Greg Hancock – Still Grinning, Still Winning

Jul 072016

There’s any number of statistics you could use when talking about the career of speedway legend Greg Hancock, but none of them quite do him justice.


 You could mention the fact that he’s ridden in 195 out of 196 Speedway GP events, or that he’s not fallen out of the world top six since 2001, or perhaps even that he’s a triple world champion, but this isn’t a career that can be summarised through numbers alone.

 Greg Hancock is 46 years old and this weekend, he will take to the track in Cardiff’s Principality Stadium as the current leader of the Speedway GP series, with a lead of eight points. He is not just competing with guys half his age, he’s beating them. He is, quite simply, a sporting phenomenon.

 “I always get shocked when I hear the stats because I honestly never think about them! Some guys have targets of how many world titles they want to win or certain goals but that isn’t me, I don’t look at any of that. I just want to win every single time I get on the track. That’s all.”
