    Peterborough v Wolves 17.9.19

    Well done to the Panthers for finishing off their 2019 programme with a win. A nothing meeting for Wolves either way.

    Peterborough v Wolves 17.9.19

    I fail to see the similarity. Ive seen riders missing due to partners giving birth which is without question a special dispensation. failing to arrive in time for a meeting or not being able to is no way similar in the slightest!

    Poole v Ipswich today

    You said you would only comment on the track when you have watched the meeting you recorded. If you have can you confirm what 100% of all posters from Poole and others clubs have said about how bumpy it is. Acknowledged by Holder and Hawkins. Sorry Steve, hopefully the Wolves boys will keep themselves safe for next week tho and refuse.

    Poole v Ipswich today

    When you have watched it perhaps you can agree with everyone else then? Nice little quote to describe the track. One of the many bumps and waves. Thought you could only use riders from non Play Off teams so absolutely not. The base has been the issue for years, that’s why it’s been as bad as it has for so long. Just goes to show the blading they did after the track was clearly too dangerous to ride was just yet another quick fix. Josh the only one who knows how to ride the track. It’s always by the fence by the halfway stage. Pretty dull meeting due to the track as well.

    He obviously couldn’t see the ruts and waves on the track walk. Bouncy and wavy right from heat 1. Nowhere near as bad as the travesty of a track earlier in the year but still it’s no wonder racing has been processional (watching recorded so only on heat 2).

    Ipswich 2019

    If Ipswich had limped into the PO’s without changes I’d have said they would be rank outsiders however by bringing in a quality number one it would be foolish to write them off.

    Poole 2019

    Yet have won at Wolves this season. Evenly balanced if that’s the draw. Poole are THE most dangerous team when it comes to the Play Offs. Can’t believe any team would choose them if they had the choice.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    As should any foreigner wanting to ride over here. If they are good enough to ride in another country the minimum should never be less than 4.

    Poole 2019

    You only have to ask one of your fans who said that it was being discussed by those ‘in the know’ that Wells had asked to be stepped down. A ridiculous rumour gets ridiculous accusations. Nothing to apologise for by anyone.

    Shov himself thinks guests would make you stronger, as you can see by his response above.

    Poole 2019

    When a rider is struggling any rider makes them stronger. A strong rumour that you admit you got completely wrong I guess? It’s a shame some of your own supporters posted bull rubbish in the first place. As expected, Wells is fit enough to ride which was evident from his score last night!

    Poole 2019

    Poole had the perfect chance to get rid of Wells before the deadline cut off which would have been the correct thing to do. I fail to see how some Poole fans think its perfectly ok for Wells to suddenly decide to be able to drop his PL commitments but be fine for his CL ones. If he is fit for one league he is fit for both. Maybe he is riding with an injury, that’s no excuse however. Other riders are currently riding injured and will get rest and or surgery once the season has finished. No rider can pick and choose which meetings to ride in, especially when they have contracts and commitments to 2 clubs in the UK. Id suggest that it would suit Poole to be able to use guests because it would strengthen them somewhat however the fact that it stinks seems lost on some. If Wells is fit to score well on Friday he will be fine to ride for Poole next week, no excuses.

    Scored zero last time he came with Poole.

    Definitely option 2

    The instigator, correct.

    Craig Cook Ban Dropped

    Apologies Fromafar, so yes I fully agree with that too.

    Poole vs Kings Lynn 12/09/19

    It hasn’t been for other riders who have missed flights so I fail to see why it would be in this instance.

    Poole vs Kings Lynn 12/09/19

    In comparison to last season he hasn’t had as good as season this year in the UK. But like you say, hardly poor when you consider he is 3rd in the averages. Robert has made bigger strides on the World stage which in terms of GB is a good thing. The UK is small fry to most of the top riders and he will be another GB rider missing to the UK scene too. Thats the fault of the UK leagues and BSPA we don’t do more to ensure the likes of Robert and Tai want to race here. Obviously not excusing him missing his flight tonight, plenty of others have done that or used that excuse in the recent past too. It can happen and I’ve not seen other riders face a fine or penalty as some as suggesting, so I fail to see why Robert should deserve a ban.

    Craig Cook Ban Dropped

    That wasn’t on the various videos shown on social media and I agree there is a reason why bikes aren’t permitted to be ridden in the pits. Cook is most definitely to blame for his part. It no less excuses the behaviour of others involved or the have a go (none) hero Marshall.

    Craig Cook Ban Dropped

    Not shocking in the slightest. They were equally as culpable. What’s now shocking is that the outcome has very different outcomes for them to what Cook has now received.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    The marshal instigated the carnage that followed.
  22. stevebrum

    Craig Cook Ban Dropped

    The reaction of the wayward marshal started the melee. Its also a fact that the Marshal put himself in danger that started the melee. Im not standing up for Cook in the slightest, but too many guilty parties involved and unfair penalties dished out.

    Craig Cook Ban Dropped

    A crazy decision, and it really is who you know and how much money you are prepared to spend.
  24. Watching the race back I think the actions of Vissing on the back straight lead up to the incident causing all 3 to go into the bend together. An exclusion from anyone however is still harsh.
