  1. Kings Lynn V Poole 25/04/18

    The problem is the bikes. They produce the power so high up the rev range, as riders want speed over usability.. . Todays bikes are way faster ,but once they hit a bit of grip, the revs drop, the rear grips and they take off. Back in the 80's when i was a teenager, me and my mate used to reverse the car up to the outer fence at Lynn, open the boot and stand and have a look at the track on a wet day . We could only see the 3rd and 4th turn, but sometimes some of it was under water at 2pm. Come 7.30 they had pumped the water off and the meeting was on .How times change.

    Just had a look through. .How big was that rider in the 4th pic
  3. Rye House v Wolves 25.04.18

    Agree with you. Lost my bloody bet lol
  4. Kings Lynn V Poole 25/04/18

    Bring back the upright Weslakes I say

    Looks like KK having a howler.
  6. Kings Lynn V Poole 25/04/18

    Is Wisbech about 14 miles from the stadium? Grass soaks up rain a lot better than a hard speedway track. Star Lady lives close to the stadium.Probably the best to comment on the weather over the last 2 days..

    I only bet a little on tie. So say £12 on Wolves +2 @1.90 and £1 on the +2 tie @13.00 just incase it's close. If it did end up with Rye edging them by 2 points i get my stake bet..It's saved me more with the rider points total in the past than match results.
  8. Kings Lynn V Poole 25/04/18

    Right decision. Yesterdays rain had a lot to do with the call off i suspect.
  9. Kings Lynn V Poole 25/04/18

    You might in the restaging SS, but they was ours tonight

    If KK does only get 6 rides, that will be a great bet, as I think Rory and Masters could take a point each off of KK. But I've got a feeling Rye may well go 6 down at some stage.. Good luck if you take the bet.
  11. Betting in 2018

    I expect Masters and Rory to get HT15, so maybe Thorrsell will only get 4 rides.Could well come in. I'm tempted with Rory over 10 and Masters over 9...As i said i think they will both get 5 rides.Both ride Rye ok and are going well.. Ermm, any thoughts lads?
  12. Betting in 2018

    Wolves +2 win and Wolves +2 tie @ 1.90 and 13.00.
  13. Poole 2018

    Wouldn't surprise me if Poole have a plan and have been dropping averages after their first couple of meetings, and stalling on Holder.. Nothing is won in April as they say..
  14. Wolverhampton v Poole. Prem A. 23/4/18

    Ford seems to be the best promotor in terms of finding ways around the rules, or as some say, using them to the full. Don't always work first time around. He takes no prisoners.. I think Matt Ford Fan is his son
  15. Premiership 23/04/18 - Leicester v Swindon

    As a Lynn supporter, i don't like the bloke.. But he can be a top rider as he is proving so far this season. His antics at Lynn( injured) and scoring well as a guest the next night is just one example. Another one. Guest for BV at Poole, scored 1....... For his team scored 12, 6 days later.
  16. Poole 2018

    In not a Poole fan as you know and like a dig now and again. But credit where credit's due.
  17. Belle vue -V- Rye House 23.04.18

    Thanks for that Phil. Dan is on fire at the mo. Love your track, but only seen it on TV..
  18. Poole 2018

    Can only be a good thing. How can you knock that for a few quid.
  19. Poole 2018

    Good going that.. And a bargain if the price is right
  20. Swindon 2018

    It must be horrible..Don't forget Davey scored well in the charity shield over 2 legs with the Aces. 7+3 from 5 and 5+1 from 4......So it looks like he is better than he is showing right now. Looks like he is capable of averaging 2 per meeting given a run at it.
  21. Poole 2018

    That made me lol.. But being serious, I had not heard of the meeting and if it is in tribute as Bagpuss has said to four lost riders then it is a nice touch... I don't know is SS was being serious, I suspect he was. The £3 +£5 for the souvenir program, is well cheap.
  22. Poole 2018

    Cheers. Still on the up. I admit I said i thought Woryna could put 1.5 - 2 points on that 4.65. As we know to well, a riders form abroad don't always follow then here.. It's Gosh, Linus that have dropped the most I believe. I think Kurtz will be ok .Only had one bad meeting.
  23. Poole 2018

    Spanner hasn't been in the UK for around 4 years, and has been to wolves. Starting ave 4.54.....After 4 meetings it's 4.24. Should at least do his average given more than 4 meetings. Woryna was 4.65 (at reserve I think). Now 4.89 riding in the team. Already up and he should improve even more. Shanes was 2.88. Now 2.46. I wouldn't say "He's a dead weight". Will probably do his average given a chance.
  24. Kings Lynn V Poole 25/04/18

    I'm 7 miles from track and its been raining here since 1pm, heavy at times, and still coming down with plenty of standing water. Hope it stops soon.
  25. Poole 2018

    Just seen this.I was looking in the wrong place. Missed the odd ride and 1 point from some.. If i knew it was that easy to find I wouldn't of bothered.
