FIM Team U-21 Teams Confirmed

The results are in! Great Britain will face Poland, Denmark and Australia in less than TWO weeks time in the FIM Team U21 World Championship Finals at Manchester's National Speedway Stadium.

Reigning champions Poland dominated the Latvian round in Daugavpils relatively untroubled, though their hosts kept up the pressure and came heartbreakingly close to making the cut of the finals.

Over in Vetlanda, it was Denmark who topped the leader boards with Australia and Sweden in hot pursuit. And with four more points than Latvia, Australia claim the fourth and final spot in the Finals.

Team Great Britain are represented by no less than three Belle Vue riders when they make their challenge for the FIM Team Under-21 title, with Dan Bewley, Leon Flint and Kyle Bickley all being given the nod.

And completing the team is Drew Kemp and Triple British Under-21 Champion and reigning senior British Champion Robert Lambert. GB Youth boss Neil Vatcher will lead the side as team manager.
