Patrick Hansen (Denmark) and Alexander Woentin (Sweden).


Hansen started in the semi-final in Pardubice, where he showed some good racing. If it wasn't for his engine's failure, he would have probably been in the TOP 4 of the Czech meeting.


Alexander Woentin was racing in Teranzano. Fans gathered at Pista Olimpia watched some very interesting racing and of the most spectacular riders of the evening was Swede.
