American legend Greg Hancock says the settled life with Dackarna is bringing out the best in the Malilla men.

While the Californian is searching for a new club in Poland following the closure of First Division club Rzeszow due to financial troubles, things couldn’t be running more smoothly for him in Sweden.

I love riding in Sweden. I love being involved in Dackarna. They have been a really great club and those are the kind of things that motivate you constantly.

Greg Hancock

Hancock is back with Dackarna after leading the club into the Elitserien play-off final last summer, before losing out against Smederna.

The club is still searching for its first league title since 2007. But it’s clear Grin is enjoying life at the G&B Arena, where he joins forces with FIM Speedway Grand Prix rivals Patryk Dudek and Maciej Janowski.

He said: “I love riding in Sweden. I love being involved in Dackarna. They have been a really great club and those are the kind of things that motivate you constantly.

“You know you’re going to get paid. It’s a great speedway track and they have great management. We have a great group of riders and you saw how well we did last year because of it.”

Hancock is no stranger to guiding younger team mates – whether they’re SGP stars or relative rookies. But the 48-year-old admits working with riders like former protégée Janowski and Dudek inspires him to stay at his best.

He said: “Obviously I am the elder rider in the club and that works so well. I have the experience, but I also have the interest to know what they are doing too.

“To know what keeps these kids interested, I have to be right there with them. I am eyes and ears all the time.”
