Listen on

Episode notes

Hans Nielsen has been recognised by the FIM as an icon for very good reason..! In his career he won 22 World Championship medals in all competitions, including 4 individual World titles. It could however have been so many more were is not for the fickle finger of fate, as he claimed many more silver medals, missing the top step by the smallest of margins.

We discuss Hans' stellar career which saw him dominate British speedway through the 80's and 90's, in fact we was the top averaged rider from 1983 to 1990, NO rider delivered more.

We also look at what is next for Hans, having stepped down from Danish national management and heading to Polish league management!
