The International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) has published the calendar for this year's FIM Speedway U21 World Championship, where the best youth riders in the World will compete in a three-round series.

Due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and local restrictions in 2020, only a one-day final of the Championship was able to be held in Pardubice, Czech Republic. It was Jaimon Lidsey from Australia who was the winner of this event and the title.

- Pardubice is a very special place for me. Every time I’ve been there I’ve done quite well and I love the track there. Big, fast so suits me very well. To become u21 World Champion there was amazing, it was a dream come true. I really mean that as I dreamt of this meeting many of times leading up to it and thought about it so much. Too much. I put a lot of pressure on myself for the meeting because I knew I had to do well for myself and my family. It was definitely a goal to be u21 World Champion and last year was my final year to do it so I’m very happy. It’s still hard to believe – said Lidsey.

In 2021, the series will return to its traditional format with three finals in three different countries. The first final will be held in Stralsund - Germany on 4th September, followed by Krosno - Poland on 25th September, with Pardubice - Czech Republic on 1st October bringing the championship to a close.

The FIM Speedway U21 World Championship finals will be preceded by three qualifying rounds, which will be held on 12 June in Manchester – Great Britain, Riga – Latvia and Güstrow - Germany.

Armando Castagna, FIM Track Racing Director: "I am very happy to see the full championship back again. 2020 has been a tough year for everyone on the professional, private and sporting sides, but the FIM, One Sport and our organisers are ready to make 2021 happen in the best possible way."
