  1. No, it wouldn't and it would have been completed had this been on Monday with BT there. It drizzled for a few minutes, rained fairly gently for five minutes then petered out. The tractor came out, went around bend three/four and hey presto, the water was gone. Unfortunately half way through that two minute job, it was announced that the meeting was abandoned. Nobody went to look at the track. Everyone around me was surprised and pretty grumpy at such a poor decision. The track was far wetter before the meeting and also why bother with the interval when all in the grandstand could see the shower coming? I don't know who drove the decision, although handy financially that it came after the cut off, but with four heats remaining.
  2. Yeah, absolutely. Kurtz possibly had mechanical issues though, as he went through the tapes, didn’t he? Sundstrom’s let himself down a bit though, he’s been here for eight meetings, so to make such a rookie mistake is silly.

    So you did, although he certainly didn’t hang around long. I thought his brother showed more promise here, but I suspect both are about 5 point riders in this country.

    He is a completely different rider. Literally. Michał Szczepaniak was at Coventry, his brother Mateusz was at Poole and Kings Lynn and is now back at Poole.
  5. You’ve got the wrong end of the stick; DC2 is a Swindon fan. He’s trying to have a dig at Poole (again, yawn), but in doing so has given Somerset one too.

    Not really a sensible comparison though as Zmarzlik only had an assessed average, whereas Woryna has an established one. Its entirely correct to reassess a rider who hasnt got an established average, for example Piotr Pawlicki when he went to Wolves. Don't the (last years) rules only allow a reassessment if a rider is out injured for a year, or missing from Britain for three years?

    Kurtz was signed as a third heat leader though and, despite spending the majority of the season riding at number one, still managed to increase his average. I'd say he was a spectacular success, let down largely by Kasprzak's lack of effort.
  9. Good grief, how often do you need this explaining

    Speak for yourself SB, personally I'm quite fond of flange.

    You've claimed this a few times Sidney, but it's just not true. Holder had some horrible blips away from home last year, hence why: Kasprzak 2016 away average -7.71 Holder 2016 away average -7.54 Still, a great signing for KL and a very decent side. Excluding the play offs at Monmore, Holder was outstanding for the last few months of the season.

    Which of course has no impact at all on Kurtz, as he holds a dual nationality passport and so doesn't need a visa. Just because Swindon stuffed up, doesn't mean anyone else has.

    Swindon 2017

    It's always been a seven, as we are working with last year's Premier League averages. He has a Danish average of below six from last year so, according to the rules, is a category 2 rider, and therefore 7. It's 18.6.1/2 of last year's rulebook.

    Coventry 2017

    Bjerre should be around nine, King I think will be a point lower. It's difficult to assess without seeing all the line ups, but Coventry look a middle of the road team, with a chance of fourth place. Bates starting at reserve is a big plus, as he's far better than his five point average, however that only offsets having Garrity on such a high average. I'd have replaced Kerr and Sarjeant with a two pointer and a stronger rider like Kylmakorpi, but it's probably more financially prudent this way and it's good to see a club retaining a young, British core.

    King's Lynn Stars 2017

    I would think it's an educated guess. Holder wants to ride here, he's running out of teams who could accommodate him, and MF seems to suggest there's no NKI (maybe there's a reason he knows, relating to the aforementioned rider filling the number one sized hole at Kings Lynn).

    Crikey, that's almost as bad as being sent to Coventry.:-)ETA the wink, I forgot the wink.

    Swindon 2017

    What makes you think that? He was quite a bit worse than Sargeant and Rose in the PL last year, and on a par with Branford and Clegg, but they all have far more experience on the EL tracks.

    Wolves 2017

    Kilndt on a five point average is no risk at all. Look at the comparable riders; Bager, Jacobs, Stefan Nielsen etc. He averaged over five as a heat leader last year in the EL. Yes, he's a bit of a gater, but I'd expect him to be somewhere between second string and third heat leader, depending on what his home track is.

    Coventry 2017

    And again, when it started so well! The cynic in me would suggest that in view of the current worries, today was a good time to bury the release of the rest of the team, but I'm sure that wasn't the case here, just unfortunate timing... Fingers crossed everything turns out well for Coventry.

    Coventry 2017

    Coventry are looking quite promising. You really would have to drop a bollock with the remaining riders, to not be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.

    Chris Holder

    Leaves 3.90 for two reserves so won't work, nevermind Jacobs being at reserve. If BV get Holder it would be at the expense Worrall,Cook or Fricke. Doesn't sound likely, unless Fricke goes to Coventry.

    Kasprzak home average -8.22 Kasprzak away average -7.71 Pretty close really. ETA. Holder home average -9.23 Holder away average -7.54

    Either that, or no KK.
