Hancock was elated to seal gold in his opening ride after winning a terrific tussle with Piotr Pawlicki. He said: ‰ÛÏThat first heat was exciting, nerve-wracking, emotional, everything.

‰ÛÏI realised after the first lap that the tyre was warm enough and the bike took off. I managed to reel in Pawlicki. I‰Ûªm ecstatic. To look back now on the year I‰Ûªve had, I‰Ûªm so, so amazed.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs great to be on a list of names with these other four-time world champions. Those guys have all been heroes, icons or pillars in the sport. To join them in something like this, I feel honoured. I‰Ûªm impressed and happy for myself. It‰Ûªs a real, real honour to be in that company.‰Û

Hancock‰Ûªs night ended after his third ride. He was disqualified from heat nine by the FIM Jury under rule 070.10.13, which states ‰ÛÏA rider, who, having started in a heat does not make an honest attempt to ride to the best of their ability, as judged by the referee, shall be guilty of an offence, which may entail disqualification from the heat or a penalty.‰Û

SGP bronze medallist Bartosz Zmarzlik started 2016 targeting a top-eight finish to secure his spot in the 2017 series. So he was ecstatic to achieve that and a podium place in his debut SGP year.

He said: ‰ÛÏBefore the season, my dream was the top eight and now I am No.3 in the world. I am very happy because everything this season has been so good for me. My dream in the second season next year is the same.

‰ÛÏWe will see what next year brings. All the years are so very different. I‰Ûªll see you next year.‰Û
