The 2017 Speedway Grand Prix Championship heads to Horsens, Denmark this weekend and World Champion Greg Hancock wants to do something he’s not done for 17 years – win a Grand Prix in Denmark!
Greg has won events all over the world but victory has eluded him in Denmark since 2000, but he heads to the CASA Arena in Horsens this weekend in fine form and feeling confident of his chances.
GH has followed up his second place in Prague two weeks ago with a string of top-scores for his league clubs, and now he finally feels back to his best and ready to put pressure on the riders at the top of the SGP standings.
It’s really going from strength to strength right now, I’m so happy with the equipment now and when it is working like this it feels great. I’m in a much better place, we’ve been testing and playing around with some new stuff over the last few weeks and now I feel like I’m right back in the hunt for the world championship again.
I really like the track in Horsens, last year I had a pretty good result there with 14 points and I just made a big mistake in the semi-final. I hit a groove and almost wiped myself out but it goes to show that it’s not over until it’s over, but I was really on the pace and had things working great. I like the place and I’m heading into it with a lot of confidence, I haven’t won a round in Denmark for a long time so I think it’s about time I put that right!
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the team with mixed results. In Sweden, Greg has inspired Piraterna to improved results but KS Torun continue to struggle in Poland – but ‘Grin’ feels like it’s only a matter of time until things turn around for Torun.
We really need a break, we just need that one win to turn our fortunes around and it feels like we’ll go on a good run. We have the ability to do much more than we’re doing, but we need to get that first big win and then we’ll get on a roll. We keep losing right at the death but we know we are way better than we’re showing right now so we’ve got to turn it around,” he said.
Just like at Piraterna, we had a tough start but now we’ve found something and we had a great win at Lejonen on Tuesday. All of the guys piled the points up and it all clicked, so we know that we need to do the same in Torun. I feel good and I’m scoring well, but we want to start winning matches and we won’t give up.”
