  1. Couldn't agree more! The impact he took To his head & neck are red flags, then add that he has discomfort! He may want to represent his country but god forbid the worst that could happen from a wrong move, rut in track etc. Rosco should step in and make him have a proper assessment!
  2. Surely if you were Lynch u wouldn't have put Bjerre in the rerun!
  3. Why does Kelvin think that it is acceptable to put the opposition through the fence but not your team mate?! The amount of times he has said that he can only think that Riss did not realise it was his teammate. You do NOT fence a rider regardless of who they are or who they ride for!
  4. "As for the track yes its bumpy. Has been for a while. Its called home advantage and one of the reasons I believe Its not removed." Really try telling that to a rider who has problems with a head/neck injury that still rode the track but left in an ambulance. Astounding really that as a tv spectator it was obvious that Hans was dazed let alone him admitting he couldn't turn his head, even IF it was Hans choice to continue, the management should not have allowed him to race- thought this would be the team most aware of the possible outcomes of this type of injury.
  5. I may be wrong, but I thought Poole want to hold this meeting every season, the way the fans have been treated tonight how many of the fans tonight will remember this and not turn out again to support Darcy! Surely common sense says give something back to the fans who have not got what they pay for as it was not fit for purpose. People are turning their backs on speedway and if you are going to treat the paying public like this what else do you expect?
  6. What idiot tries to open the pit gate when there is an injured rider laid against it FFS! No wonder KK kicked at it!
  7. Has found two sponges in the two fuel tanks that he used at Cardiff, has asked if anybody wants to talk to him as they were not put there by him or his team! Kelvin says this would have caused problems Chris says he doesn't think so and doesn't buy it calling it "sponge bob gate", this could be one to watch, either way someone has put it in the tank!
  8. How does Sundstrom get away with that?! He was the instigator in that. Feel sorry for Jarek poor guy was just a passenger in that and had no chance.
  9. Taken from Bjarne's website: - Bjarne Pedersen has decided to stop his english season in Leicester Lions. - The decision was easy, but I am sad that I dissapoint the club and the supporters. I have to think about myself and the rest of the season, tells Bjarne. - All the way I have been in good dialogue with Leicester, and I informed them five weeks ago, so that they could find a substitution, says BP. So who is telling the truth Bjarne 5 weeks notice or Leicester only a couple of days?
  10. That's exactly what I thought when it was first mentioned - Kenny wouldn't have a chance!
  11. Quick question does the silly gardening at the tapes whilst still on a bike still exist? If so why has nobody told the riders or ref at Lynn?
  12. Does anybody know the line-up for this meeting or where I can find information on it please?
  13. I don't believe that Kildemand had engine problems he proved that in heat 13 when he did the same again and pulled off the track but there didn't appear to be a problem with the bike when he was doing practice starts on the concrete. He didn't look interested which was a shame. Hope Rory's shoulder isn't to bad - it's a shame after all the time and effort that he had put into removing the beard that a trip to hospital stopped it from happening!

    Darcy Ward

    Didn't stop him last year in the restaurant and bar of the hotel in daugavpils, he was staying in the same hotel as the travel plus group! It was commented on then that he was in the bar 'til 2 in the morning!

    Darcy Ward

    I keep reading about Darcy being young and living half a world away from home - diddums! He made the choice to come to the uk & race here, as have numerous other young Aussies do they keep getting into trouble? Darcy knows the terms and conditions of racing be it an fim event or domestic racing. He had a choice when he had a drink last night & his actions should and will have consequences. It's not just other riders he could have put in danger there are medics and marshals etc.

    We all get bad news it's how you deal with it. Tai had a really tough time losing his dad but wasn't caught under the influence. Emil went to Bydgoszcz knowing he may never get to see his father again (sadly proved to be correct) did he turn up to the gp over the limit - no he used it to fire him up and win the gp! Enough excuses Darcy, is a grown up and sadly makes the wrong decisions regularly. If I was a sponsor I would be pi$$ed at him being in the press yet again for the wrong reasons!
  17. I guess the only thing you can say about that is that after all the gardening at least Tai didn't win it from the gate! Something will have to be done to stop that farce of all that gardening happening in future individuals though it took the pi$$ to the extreme!

    Charlie Gjedde Comeback ?

    If i remember correctly, he broke several vertebra and some of them were quite nasty hence the long period of recovery

    Lewis Bridger (depression)

    Reading his thread it appears that a lot of people are assuming that it's Lewis' profession that is causing his illness, has he stated that himself anywhere? If not could it not be life outside of the sport that could be affecting him? I have known other riders & friends that have hit bad times in their careers and unfortunately they have had to seek help from medics/psychiatrists/psychologists to get them through, but it was also things away from work that contributed to their situation. They didn't want to go public with their fights and that's their choice but Lewis may have felt that part of his recovery is admitting that he is ill and hopefully this is the stepping stone that he needed. However whether he's pulling a wheelie or not is neither here nor there depression manifests itself in many different ways and can never be pigeon holed!
  20. Granted but that was only after intervention from Tony Olsson and him remaining at the track to oversee track preparations as he did not want the GP called off!
  21. If it's the same track curator that did the GP at Bydgoszcz then they had problems with the track for the GP last year. The track for practice was apparently very bad and the riders were very unhappy as was Tony Olsson, in fact after breakfast the following morning & discussing it with Armando Castagna, he headed to the track to give it to them in no uncertain terms and oversee the prep to make sure it was rideable. That's a track he's meant to be used to -says it all really!
  22. As I said read Emil's fan Facebook page (depending on which translator you use) but certainly not a very positive article.
  23. Interesting reading on Emil''s Facebook - suggests from reading the translation his decision is made!
