  1. What about compulsory 14 day quarantine for riders ( Brady Kurtz, Daniel Bewley, Sam Masters, Troy Batchelor) arriving from Poland?

    I wholeheartedly agree with you... In my opinion league format match between two countries is the only test of any value. In the WTC format we have individual riders aiming for individual win, and only total points scored by each rider representing given country are counted in. One might say that with with such a format we might as well add up individual score of the SGP riders representing given country, and not bother with anything else.

    It was the Poles who volunteered to save the "Speedway of Nations" final and it was not for the first time they extended a helping hand to the British rights holders - the Benfield Sports International (BSI). The tournament was to be hosted by Manchester, but the British gave up - after all why risk it? In the circumstances, the BSI did not hesitate for a long time and approached the Polish Motor Association. After all they always run for help to Poland. Remember abandoned GPS in Germany transferred in the last minute to Bydgoszcz. Anyway this time help came from Lublin. BSI initially expected a payment of PLN 500,000. or one hundred thousand pound sterling. .Quite a lot, considering the uncertain situation and the increasing number of coronavirus infections. After all Polish government could close the stadium and lock fans at home at any time, and so they did. Anyone watching the Lublin event, had most probably a mixed feelings. Phil Morris the Race Director was pushing the tournament forward even though track conditions were terrible. He and his bosses were so determined to run the competition that only one thought comes to mind. - money, because if you don’t know what’s going on it usually comes to money. For the BSI, the most important thing was that the competition would take place, i.e. the regulatory 14 races were to be raced at all cost and then we all could go home. It a surprise that they managed to set up the winners rostrum and award medals at all. (as seen from magazynzuzel.pl point of view)

    When In the 80s, the Danes dominated WTC somehow it did not bother anyone. The Danes had a golden generation of champions, and they used them for quite a few years. Nobody thought of calling off the competition in which one nation dominates, in the same way nobody is calling off Polish club competition dominated in the last four years by one club. So when Poles came to the fore after years of drought, the FIM abandoned the exciting competition that often kept fans in suspense until the last race, and sometimes even the last bend. They did it under the ridiculous pretext of allegedly caring for the development of the speedway. Mind you, it has to be clear that Poles did not always win. They also had to swallow the bitterness of defeat, for example in Bydgoszcz, where Niels Kristian Iversen stole the gold from them in the last few yards. All the time, however, there were great emotions and great promotion of speedway. What do we have now? A two-day competition, where riders are to run 42 races, but in the end everything is decided by the grand final anyway. To this day, no one knows whether this competition called the Speedway of Nations is a continuator of the WTC or the World Best Pairs. FIM itself, cannot answer this question, saying that it is the championship of … wait for it… Speedway of Nations. What a ridiculous name. Finally, a simple question for the gentlemen from the FIM. Isn’t he Speedway of Nations getting boring? After all the Russians win it year after year. it doesn't matter whether the final takes place in Wrocław, Togliatti or on a soggy track in Lublin, interrupted after 14 races? Russia are the champion and that's it! I’d say, yes it is getting boring. (as seen from sportowefakty.pl point of view)

    ...and this is the first ( and perhaps last) time that I agree with Steve Shovlar. There are better riders in Poland than Wozniak, but because Janowski and Pawlicki last year had doctor's certificate to prove that they were not feeling well enough to represent Poland in a "mickey mouse'" international, he rejected them this year Poland's representatives in a FIM event. Shame.

    Here he goes again...If Emil is the best rider then he had opportunity to prove in eight GP rounds. ...and please, don't call it "cup", because it isn't.
  10. PolskiZuzel

    SON 2020

    You call it "cup"... and I call it CRAP. Bring back Daily Mirror Tournament of 1973...then we can talk about CUP...if not that then a minimum of 5 riders from each competing nation...and if not even that, ten four riders as we used to have few years back...two ridewrs don't make a team... its a pair and I don't have argument with this. So don't call "cup", don't call it SoN, byt call what it is..Pairs Championship

    Polish Extraleague 2021 signings, rumours etc etc

    Tai Woffinden, despite having broken hand, did his best to make sure that his team Wroclaw reached for bronze medal in the Polish Speedway ExtraLiga. He made available for Dan Bewley not only his engines from Ryszard Kowalski, but also mechanics, and during the two final matches personally supervised the progress.The effect was surprisingly good, because the young Bewley scored 23 points in two matches for the bronze medal and was by far the biggest surprise at the end of the season. Most importantly, the 21-year-old rode not only efficiently, but also very effectively, and confirmed that his problems at the start of the season were due to poor equipment and not fear of risky riding. (…)His position in the Wroclaw team will be rather unchallenged, because currently Tai Woffinden, Artiom Łaguta, Maciej Janowski, Gleb Czugunow and Bewley are sure of a contract for the next season. In recent weeks, several clubs have applied for the Brit, but Wrocław have told them that they do not intend to release him. (source: Przegląd Sportowy)
