Episode 38- They Need to be Grounded! Erik Gundersen

July 5, 2018

This week, Greg was in Horsens, Denmark for the Danish Speedway GP and Stefan was on regular duties back in Norrtälje. On route to Horsens Greg made time to stop into Tjæreborg, Denmark and visit his longtime friend and big hero/mentor Erik Gundersen along with his wife Helle at their home.

From the early days of Greg’s European career riding in the same team with Erik to having the opportunity to live in the same house with Erik and Helle in his second season and less than a year after Erik’s career ending neck injury, it’s quite a story. Erik continues to be a hero for Greg and is the current coach/trainer/mentor to the future Danish Speedway stars.

Erik, Helle and Greg take a step back in time to talk about their careers and the life they’ve led up to present day. Erik elaborated his thoughts about teaching the kids including Greg back in the day as well as how important it is to get them grounded. You will love hearing these motivational words coming directly from the Main Dane himself. It’s no wonder why he is so well liked, admired and respected in life and in speedway.

Listen in and see you next week!
