The Polish quintet have become the team to beat in the FIM Team Speedway Under 21 World Championship category and this year’s victory marked a fantastic thirteenth time they have triumphed over the best young riders in the World.
The showdown took place in Outrup, Denmark, at the start of September and was fought out over twenty fiercely contested legs, but Poland’s title defence got off to a shaky start when Norbert Krakowiak fell in the first heat and took no further part in the event.
However, his four remaining team-mates rose to the occasion with Dominik Kubera – who less than a month later would place second in the individual FIM Speedway Under 21 World Championship – emerging as Poland’s top scorer to help his country to a four-point win over the host nation with Great Britain a further ten points off the pace in third.
Top individual performer was Daniel Bewley from Great Britain who, aided by the double points on offer for playing his team’s Joker, scored a total of seventeen that was three points better than Kubera and four more than Wiktor Lampart and dashing Dane Tim Sorensen.
Out of its five-man squad, two riders – Lampart and Kubera – had already tasted victory with the team with Lampart part of the winning line-up in 2019 and 2018 and Kubera taking gold in 2019 and 2017.
