It's their second year in a row, when riders of Monster Energy Speedway Team got the third position in the first round of Speedway Best Pairs. Greg Hancock came back and got 8 points at Motoarena.
Fans, who have been waiting for Hancock's comeback, had to be patient, because American's latest start was in August 2017. At Motoarena, "Grin" looked great and as as he says, injury is a history now.
- Today was the first real test of racing, I've been practising quite a bit in the USA and on the mini track in Toruń and everything was good, but you never know, what can you get on the race track. When you are in race mode, your body is different than always and for me, I felt great. I didn't have any issues.I believe I'm back in bussines.
Many fans wondered whether Greg Hancock would be back in speedway. Once again, American rider has proved that age is just a number.
- Of course it is, it has to be, right? I will never be younger, but age doesn't mean anything, I still have a fire. The biggest thing is that i have this passion to win.
Monster Energy Speedway Team was third in the inaugural round of Speedway Best Pairs, which was held in Toruń. Crew managed by Joe Parsons, were defeated surprisingly by Trans MF Pro Race Team, led by Leon Madsen.
- We still have two round to go, Fogo is good, Hampel and Sayfutdinov are very strong guys, but there are some though teams out there, and some good tracks to fight.
Second round of Speedway Best Pairs will be held in Rzeszów. Few years back, Greg Hancock represented club from this city - Stal Rzeszów, and now he's back there.
- Well, i rode for this team few years back, I'm quite familiar with this race track. Reszów is a place that I really enjoy. They didn't finish as good as they should have. I've got a chance to come back there, and help them back to the Ekstraliga with a a couple of years, so for me it should be fun. I hope that the second round of Speedway Best Pairs is gonna be more successful.
Second round in Rzeszów is planned on April 20 (start: 8PM Cet)
