    2019 Swedish Eliteserien fixtures

    I see the Swedish league is in it's usual logical order - round 1 followed by one from round 10, followed by round 2, followed by one from round 9...

    Danish league 2019

    42 matches last season, not including play-offs, 30 this year. Edit: no they had 6 home matches last year, which is right for the 7 teams that were in the league Also find the new scorecard really hard on the eye. Maybe time to start wearing those glasses.
  3. BSPA says this was KOC R2. Is that a typo?

    lakeside 2019

    Wow. I expected far more reaction to the news about Stuart Douglas. Just goes to show how jaded the fans of the club are, I suppose, and who can blame them? Whilst I think that is the final nail in the coffin, he is right that a Lakeside out of Essex isn't Lakeside at all. I've always had a lot of time for Stuart Douglas. I think when someone stays in the background so much it's easy to forget the input they have in keeping the club going. That he is still talking about pouring heart, soul, and money into getting a new track in Essex after all the trials and tribulations over the years, that his heart is still set on not only chasing, but catching that dream, shows the total dedication and commitment of the man. The class and humility in his statement speak volumes. There aren't enough good words I can say about him, but "gentleman" is one that will suffice for now. Thank you for everything you did for Arena, Stuart.

    He was 2nd anyway. When I posted it was Schumacher (29%), Hamilton (27%), Senna (26%)

    Boring formula 1 racing

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/45934287 Interesting poll on the Beeb for those of us who enjoy F1. You can't see the results unless you vote, but currently people are saying that Hamilton is a better driver than Senna. I'll just leave that here...

    Wild Cards 2019

    I must admit I was expecting far more posts about Nicki's non inclusion, but I do appreciate that some restraint in revelling in the decision has been exercised. I think it would be a poor show to do so. I appreciate Nicki's decision to turn down the reserve berth. I'm sure everyone remembers Tomasz Gollob refusing a wildcard in 2014, and I guess they both had similar thought processes. For me, I want to see the best riders in the world in the GPs. As someone who has averaged in the top 4 in all 3 leagues he competes in, a GP winner this year, and a 3 times World Champion I believe Nicki falls into this category. I find it a shame that geographical politics plays such a part in the decision, but it is what it is. I appreciate Nicki has has more wildcards than perhaps any one rider is entitled to (although no more than Chris Harris who, much as I like, is clearly a rider of lesser calibre than Nicki). I agree with the previous poster who said Nicki seemed really disappointed with this decision in his comments, and that he does seem to be hinting this will be the end of his GP career. My personal opinion from his body language and things he's said over the last two years is that he had considered retiring from the sport altogether on a couple of occasions, but the win in Malilla seemed to bring about a new found motivation to get back to winning. People knock him for his "tantrums" in the pits, but it's clear to see he cares. I will miss Nicki in the GPs (and I think even those who don't like him will miss having something to talk about) and I really hope I'm wrong, and that we will see him back on the circuit in 2020, but if not, it's been an absolute pleasure to watch such an exciting and passionate rider.
  10. Then I apologise for my snappiness. I didn't get home from work until late last night and hadn't realised it was televised. Thank you for your response.
  11. If I don't ask specifically for someone who was there I will inevitably get someone try to help by posting "updates says", or a link to the official scorecard (which you have done yourself). I just wanted visual confirmation. There is no need to be quite so rude to a simple question. Edit: thank you, Fromafar, for your reply.
  12. Can someone who was at this meeting confirm the result of heat 15 please? Official scorecard says Ellis rode off a handicap but Poole's site says Simon replaced him.

    Wild Cards 2019

    Dudek and Pedersen. The other two I'm not overly fussed about. Edit: unless it's Holder. Holder I draw the line at.

    Poole 2019

    I can't help but wonder if this is pre-empting the rumoured breakaway league.
  15. Could someone who was at this meeting confirm that Sarjeant went off 15 metres in heat 8 please (not from updates - I need first person visual confirmation!)
