It was a mixed weekend for Speedway World Champion Greg Hancock as he missed out on the semi-final’s in the Danish Grand Prix but charged to paid-15 for Torun on Sunday.
GH got off to a flying start in Horsens with a dominant win in his first race but he ran a last in the next race, and then two third places meant that he needed to win his final heat to qualify for the semi-final’s.
He made a great start but Russian racer Emil Sayfutdinov found some speed and dived underneath, and despite getting closer and closer with each lap Greg was unable to overtake him and had to settle with seven points on the night.
It was a disappointing result but Greg is still in the Championship hunt with seven rounds still to race and he headed straight to Poland for KS Torun’s home match with Wroclaw.
It’s been a difficult spell for Torun and it continued as they went down 49-41, but it was a good night personally for Greg, who scored 14+1.
It was a frustrating night in Horsens really, I started off well with a win in my first heat and then after that I struggled a bit and couldn’t get things going. The track was difficult to read and I couldn’t get in front in the first turn and that made life hard, so I’m disappointed.
In my last ride I made a good start but then Emil found something up the inside and even though I felt pretty quick I just couldn’t make up the ground and that was my night over. There’s still a long, long way to go and we’ll keep chasing, it’ll be nice to have a break now and we’ll come back ready and raring to go for Cardiff.
