  1. Would be good if clubs started showing older videos when the crowds were bigger. Probably difficult as most will be on VHS not dvd so will be harder to convert and upload, but still.
  2. Considering what he will be earning working on the mines in Australia , his homeland , i dont blame him for staying here. Probably wont be as much as Poland AND the uk speedway but then he will have less outgoings here , no catching flights multiple times a week and a very good wage to boot. its only the top riders who make a lucrative living through speedway.
  3. Well I guess nobody could of seen KK coming second that year but he did. i dont like this new speedway of nations , much preferred World Cup to be honest. But Poland were dominant at that and would be now. Zmarzlik, Dudek, Janowski, Drabik, Smektala, Hampel, KK, Pawlickis.... take 4 of them against any four of another country and id back them to win. Of course they wont win every meeting , but 9/10 they would.
  4. Agree , been watching a bit and its ruthless. Pedersen, despite his age and recent injuries , still goes for it 100 percent . The day he stops doing that will be the day he retires. Hes still got plenty to give in my opinion.
  5. Lambert completely at fault... intentional?! No.
  6. I used to enjoy my trips to Reading , such a shame Reading, Exeter, Trelawny, Newport , Oxford all gone now.

  8. He just loves a whinge . Always has on here. its sad old men like him that give the sport such a bad rep .
  9. Rob mcdrama queen at it again.

    Many top athletes are nut jobs but make world champion. Has there ever been a bigger nutter than Mike Tyson? Ward in his final season seemed to of matured and was superb , i have no doubt he would of gone on to be world champion. Its a shame his accident happened, as he was seemingly maturing .

    I cant for one minute believe hed be able to read this forum and not post. He will be back somewhere under a different name, possibly an alias he had before he even went to prison.

    Mr Garrity

    Apparantly, there were plenty of people at the last Cardiff GP who were thrilled to see him and actually welcomed him with open arms. Pathetic. and as JRS said, i am sure he is back on here under a new name somewhere. He spent his entire life on here , no way would he not be posting on here daily but posting on twitter everyday as if nothing ever happened. as for Garrity , id imagine no club will take him on now. The likes of lee , smart , lobb, ward etc had bans for stupid , braindead actions but none of them can be compared to Garrity and his actions.

    He was very popular at Newport too, remember him riding as a heatleader when he really should of been second string and he quite often used to pull big races out the bag. get well soon mate

    In what order would you place these Aussie greats???

    Correct, came in 1997 for his debut season at Newport before moving up full time with Poole in 2000 and dropping back to Newport in 2002.

    Superb , he was outstanding in 1999 and had many guest bookings in the EL for Pboro and impressed. sadly got stitched up by Kokko and Norris on his EL debut in 2000 for Poole and smashed his wrist to bits , came back and whilst he didnt get worse he never looked being the future star he did pre 2000. dropped back to Newport in 2002 and was still a classy number one and made some good passes but mainly relied on his gating which he hadnt done before his big crash. lindqvist was another Wasp who had a shocking yet simple shoulder injury in 1999 that ruined his career. wato tho in 1999 was a class act, went to Swindon for our two wins there and he was always flying later on in the meeting when it mattered. loved Smart too, he was so exciting to watch and for a rider who quite litreally only probably gave 45-50 percent of his life to the sport , was unbelievable. They dont make them like that anymore.

    In all honesty his days at Oxford were never going to last long

    Agree. His stats for the Elite League over such a duration are mind blowing . Posted 10 point plus figures for ten years in a row. Superb. remember seeing him at the 2001 Cardiff GP and the next day at the Welsh Open at Newport and was gobsmacked by how good he was. Although the first time i seen him live was the 1999 ELRC at Coventry. And he won that as well. rickardsson though was absolutely superb at Grand Prix level, where it mattered most of course. But as for league speedway , id of taken Adams or Crump every time. Although i do wonder if Trick didnt put the full effort into league speedway . i will never forget a story from Craig Watson about Trick during their time at Poole together. Rickardsson blew His engine on the stand warming up before a meeting for his main bike and couldnt of cared less, just took his third bike out the van like it was usual . overall, from 1999 to present day, in all comps, id have to say Trick, pedersen, crump and adams would be the best 4 i have seen. Gollob for my liking was too hot and cold. I personally dont think woffy would of lived with them in their primes.
