    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.

    Odsal

    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.
  4. 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.

    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.
  9. 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.

    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.

    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.

    Too much pressure

    So how are riders supposed to progress? There are others who are doing OK.
  18. Yes, broken bone in his wrist but he's riding with it strapped up.

    Too much pressure

    I think there'll always be those who fall by the wayside, moving up isn't just about riding ability, it needs a strong and determined mindset.
  20. It's OK moaning but who do you suggest should have replaced Rosco and Harris? Rosco is probably the most successful manager in the country, Harris might be on the downward spiral but there's no real replacement, Bewley might get there but he hasn't yet fully recovered from his accident and long lay off. people mention Steve Worrall but he isn't improving and often looks too rigid on a bike. If you look at greats from the past they were usually pretty good from the start (much like Dudek and co, Darcy and Holder), we had some bad luck this year, you can't really plan for that.

    Brummies v Bears

    Thought he'd retired.
