    Ivan Mauger passed today.

    Sad news Ivan died today 78, and probably the best all time speedway rider ever, great guy, his nick name was Sprout, he won 6 world championships, a true champion. RIP Ivan.

    I always say passed, as that what he did in many races, the great Phil Crump and co are legends, by the way, I hate sprouts, especially from brusselles, legends never leave us, their memories live forever,

    6 world titles, 3 times runnerup and a 3rd, he also won 3 world long track tiltles, he was twice Australian champion, and 4 time NZ champion, he raced in 26 countries winning more than a 1000 races, I think he will go down in history as the best ever speedway racer. Married at 17 to his 16 y/o wife, they left NZ as teenagers to take on the world in speedway. Legend.
