  1. Dan reminds me of a young Tai Woffinden. ..

    Newcastle now closed !!!

    Anders Michanek. ....
  3. Woffy just not mixing it when it gets tight anymore... Doesn't put riders under pressure either when behind. .. Lambert was very fair then, maybe too fair. .? Injured rider so maybe he would have moved over if Lambert had puf him undrer more pressure...?
  4. The racing is really good tonight with no constant track prep.... Time for Fireman Phil to destroy it by flooding it and moving the dirt into the inside....
  5. If they leave the track it could be great for Bewley... Light lad, a bit of dirt on the outside on a wide track.... Right up his street....
  6. Zmarzlik just more agressive than the rest... Aims the bike and now expects the rider on the outside to leave room... And they do, every single time...
  7. Hope Jack's toe is ok....
  8. Eurosport fine in Manchester... It is though 2022 here... A good start to the meeting...
  9. Lots of head shaking.. Even from the winners... They obviously havent ever seen sawdust or worn boiler suits...
  10. 5-1... Or 7-2?...
  11. He does seem to be becoming a bit of a knob when doing interviews doesn't he...? Poorly advised or too large headed maybe? I hope it is the former as currently he doesnt have too much to be large headed about given his form... Seems to want to be "down wiv ver kidz" a bit too much... Comes across as being far too "look at me" and not genuine.. Get back to being "normal" Tai, and dont alienate your fan base...

    King's Lynn v Sheffield 23/06

    Fans haven't taken away that emotional attachment to their team that a team sport has to have to have any chance of success, the promoters chose to do this... Fans haven't decided to run meetings on nights that their employees dictate they run, rather than when the fans can turn up, the promoters chose to do this... ,Fans haven't decided the admission fee.which is designed to pay a good number of riders to not have to work for six months of the year, promoters chose to do this... Fans haven't decided the ludicrous operating model that brings such very little credibility, and media coverage as you cannot take it seriously, the promoters chose to do this... This year's PCMM at the NSS, last year's SON at the NSS, the GP Challenges at Glasgow, and obviously Cardiff's crowd every time they run shows just how much of a following the sport still has in this country... Therefore, it is clear.... The 'SPORT' retains a reasonably large following in the UK... But the domestic leagues don't have the same number following them.... And for that to be the case, it definitely is not the fault of the fans....
  13. Garyinski Newbonski doing the interviews...
  14. And doesn't a sponsor pick up a hefty % of it? Pay what you can afford... And if you can afford "silly money" then so be it...
  15. After that, it's a good job Berntzon doesnt ride for Lodz.. He wouldnt get paid for June....

    Eurosport

    Looking at the crowds the TV matches get, maybe the clubs might not want too many covered? And the later ones covered in the season might at least have play off places at stake which may bring a few more out to attend..
  17. You may be on to something there... Fortunately the way it is going it wont be too long before there are more riders than team places, meaning guests will be a thing of the past..

    Could have brought in Aunt Bessies aa a Guest Chip for the rest of the season.. Probably an improvement on their original No 1 choice...
  19. Or maybe "one medium league" depending on how many could be left...

    Ipswich 2022

    2 rides for the fifth rider in the averages and 2 rides for No. 7.. No 7 missing then two rides for No 6 and two for No 8... Many a guestfest could be prevented with a proper fit for purpose RR facility...

    Takeaway RD... Every time...

    workington ..

    Can't wait to visit... Looks like another "proper racetrack" that is deliberately set up to suit the modern machinery...

    But we have guests and RR galore now.. Was it quoted on here a couple of weeks back by someone who did the leg work that less than 40% of meetings have taken place with full septets contracted to the teams on view? Therefore a top league running on nights when Denmark and Poland runs to accommodate Poole and Glasgow would be better off running RR when rider clashes happen rather than running full teams on Monday and Thursday.. (Ideally they would work around rider availability but probably very difficult to do logistically).. The top league needs to be the pinnacle and flagship to sell the sport.. Riders may lose the chance to DU, but if nothing changes soon they may not get the chance to ride for any team, never mind two over here..
