    Ice Speedway 2018/19

    Pictures from Saturday https://iancharlesphotos.net/160319-inzell-final-41 Pictures from Sunday https://iancharlesphotos.net/170319-inzell-final-42 I have this sneaking feeling that young Dinar Valeev could well walk away with a gold medal this year. But with four riders separated by 6 points it's going to go down to the wire!

    Looks like the reserves will have a busy Sunday!

    Possibly he will miss Heerenveen too from what I hear.I understand Franz Mayerbuchler is his replacement this weekend.

    Jell should have been given the Wild Card anyway as the German Champion. I know Bauer is the local rider, and puts bums on seats, but if he never qualified (having pulled out with illness - I know), then he shouldn't be given the wild card at either Berlin or Inzell in the first place. I'd wager he'll struggle this weekend. Rant over. So apart from the usual suspects (me, Jesper, Steve and Buxton Tiger) who else is going to Inzell?

    Berlin now on line with FIM TV Spoke with him yesterday, he's still waiting but plans to drive there when he gets confirmation.

    Jimmy Tuinstra will replace Martin Haarahiltunen at Inzell, and Tomi Tani will replace Andrei Shishegov. When I spoke to Martin on Sunday in Berlin he was hoping to be back for Heerenveen. Jimmy Tuinstra has the wild card for Heerenveen so if Martin is fit, it won't be a problem, however if he isnt will Bauer make the trip? Luca is riding on the Friday night, so he could be there if needed.

    Had a great if somewhat tiring weekend in Berlin, and thanks to Jesper for doing the updates from the meetings. I've put my photos from the weekend on my website https://iancharlesphotos.net Also look out for Bike magazine in the near future, as there was a British Freelance Photographer at his first meeting doing a feature on the sport. He was suitably impressed and he hope to got to some more meetings.

    Jesper is there but to the best of my knowledge, his mate who does the Periscope isn't there. he usually puts a link on the live updates, but there isn't one. Jesper flew to Berlin rather than drove so either a) his car is cream crackered or b) he's had one to many German Speeding tickets and doesn't want to risk ant more!

    Just been told Gunther Bauer has withdrawn from the German Championship and his wild card spot from the Weekend's Ice Speedway Gladiators meeting. I understand he has Influenza and fever. Celina Liebmann will replace him in the German Championship, whilst Tobias Busch gets the Wild Card spot with Marc Geyer replacing Busch at reserve.

Valeev barged Koltakov in the run off to earn an exclusion after taking Dimon off. At least next week I'm off to Berlin for my first live meetings of the season, so if any of you are going please say hello if you see me.

    RUSSIAN SUPER LEAGUE ROUND 7, TOGLIATTI, FEBRUARY 23 Togliatti 39.5 Danil Ivanov (3, 3, 3, 1, 3) 13 Igor Kononov (3, 3, 1, 3) 10 Nikita Toloknov (1, 1, 3, 2, 3) 10 Evgeni Saydullin (2, 2.5, Ef, 1, 1) 6.5 Igor Saydullin (ef) 0 Kamensk Ural 33.5 Dmitri Khomitsevich (3, 3, 3, 0, 3) 12 Nikita Tarasov (2, 2, 1, 3, 2) 10 Evgeni Sharov (2, 2.5, 2, 1, FD) 7.5 Ivan Khuzhin (2, 2) 4 Vladimir Bobin (0, 0, 0, 0) 0 Ufa 30 Dinar Valeev (3, 2, 3, 2, 1) 11 Ivan Chichkov (1, 2, 1, 3, 1) 8 Dmitri Bulankin (1, 1, 2, 0, 1) 5 Nikita Bogdanov (1, 1, 0, 1) 3 Nikita Shadrin (3) 3 Shadrinsk 17 Konstantin Kolenkin (2, 0, 2, 2, 2) 8 Dmitri Koltakov (1, 2, 3) 6 German Khazmurzin (0, 0, 0, 0, 2) 2 Franz Zorn (0, 0, 1, 0) 1 Dmitri Borodin (0, 0, 0) 0 Mega Lads Togliatti are League Champions. Quite a good feed today, and some cracking racing with a dead heat thrown in for good measure in Heat 5, when Evgeni Saydullin tried a list minute dash to the line, only to finish in a dead heat with Sharov. Koltakov didn't look all that happy with his performance, and Franky Zorn struggled although he was making starts, he was easily passed by the young Russians. The final round is tomorrow at 10.00GMT
