    Cricket is one example, I'm sure there are more

    Where are they now?

    Winter issues usually feature 3 or 4 pages of a look back to a team from a certain year and that includes info on the riders and what they did after/now.

    Ipswich v Kings Lynn May 6th 2.15pm

    Looks like he came back too early from his injury, could probably do with another week or two off. A shame really because for once he'd made a good start to the season.

    2019 SoN Draw

    Don't think it makes a huge difference whether it's Cook or Bewley tbh. They'll get the 1 ride against the USA in this round and that's it. When it comes to the final in Russia, Cook at least has the experience in Togliatti from when he qualified for the GPs.

  6. Agree, it's rare that Somerset put together an average/poor side but the original one looked reliant on Berge adding heavily to his average to even come close to the play-offs and whilst Grobauer may turn out to be a good asset it's very unlikely he'll make that sort of impact this season. That said they won't be the last team to be beaten heavily at Eastbourne this year

    I don't think either side come out of this too well, but to be fair to Cook there's plenty of suggestions here that he was willing to sacrifice sponsors for more points money when he hasn't said that at all. He wanted that increased when his sponsor pulled out because they couldn't advertise in the area they wanted, I don't see a problem with him asking for that but equally understand why Chapman has said no if that takes him over budget.

    Campton's average is well over a point higher than Berge's so wouldn't fit. Lambert simply isn't good enough.

    Given Berge's history there was always a question mark over him but he looked to be the key rider in this side if it was to challenge Jan Graversen, Mark Riss and Emil Grondal are other possible options.

    Play off contenders

    Sheffield Eastbourne Edinburgh Redcar Don't think there is a real stand out team, they all have strong points but question marks over other areas. With the exception of Birmingham I think you could make a case for any of the other sides to reach the top 4 which should make for a very interesting season.

    Speedway Star in the winter

    Read this yesterday, it's nice to see that Ricky is making progress. You have to admire the determination and hard work he's put in to get to this stage, not forgetting of course the wonderful job his dad continues to do. They should both be very proud of how much they've achieved together. If he ends up taking part in the Paralympics then it would obviously be an amazing story but whether that happens or not it's great that he's found a way to keep involved in sport. Good luck to Ricky and his family.

    Difficult to judge until other sides are complete but there's a lot of question marks over that side. Could do well but wouldn't be a surprise if it was nearer the bottom either. Schlein on paper is a good signing but is in his last season before retiring, will that have an impact? As the season goes on, it would be natural to just start thinking more about staying safe especially with the injuries he's had over the years. Don't see too much improvement if any in Harris, no matter the level he will be inconsistent and have his fair share of poor meetings which is why his average is always around the same figure. Berge has the potential for a healthy increase but you think that every season, it never seems to happen and he ends up moving on. Kurtz has probably reached his level. The 2 reserves have good potential but both are very young still, neither are quite in the top level of the NL and whilst most other reserves will be from the 3rd tier they will likely have a little more experience.

    If Starke and BWD are elsewhere as expected then Kyle Newman would be a better option than Kurtz
