Just read that the FIM has changed the format of the U21 Junior World Team Championship, which is replaced by the U21 Junior Speedway of Nations this year.

It will be the same format as the senior SoN with seven pairs' teams of two riders, plus one reserve, instead of the previous four-team meetings. There are no qualifying rounds or semi-finals scheduled for 2021, only the final to be held in Poland on September 24, 2021.

Thanks for the info- that date is the day before the 2nd round of the World U 21 individual championships in Krosno. A decent weekend of U 21 action in prospect.

Onesport  have taken over as promoters for this event in 2021- which is good news as that should mean that it will be televised live(probably Eurosport)

FIM press release:

"Bydgoszcz to host the FIM Team Speedway U21 World Championship on 27 August 2021

For the 5th time in Poland but the first time in its history, Bydgoszcz will stage the FIM Team Speedway U21 World Championship and welcome the world’s best U21 national speedway teams on 27 August 2021.

Thanks to the recent dynamic growing development of speedway sport in Bydgoszcz, the local speedway club has been given another opportunity to organize an international championship event.

"Another big, international speedway event is taking place in Bydgoszcz. Our city appears in the FIM Speedway calendar again. The track in Bydgoszcz has proved repeatedly, that it is a place, where you can experience spectacular races. I strongly believe that this time it also won’t disappoint the fans”, said Jerzy Kanclerz.

After the situation faced in 2020 (some teams could not travel because of the COVID-19 restrictions), the FIM Track Tacing Commission has decided to change the format of 2021 version with 7 Teams composed by 2 programmed and 1 substitute Riders.

From the very beginning, the FIM Team Speedway U21 World Championship was dominated by Polish Team, who won 13 out of 16 gold medals so far, with 7 victories in a row. But the last years were more challenging with the Danish and British young guns making troubles in the Polish’s road to gold.

The team world championship is a perfect chance for young riders to challenge and present their skills in front of a broad audience. It is also an important test for future members of the respective senior national speedway teams. For many years the FIM consistently develops projects, which support the growth and competition of Youth riders."

I know thats a joke, but still say it cant be.

Anyway, now that covid vaccination is progressing in the UK, what odds for the  U21 quali to be ridden at all in the UK June 12th?

It is around a football pitch. Quite big, but not too exciting racing. Maybe I have seen the wrong meetings same as at Teterow because some times when I am not there they say it was a good meeting :D but never really get a good crowd

I'm feeling more optimistic now, but travel restrictions must still be a worry.

Seems also to be worrying developments in Sweden and even in Germany things have stagnated. Looking at Poland and Czecho it also could be going wrong again.....
