BIOGRAPHY

The 2016 FIM Speedway Under-21 world champion made his full-time FIM Speedway Grand Prix debut in 2020 after finishing third at the 2019 FIM GP Challenge in Gorican.

While his first season was a baptism of fire, Fricke still fought his way to a solid 10th place, claiming his first-ever win at Torun SpeedwayGP round seven to all but seal a wild card pick for 2021.

Fricke built on that opportunity by finishing eighth – making him the highest-placed Australian rider. He also took second spot at the 2021 FIM GP Challenge in Zarnovica to secure qualification for 2022.

The two-time, reigning Australian champion is making strong progress in the sport and will hope to continue that.

DID YOU KNOW? Fricke reached five semi-finals from 11 rounds in 2021 and did not finish any SpeedwayGP with less than six points.
