Episode 36- Meet The Press! Pove Persson/Norrtälje Tidning-Newspaper

Episode 36- Meet The Press! 

 

Join us for this entertaining yet informative conversation with Pove Persson from Sweden’s Norrtälje Tidning newspaper. Many journalists from the press have a tough job to get the story the want or need and we did all that we could to trap Pove into telling us all about it. Many riders are easy to get the interview but there are also numerous that can be difficult or make you feel like you are talking to yourself as we (Reel45) put it. As we began our Podcast with Pove, he was also trying to get that interview from Greg at the same time so it seemed like he tried to trap us instead! :) Greg and Pove have a long time business relationship which has turned into a friendship at the same time. There is a lot of sarcasm within their relationship so it leaves many to wonder “whats on the record or whats off the record”????!!! Listen here and decide for yourself. 

 

Norrtälje Tidning is a newspaper from the Roslagen area of Sweden and are giving great coverage for Rospiggarna Speedway. They are also promoting the build up the first ever Speedway GP in Hallstavik on July 7th. Pove is a key link to the world of speedway media throughout Sweden and an amazing ambassador for the sport let alone many other sports. We want to Thank him hugely for giving us the time to elaborate on his line of work. 

 

Thanks for tuning in and we’ll see you next week.

Speedway of Nations!! A Wasted Journey!

We all learn from our mistakes and sometimes don't think before we speak. In this Episode 35, Stefan asks Greg about a recent situation that occurred within Team USA directly after the Speedway of Nations in Teterow, Germany.  After reading an article in a UK Speedway magazine about a Wasted journey for Greg's Team partner in that event, Stefan decided to put Greg on the spot to ask his opinion or response to the disturbing comments made against Greg and the whole Team USA crew. It's an eye opener all around and leaves Greg to wonder who really had the Wasted Journey! Thanks for listening and please follow us on Podbean, Itunes and Acast or follow our social media @real45podcast and give us a like or even a comment.

Episode 31- I can make the Tools to Slide! Hans Andersen

Greg recently ran into long time friend and fellow speedway competitor Hans Andersen down in Småland, Sweden. They met up at the MX World Collection on route to their first home match with Dackarna. Hearing the whole story of how hard Hans has worked to get where he is today as well as maintaining a family lifestyle is impressive. The youth of today could learn a thing or two about dedication and working to achieve your goals. Success starts with a dream as well as looking up to your idols. Hans has captained Denmark to World Team Championship success and he continues to strive for more World Championship success for both himself as well as the Danish national team. You will understand what a cool and inspirational guy he is and its no wonder Greg calls him a friend.

First we attended Greg’s  race with Stal Rzeszow against Rawicz on Sunday April 29th which they won and then joined this huge event at Rzeszow Airport at 9AM the following morning April 30th! Greg rode into the airport on a Harley provided by Game Over Cycles in Rzeszow and then joined Rzeszow Airport CEO Michal Tabisz on stage to make an official presentation to all the public and media that we would be joining the inaugural flight to Newark. This event was put together in a matter of 3 weeks and all handled by Michal Tabisz and his staff together with LOT Polish Airlines. What a fascinating individual he is.

Episode 28 - Making Magic

This week’s episode 28 is with Maciej Janowski and we are calling it: “Making Magic”! Everyone knows my log time relationship with Magic and this is truly one of the most awaited episodes that I’ve wanted. He is such an amazing kid with a huge heart and massive love for the game. I’ve had the pleasure of helping him a little on his run up to the current day but it has to be said that Magic has made it on his own. My mechanic Rafal Haj picked up Magic from an early age of about 12 years old and introduced him to me when he was 13. Magic has always had the look in his eye and that’s what had me sold on the kid from day one. He could not even speak english when we first met but he has grown to be a great human being and a massive star in his home country of Poland. I am proud to say that I know Maciej Janowski and will stand behind him always. Even though we compete against each other, we have a huge mutual respect for one another. Watch him continue to grow!! - Greg Hancock
