    Lives in Denmark, flew in and back out for most of the Comets meetings last year.

    The thing is you can only judge on what you see, and rightly so. From a Workington perspective, Starke and Vissing both guested for the Comets at the end of the season and then rode for Glasgow at DP in the Semi Final and both times no one would of been impressed with them and would probably be disappointed if they were signed for the Comets in 2019. So I get where you are coming from, but then I also realise that Vissing for example has a high average around Ashfield, so must be well suited there, it certainly is 'horses for courses' with speedway.

    Will be riding for Rybnik most Sunday's as well so you count him out. I don't think his plans were ever to ride in the championship with having a pretty secure place in Poland.

    I saw Joe Lawlor's post on Facebook about not having a NL team for next season, he won't be the only one forced out of NL racing on the numbers game. I don't know how some of these lads are going to get better riding in just the championship, they need time on the bike. Not scoring many points and being off the pace isn't going to bode well for their confidence and could well force some riders away from the sport.

    We need to give him a chance, with BP averaged about 6.5 at home and 3.5 away last season. He was popular the last time he rode for us, and both of his teams finished top of the league last season. He certainly wasn’t the worst signing on a 4 point average today, I think Birmingham take that accolade. Think that Josh Mac will be a star once he gets going, scored 12 out of 15 in a very competitive NSW state championship recently with Heat Wins against Sam Masters and Brady Kurtz, we can’t expect too much early on but starting at reserve will be a big help.

    Peterborough Panthers 2019

    Good Luck to Cookie, I think his home average at the EoES will be higher than it was at the NSS, he will do fine hopefully if he copes with the travelling. He will certainly be racking up the miles next year, around a 500 mile round trip to home meetings which from experience isn't the quickest place to get to, along with 2x away trips to a southern based league. Add in his Home meetings at Glasgow and I'm sure he'll be spending more hours on the road than most!

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Ah Mattia Carpanese, there's a blast from the Comets past, If I remember rightly he even scored a paid maximum once. 6 times Italian champion, 5/6 GP appearences, i'd say unfortunately for Brummies fans Carpanese was better than Castagna!

    It was six figure losses every year since they took over I believe they said Edit. Not sure if that's what you meant, and were actually asking about the other years

    Usually all 7 riders agree deals first before any announcements are done, it would be unprofessional to do so. Teams don't sign riders one by one and announce straight away hoping that they will all fit to the points limit in the end.

    What I can't understand is the pricing structure at Glasgow, and I haven't seen it already mentioned. Looks like it was also the same last season too, that it costs £10 for a 12 year old to attend?! If the owners are in it for the long term, and from what I saw when visiting last season with crowds getting lower and lower as every season goes by, surely something needs changed with plenty of clubs now having free admission for under 16's to try and draw in more interest or more chance of parents/adults taking kids with them. The family ticket on offer is also at least £10 more than other clubs in the same league.

    Love it, we better asterisk that championship then in true ridiculous American style... Roll of Honour 2018 SGB Championship Winners - Workington* *Craig Cook was not present for the Glasgow Tigers in the Championship Play Off Semi-Final fixtures, his replacement Ricky Wells only averaged 10.66 over both legs

    Belle Vue 2019

    No exactly, and that's why Dan won't be riding in the Championship, he's got bigger fish to fry including many world individual and team events running at the weekends. I don't think he'll be fit for the start of the season, but sometime in May/June he'll be raring to go again. I also don't think he needs to flog himself riding too much at this stage, can see him riding for just Belle Vue and Rybnik, he's a natural and will get plenty of laps in at Rybnik to get back up to full fitness.

    Belle Vue 2019

    A facility is given to a rider who is riding in either the Ekstraliga or 1. Liga, Rybnik are in 1.Liga in 2019. No facility is given to a rider who is riding in 2. Liga in Poland.

    Good job it isn't the 4 team tournament then! If you have a look at what reserves some teams have or will end up with it makes it sink in how much weaker the league will be. I think will we be very handily placed in that department I don't know what your thinking is behind Somerset being strong, spent forces at the top end and weak bottom end, i'm sure most rebels fans would of loved their team to have been built differently, with real crowd favourites missing out.
