 By reaching for the European Championship's silver medal, Vaclav Milik followed up Ales Dryml's success from 2012. After last year's season, when Milik was adjusting to the Euro Championship meetings, this one looked way better. Secons position is a phenomenal result and a great starting point.

 It all started with a rainy inauguration in Güstrow, where Milik lost his chance for a race-off heat in his last start. During the whole round, Czech was balancing between sixth and seventh position, however "zero" in the 20th heat made "Vacek" out of the top. Eight points gathered, though, gave him a good position to fight for more in the next rounds.

Beginning of the round in Daugavpils heralded nothing good. After three starts, Milik was in the second, lower part of the table with only 3 points. However, he won next two heats and with this last-minute call, he jumped straight into the race-off heat. There, he had to accept the superiority of Grigorij Laguta, Emil Sayfutdinov and Przemysław Pawlicki.

At the half of the series, Milik had 17 points. What's more, it was only one point away from the leaders - Sayfutdinov and Pawlicki.
In Togliatti, Milik had been racing really well and got promoted to the race-off heat without bigger problems. There, a controversy occured. While fighting for their positions, Vaclav Milik clashed with Nicki Pedersen. After seeing Czech coming, Dane jumped out of his bike and fell on the track. Referee watched the replay few times, but after all, decided that it's Czech, who is guilty. Milik grabbed the phone immidiately and started talking with ref, however it did not change anything. Metting was over for Milik.

Nevertheless, 10 points reached let Milik still be in top and preserve his chances for a good final result. That's exactly what happened. Frankly speaking, Vaclav Milik junior had a lot of luck in Rybnik. He made the last-minute call of reaching the top only after overtaking Przemysław Pawlicki in heat no. 20. He coped great in the race-off heat and advanced to the final from 2nd position. In the final, he took advantage of Kasprzak fighting with Sayfutdinov and once again, he ended as second. Final effect? Same amount of points as Kasprzak and an additional heat. There were no doubts in it. Czech jumped from the start quickly and safely brought three points, which gave him his dreamed-of medal of the European Championship 2016.
