On Saturday at the Municipal Stadium in Rybnik we will get to know the final decisions in this year's Individual European Speedway Championship. The winner and further medalists finally will be determined and we will also find out who will stay in the Speedway Euro Championship cycle for the next year.

In fact, the fight for medals practically should be decided between five players. In a comfortable situation, Mikkel Michelsen and Piotr Pawlicki, who lead the series with 39 points, seem to be the most relaxed. Their advantage over second Leon Madsen, however, is extremely low, because it’s only two points high. This loss can be eliminated in as less as just one race, so the battle between the three promises to be very interesting.

Patryk Dudek, who loses six points to the leaders, has certainly not given up yet. If he consistently manages to win the heats, he still could get involved in the fight for final success. The same is true for Daniel Bewley, who accumulated 31 points after three finals. He still didn’t not loose his chances for any of the medals, and in exceptionally favorable circumstances, even to win the series.

Mentioning the five names before might suggest, that the fight to stay in the cycle next year is already settled. However, there are certainly a few players who have a different opinion on this subject. Among them is last year's SEC series winner, Robert Lambert, who is currently losing five points to his younger compatriot. 25 points appear next to the name of Bartosz Smektały, who after a worse round in Bydgoszcz, in the subsequent finals in Güstrow and Gdańsk did much better. Kai Huckenbeck, with 23 points, also certainly didn't say the last word yet and will try to get into the fight to stay in the series. The only rider of the local club ROW Rybnik, who competes in this year's series as a permanent participant, is Sergey Logachev. The Russian will aim to present himself in front of his own audience as best as possible and will fight for high goals. The Norwegian with Polish citizenship, Rune Holta, who competes thanks to the "wild card", has similar intentions. Other players who no longer have too much or no chance of staying in the series will try to make the most of themselves and create a spectacle worthy of the SEC 2021 grand finale.

We have only one Speedway Euro Championship tournament in front of us. The supposedly extraordinary interesting event in Rybnik will let us find out who will be the biggest winner and in addition to the title of Individual European Champion, will take the first place among the permanent participants in Speedway Grand Prix 2022. Robert Lambert enjoyed it last season. Who will repeat this success on Saturday? The answer to this question will be announced coming Saturday night, when the remaining SEC 2021 medalists and the players who will automatically qualify for next year's competition will also be determined.

The final run of the Speedway Euro Championship 2021 finale in Rybnik will be officially named as “Run of Remembrance of Silesian Insurgents”. The winner will receive a specially prepared memory cup, which will be presented during the decoration.
