GREG SEGNA UN PUNTO DI SVOLTA NEL CAMPIONATO

Aug 142016

Dicono che la fortuna arriva a chi sa aspettarla, e per Greg Hancock, è valso la pena aspettare questa vittoria nel Grand Prix della sua casa adottiva, la Svezia. L’icona Americana ha provato per 35 volte a vincere nel paese che chiama casa, e alla fine l’incantesimo si è spezzato a Malilla. .

Come si può immaginare, era molto felice.

“17 punti e una vittoria in Svezia. Non devo dire altro! È stato incredibile, una di quelle vittorie che ho cercato per così tanti anni!

 

“Devo ringraziare tanto il mio team perchè i ragazzi hanno fatto un bel lavoro sulla moto.

“Qualsiasi cosa abbiano fatto, ha funzionato alla grande! Per tutto il tempo pensavo  ‘non sbagliare, non rallentare’.

“È fantastico essere al comando, c’è ancora tanta strada ma è una sensazione bellissima.”

“17 points and a win in Sweden, I don’t know if I need to say anymore! That was just unbelievable, it’s one of those wins that I’ve been hunting for so many years and there’s been so much talk about it, it goes round and round in your head and I’ve just wanted to win one!

 

“I have to give huge credit to my team because the guys were making small adjustments here and there to the bike all the time and every heat I could feel it.

 

“The last change they made to the bike was unreal, I knew that if I could make a good start I just had to put the bike in the right place and it would be mine. Whatever they did, the thing hit the ground and I just had to hold the momentum and be patient. The whole time I was thinking ‘don’t make a mistake, don’t kill your speed’ because I knew when I cut back I had such good acceleration that I wasn’t going to get passed back.

 

“It’s great to get the monkey off my back and obviously to pull a bigger lead, there’s a long way to go but it’s good to be the guy at the top.”

 

It was another solid night for Greg’s Monster Energy stablemate Chris Holder too, who moved back up to fifth in the championship after taking 12 points and fourth place.

Che sarà a Gorzow, Polonia, dove abbiamo sempre visto delle ottime gare e magari vedremo meglio chi sarà più vicino al campionato..
