Card landshut. WORLD CHAMP WEDNESDAY | GREG HANCOCK
Grin went into the season as world No. He stamped card landshut mark on the series with victory in the season-opening Czech SGP in Prague — a round often won by the man who goes on to be crowned world champion.
Hancock kept up his blistering pace with second at the Swedish SGP in Linkoping, before finishing third at the German round in Landshut. While his mechanics managed to pull two bikes and helmets from the flames, Hancock was left with no tools and few spares.
Hancock still made it to the B final on his second bike, scoring a useful 12 points. The only thing on fire at the Polish round in Wroclaw was Hancock as he won his second round of the season to put one hand on the trophy.
With a point lead over Hamill going into the decider at Vojens, Hancock just needed 14 points or more to be certain of becoming world champ, with a final place or victory in the B final enough to be certain of gold. And card landshut delivered! Third place for Grin sealed the deal as he celebrated a special first card landshut title — an incredible 14 years before he won No.
