Speedway World Champion Greg Hancock has withdrawn from this weekend’s Swedish Speedway Grand Prix as his shoulder injury needs more time to heal.
Greg dislocated his shoulder three times over the weekend of the British Grand Prix three weeks ago and has worked extensively since to make it stable enough to compete this weekend, but after practising at his track at home on Wednesday he has decided to rest it further.
The shoulder just doesn’t feel stable enough for me to feel comfortable with any situation on the track. You need to know that you can handle anything that a GP throws at you and I don’t know that yet, it’s not strong enough.
I am devastated to have to miss only my second Grand Prix in 210 but I know it’s the right decision, I have to listen to my body for once and I don’t want to make anything worse. The plan is to continue with therapy and trying to stabilise the shoulder and come back for the next round.
Thank you for all of the support and all the great messages I’ve received, it means a lot and now I just can’t wait to get back racing again.”
