    An injury to your 2nd or 3rd averaged rider and the tail gets even longer.

    At least other teams will know that heat 2 will be a walk over for them !

    KENT 2019

    Edwards should be a heat leader this season and Spooner is popular at Kent so Len will show loyalty over points gaining. He knows he has a gem in Gilks and can build the team on a low points limit. There’s a glut of number ones this year due to reduction of points limit and clubs. It is, I’m sure intended to force riders into the Championship but these clubs appear to want untried overseas riders above the homegrown boys again this year.

    NL AGM 2018

    Simply need more clubs in the NL and considering the dearth of clubs in the south Rye House should be allowed to join.

    Mildenhall 2019

    Trouble is Richard that opportunities in the CL are few and far between especially as it’s such a northern based league.

    Leicester NL 2019

    A bit unfair to expect Ablitt to be a no. 2 with no NL experience !

    I thought the lower points limit was there to stop the likes of Cook coming into the CL. The league will still be too strong for some of the young riders expected to move up from the NL.

    If that’s the case then no wonder the cost of racing is out of control!

    Yes and he continues to live in his own little ‘speedway bubble’ . He is the owner of assets that will probably never ride in the UK again sadly.

    Is Nobody bothered ?

    If Rye House were to settle their bills and monies owed to riders the bspa might let them rejoin a league.
  11. The sad thing is that when Rye won the league in 2005 and 2007 the place was rocking. Its never been very pretty but the viewing was good and although still a gaters track did produce good racing. Since the airfence went in its changed a lot and viewing is difficult. Track changes have taken away the technical element and it’s too flat out follow the leader.

    2019 NL Season

    Kent have applied to run on Saturdays next season.
  13. So the bikes are dangerous and holding back better racing. I wonder if a better track surface would make them safer.
  14. Clearly no idea of what the NL has tried to represent. Teams like Mildenhall and Eastbourne have young riders who should be moving through the sport but are probably going to be stuck in the roadblock that the CL has become due to doubling up being so extensive in this league. Alfie Bowtell has suddenly become a high scoring reserve for Lakeside but needed patience from the team for him to develop. Supporters of the PL and some CL think that riders appear out of nowhere and some have done little to give riders in the UK a chance. Its all coming home to roost now for some as affordable riders are getting thin on the ground.

    Newcastle 2019

    In crowd terms Poland has always been the exception even going back to the 70’s they were 10 times UK crowds. Sweden had low attendances until the ‘Rickardson’ effect but now attendances are starting to decline as are their riders.
