Speedway: Junior world champion – Maksym Drabik has lost his enthusiasm for speedway

Ultimately, the guests won and on Sunday they will start the semi-final competition with Moje Bermuda Stalą Gorzów. For a long time, however, the result of the duel oscillated around a draw.

Coach Dariusz Śledź explained the reason for the absence of one of his leaders in his pre-match statement for Eleven Sports 1. He stated that the athlete was sick. The real cause, however, is different. It turns out that the 22-year-old speedway rider has lost all his enthusiasm for racing.

Drabik is heavily depressed with his away form this year, and above all with the specter of disqualification for breaking the anti-doping procedure (before last year’s final match with Fogo Unia, Leszno received a vitamin infusion with a volume 5 times larger than the legal standard). On Sunday, the director of POLADA, Michał Rynkowski said on nSport + that in his opinion, the player should not be entitled to medical exclusion and would face a two-year disqualification. On October 7, the case of the rider is to be dealt with by the Arbitration Tribunal at PKOL, if it does not accept the arguments of the competitor’s lawyers, it may happen that the Polish Anti-Doping Agency will prohibit him from practicing speedway until 2023!

This awareness frustrates Drabik, who did not finish the previous match of Betard Sparta in Grudziądz. After two races he shouted to the training staff that he had enough slag and locked himself in the bus.

The Wrocław club should immediately take steps to provide psychological support to this player, because the subsequent incoming signals are more and more disturbing. According to many experts, Drabik is a talent that appears in this sport once in a quarter of a century and it would be terrible if he gave up at such a young age. For us, there is nothing else than to write: Take care, Maksym!
