British U21 Semi-Final draws confirmed

The Young Lions are delighted to announce the rider line ups for the two British Under 21 Semi-Finals which take place at Mildenhall on Sunday 6th June (3pm) and Newcastle on Sunday 13th June (4pm)

The top six riders from each semi-final qualify, joining the top 4 eligible riders from the 2020 British Under 21 Final, Leon Flint, Anders Rowe, Drew Kemp and Tom Brennan, who have been seeded direct to the 2021 final.

Young Lions boss Neil Vatcher commented: “Our appreciation to the promotions of both clubs as we appreciate with a shorten season, it was not easy to find available dates.

Both line ups look extremely competitive, with a mix of some of the bigger names in the Under 21 group along with some of the younger boys, who are making their debuts in this competition in 2021.

It is also great we have two qualifiers, one in the North and one in the South East, which will give supporters from many different tracks the opportunity to come and support the young British riders, and from experience, both will be very exciting and tense meetings as all 16 riders in each event will be chasing a top 6 finish.”
