Robert Lambert is one of the unluckiest riders of the first round of EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U21 World Championship, which took place in Poznań. British rider started this round from three wins, however his fall in heat no.5 got him injured, which made him be unable to race effectively in latter heats.

First three heats was Lambert's masterpiece. "Ruthless" was going strong from under the tape, thanks to which at the first corner, he was out of others' range. Unfortunately, in heat no.5, British rider took part in a crash caused by Kacper Woryna. Lambert was complaining on wrists' pain, which made him hard to race later on and at the end of the day, he ended the meeting ranked in 7th position with 9 points gathered.

- I had a good start, got three wins, but after my crash and a longer break, my hand started to hurt and that was not comfortable. I am 12 points back, but everything can happen in two more rounds, I'll fight back - Lambert said.

EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U21 World Championship is moving to German Güstrow, where on September 8th, on this technical track, riders will fight for points in the second round of the series. What are Lambert's predictions before this meeting?

- I rode in Güstrow like last year, twice and I think its length doesn't matter for me, I like racing on every track.

Second round of EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U21 World Championship will take place in Güstrow on September 8th. Tickets are available here: www.bit.ly/Gustrow
