  1. Seven eat outs and off abroad for a couple of weeks shortly.
  2. You know more than me. He’s just never looked fast enough in the GPs.
  3. For me Craig Cook doesn’t have “all the ability”. I’ve always thought him a bit upright and stiff on the bike and reliant on his gating, certainly not a flexible and natural bike handler or dynamic overtaker like Darcy Ward, Scott Nicholls or Chris Harris, and that’s why he hasn’t done so well in Poland, combined with a lack of experience and inadequate equipment for very big and fast tracks.
  4. That’s pretty harsh on Craig. He made it to the top 15 riders in the world on his own merit. Quite an achievement even if he couldn’t manage a top 8 finish to keep him there and on a par with very good riders like Kolodziej, Zengota and Miedzinski.
  5. I agree, but that wasn’t the point I was making. If my uncle hadn’t taken me to speedway when I was 13 I would never have gone and would never have heard of it until my thirties when I started buying the local paper, the Swindon Advertiser, which, unlike the national media, does very good speedway coverage.
  6. My original reply was to Grachan’s post that said many people do not know what speedway is, so if they do not have any experience of it at school (unlike the possibility of canoeing etc) or cannot do it at home we’re reliant on publicity (very little in the British media) or older fans taken their children.
  7. Speedway clubs need to get into schools and arrange free, behind the scenes trips to meetings and promote have a go camps.
  8. What I said was: “One of the reasons being it’s not a sport that you can do at school or at home. Practically every other one is, even if they’re restricted to summer camps or trips out to try canoeing or horse riding. And while motor sports are generally not available to children they’re familiar with cars and motorbikes on the road.” While speedway might be available in training camps it doesn’t make it onto the list of extra-curricular sports offered by schools in trips to outdoor activity centres that do canoeing, rock climbing and horse riding.

    Nah, I think it’s some sort of conspiracy.

    You might think that but BWitcher’s just PMed me to say I’m definitely not part of his clique!

    Corona virus

    He hasn’t “obsessively baited” Chris4Gillian, he’s had a long debate with him on two threads.

    Corona virus

    Bwitcher is right about Covid and he has given compelling arguments, citing government figures. Those who argue with him cite opinions, not facts, and consequently they are poor debaters and ultimately resort to insults rather than admit that they are wrong.
  14. Missing Swindon winning the league again. We’ve got used to it.
