    Lambert to Robins, Doyle to Stars

    Seems odd to swap one of the hottest properties in British speedway for a rider nearing the end of his career seems unlikely to me !

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    No getting away from it winning ( I am sure he will ) 3 titles will be a great achievement for Tai as it would for any rider regardless of his nationality ,I don't care where a rider is from I am more interested in their riding style myself and the way in which they conduct themselves on the track .As to him being the greatest british rider of all time that is a matter of opinion and depends how you measure it , I am not great Tai fan but do believe he is a extremely talented rider and should be given the respect he deserves within the sport. I wish him well for tomorrow night but will be rooting for Zmarzilk, I love his style and he never knows when he is beaten .
  3. One of the best meetings I have seen for while watched Bomber at Cardiff a number of years ago and it was great to see him get one over Doyle last night ,Chris may never be a world champ but he will always be remember for giving a fair 100% effort everytime he rides .
  4. Robbo great rider and team man but I do think it is the right time to go not quite riding he once was all the best for the future
  5. Gollob vs. Nilsen1999 magician on a bike TG
  6. This is one of the best meetings I have seen in a long time great advert for the sport proving that give the riders the track and they will produce the goods .Fortunately Doyle got up from that nasty looking crashI just wonder how many times he will ,he seems to be on the deck more and more these days ,can't knock him for giving 100% but just feel he may pay a big price for it one day .

    Somerset vs Wolves 29/08/18

    I think Wolves will have a better season next year they are still adjusting to life without PK (on and latterly more off the track )no Freddie this season has had an impact but they are relatively young side and will be up there next year I am sure .
  8. Fix Nights is to suit the riders ,tv and the promoters NOT the fans and which premier club is Tai riding for on Monday night if it's so great ,like most riders it's about the money ( which I have no problem with ) which decides where top riders decide to ply their trade !
  9. I do hope that Dan makes a full a quick recovery breaking your femur is one of the worst injuries for a s/way rider( many are never the same or retire after such an injury) but he is young and fit so he has every chance of a full recovery . Best wishes young man

    Unsatisfactory starts

    Spot on that is exactly what i meant !

    Unsatisfactory starts

    Most of the starting rules are there to try and even things out and give riders with inferior starting skills a better chance Chris Harris would almost never out gate Hancock ,one is a gater the other is a passer and always will be .I think it is unfair for the likes of Hancock to have the Ref and Harris to compete against ,the last thing we need is robotic starts ,nothing better than seeing a rider cut back and take the lead through his own skill rather than upteen restarts or warnings to riders .

    Unsatisfactory starts

    I am bemused at times why there is an obsession with equal starts when there is so much else wrong with the sport , there have always been gaters( Mauger&co) and passers ( Mort&co) some riders just can't gate for toffee.I witnessed Hancock being wrongly penalised on Saturday and he lost at least 2or 3 points, if the tapes are not touched,the rider is within 75 mm or broken them let it go .Nine times out of ten times the best rider will win and these percentages should not be manipulated to give inferior riders a better chance . Cream will always float to the top by trying to stop this all you will get is a ridiculous amount of restarts !

    Cardiff 2018 21st July

    Doyle's own fault IMO if he had done that to the likes of Hancock he may have backed off but a young "buck " is not intimidated in the same way if you live by the sword as they say .Doyle was a worthy Champ last year but I think that most riders are aware of his robust style now and deal with it which IMO has lead to his poor position this season in the GP'S .
  15. You have the "world champ "in your team as well !
