    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    I think you will find that riders do not say anything about where they are riding until it is announced by the club. In the SS report, he was also saying he would like to be racing in the PL & NDL. Hoping for a PL spot is the 1st part of the story. The 2nd is his hospital visit for a progress report. The 3rd is that the door is still open for an NDL spot(his over 4 CL average probably will curtail his initial inclusion if the rules stay the same) The 4th is that he would love to be back at Scunthorpe(We will not let him go to another club )

    Kyle learnt the tracks at no6 for Workington with no pressure put on him riding with & against better riders. For Glasgow, he rode at no7 & was expected to score some points riders riding against riders of a similar or lesser ability. If you put 2 x 2pointers at 6 & 7, the no7 WILL score more points.

    Maybe you are hearing it correctly but not seeing it correctly as I cannot find a rider with a 7.95 average although I did find one with the 5% added. S Worrall at 7.57

    We are not out of this season(1 day) never mind pre season optimism. There is still time for the rules & limits to change to spoil teams "possible" line ups. Post AGM we will know the rules but teams will probably not be fully announced until mid/late December (1 rider per week with some teams)
  10. Don't most of the promoters go to the monthly/ pre AGM meetings so all present would know something about next year? Did you post on another thread that it could only be British riders that have ridden in the NDL in these last 3 years would get the new 5% reduction? I would give all British riders a 2.5% reduction & to promote loyalty, any rider that finished in the final team declaration a reduction if they sign for the same team.

    I seem to remember that you even had 1 of this years team turning out most weeks during the winter helping with track work, cleaning, replacing ready for this last year.

    Is this team built on the cheap? Only 2 loan fees. Is it uninspiring with riders on the way down? Due to injuries so could step up Have riders reached their maximum? Allen needs to step up that little bit more to get to no1 with his injured shoulder sorted for next year. Auty will drop his average at no1 but will Allen step up enough to stay at 1 & keep Auty at 5? Aarnio & TJ should, hopefully, shake off injuries during the winter with more to come. Ayres still has room for improvement & Lambert got his confidence back & rode the smaller, tight away tracks well. What could Palin do? It depends where he is put in the team. At 6 he might struggle & at 7, will he be up against riders of similar experience & ability. This team, using Final averages, comes to 40.86. British discounts for ex CL, NL, NDL riders?

    I agree. A track should be made to suit the riders to gain a little home advantage on our track but how many years has Rob made a team up to entertain. That is almost a guarantee on our track so give our riders something to have a go on but having a bit of difficulty so not to be easy for away riders.

    It might be talked about but nothing finalized until mid November.

    Championship Grand Final 2019

    IF'S, BUT's & MAYBE'S. It is a dangerous, high octane sport that has it's spills & thrills. Staying on the bike, engine failures are part of the sport. How many other teams can go back & count points dropped? Leicester used the guest option to have a 7 man team. Glasgow replaced Starke to have a 7 man team.
