    Rosco steps down as GB boss

    I think he's done a good job, we only have one truly world class rider, yet we won silver in the SON.

    Rossiter Stands Down

    This is already featured on the GP/World Cup thread.

    Rosco steps down as GB boss

    Agree with your post except I'm still not convinced by Lambert.
  4. Now possibly Tai but definitely not Rosco. Alun has done a good job in my opinion, who next?

    Rebels with an L and Sheffield.

    Ipswich 2019

    Oh you're certainly thick but not because of your views.

    They wouldn't, they made that clear to Tony Mole a few years back.

    The (claimed) main reason was stadium development but yes the place was deserted during the last season and it was embarrassing to see riders on parade, waiving to empty terraces.
  9. I remember Simon Cross's sister and others riding years ago, didn't they ride in the development leagues?

    Park Avenue now have a ground and offered to share with the Bulls but the Bulls are intending to build their own much smaller stadium during their two year stay at Dewsbury, there are no plans for speedway in that.

    No it wouldn't, this has been discussed repeatedly in the local press recently and the stadium is to be sold, if anyone has a few million quid spare it might be worth approaching the council, otherwise forget it.

    REDCAR 2019

    Silk purse, sows ear etc. He's a business owner having fun.

    REDCAR 2019

    I gather he has some top engines and is known to loan them out to team mates.
  14. It also proves that a lot of liars on here have tried to milk the situation.

    REDCAR 2019

    Another two pointer isn't going to make a real difference, Bears are now in a position to try and bring on such a rider, their strength allows for it, very different from past seasons.

    Speedway Star idea

    Sure it isn't an upright?

    How about Shire horses pulling the grader, anything they drop could be left on the track to add interest.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    He'd been riding in Europe for several years, even Swindon had considered signing him on the strength of that, I expected more. Jordan didn't have that background but I'd have him any day over Mikkel

    Rider Movement

    It's just a circus act, It's like Belle Vue during the war, when the same riders pretended to be a different team each week.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    I hope you get more out of him than Redcar did.

    Too much pressure

    That doesn't necessarily follow, before doubling up and silly names for different divisions, the top clubs would try out a second division rider when someone was missing, often they discovered that middle order men made better additions than second division bigwigs. They can all ride but they don't all have the strength of mind and focus, all you can do is try them and see. I don't wish to name names as it wouldn't be fair but there are some pretty successful NL riders who would never cut it above.
