    SoN Belle Vue

    Apart from the run-off heats I've really enjoyed both meetings, bringing back the World Cup would just be handing it to Poland.

    Ipswich 2019

    I wasn't aware of that. Apologies for being wrong.

    Once the squad is declared you can't change it, surely it's better to have a half-fit rider than no rider.

    He can't take time off, that would mean our SON squad was a man down, Bomber would never let the country down.

    2019 SoN Draw

    Yes but Harris has the experience abroad and you have to stick with your squad throughout, anyway Harris isn't likely to ride in the Belle Vue round, it'll be Cook, Lambert and Woffinden.

    2019 SoN Draw

    He hasn't had a good start to the season, the right riders have been selected.

    Did you notice that it's anti Speedway?

    Scunthorpe v Redcar CS 26.4.2019

    That'll make a change, after some recent performances.

    Gin for breakfast was it?
  10. It'll be an easy home win, not because BV have a particularly good team but because t'other lot have cut their own throats.

    Can't beat a good rave.

    Swindon 2019

    Presumably that applies to Swindon Speedway, as well as myself.

    Swindon 2019

    Yes but apart from the wording I wasn't wrong, it does say that "fans can now ensure they will be part of it."

    Well ok the wording was slightly different but the meaning was the same.....

    You obviously did.

    Several years ago they were advertising season tickets with "you'll be able to watch the second half of the season from the new stand."

    Or JBA.

    Your maths isn't the only problem.

    Just One Race (or maybe two!)

    Riders were open to bribery, someone would approach a riders and say 'so and so' wants to win the meeting and there's (whatever the inducement was) for you if you let him win the next race and maybe get under everyone else's feet as well. Some were openly bragging about it, some made it obvious when they suddenly slowed to let someone through and this was happening at all levels. It was eventually highlighted in a Sunday newspaper, complete with famous riders openly admitting it and seemingly seeing nothing wrong with it. I can't give figures but it seemed that a significant number of people stopped supporting and It never recovered, I knew a fair number who never went back and now consider the sport a joke. These days I'm sure there's much less of it but riders are still leading the sport's eventual demise by taking more out of it than is going in.

    A lot of people DID take notice of it, especially when the named riders admitted it, I had quite a large group of friends who travelled to big meetings all over the country and weekly at our local track, they all quit going soon after that.

    Unforeseen circumstances

    Yes and they explained why.

    There is an explanation on the Glasgow thread.

    REDCAR 2019

    I hope it will too but that doesn't exactly make it a great line-up.

    REDCAR 2019

    That's fair enough, I was a little disappointed when I saw it, I know some of Ben's close friends among riders but they don't seem to be there.
