The Golden Hammer - 1986
By Tracy Holmes and Steve Baker

July 23. 1986.

Steve Johnson for Speedway Star tells us all about it. "Man of the moment Erik Gundersen produced another superb performance to leave a World Class field in his wake and carry off the prestigious Golden Hammer for the first time. Gundersen was a class above the rest as he romped to five brilliant victories, finishing four points ahead of his nearest challengers Simon Cross and Neil Evitts. The consistency shown by the World Champion was something the other riders simply could not match, his rivals faltering in turn and combining to ruin each other's chances. Shawn Moran was forced to retire after his third ride when he aggravated his ankle injury."
