Then in 1960 and still only 17 years old, Bengt got himself a bike and applied for trials with the famous Getingarna outfit.

At that time the Stockholm team was going through a period where nothing would go right for them. The Swedish League was well under way and they had not won one of their first six matches. So Bengt was plunged into the white hot heat of competition in a meeting with Dackarna.

No story-book ending for Getingarna, they crashed to their seventh successive defeat but newcomers Jansson managed to score four points.
