BWD also rides in Poland for Gdansk.......an issue of sunday riding is that pretty much every single potential replacement will already have commitments in Poland, unless you go with the risk of a complete unknown from Denmark, Sweden, Czech Republic etc.
I cant really see the point of making any team changes at this time, are the team doing good enough, no, is anyone glaringly poor, no.
Should Ty, Kasper and Broc be scoring better around Sheffield, probably, but currently Drew and Zaine are far outscoring what was expected of someone in their first full seasons
Away Danny isn't hitting the points a top number 1 should be, Zaine and Drew are in their first seasons so cant be expected to be really scoring but Ty's away performances are currently better than his home.
The trouble is everyone can see the fixture list and can see the shield is gone, barring a miracle the cup is over, given we have some blank home dates in the fixtures and not believing the promotion will leave a bank holiday sunday fixture free and thus bringing someone forward, we could then potentially be looking at finishing the season at home in July !!!, Although given the fact there is massive potential for Sheff Utd to playing live on TV or at home at 4pm come sundays in August/September this could be great planning???
As for the track, well its certainly looked better in the last 2 weeks, it hasn't actually produced much better racing but it certainly hasn't been as dry dusty or looking like the M1, so improvements have been made in that area its obvious. Now why we don't have the racing we all once remembered I dont know, maybe the track is still poor in terms of producing different lines, it is currently gate go and as long as you dont drift off that one line you dont get passed, yes there was passing against Glasgow but I would say thats more to do with the rider in front making a mistake rather than someone blasting around the boards or cutting up the inside.
No matter how much any promotion bigs up their club their team and their riders, the simple fact is Speedway is only 15 minutes long and now at 16 quid to get in thats over a pound a minute....I dont see too many keen to cough up over 90 quid each week for a football match if you want a cost comparison. Speedway has always been 15 minutes of adrenaline fuelled excitement potentially dragged out over 2 hours.....currently its 15 minutes of processional gate and go dragged out and the dragging bit is getting tiresome.
A combination of the tracks, bikes, speed of meetings, and entertainment needs to be improved/addressed...at all venues.
With the speed of meetings Im not necessarily referencing Sheffield as the start to end of a meeting this season has been good, not always the case. Although if on the rare occasion we have an exciting heat lets not leave it almost 10 mins to the start of the next one when everyone has fallen back to sleep. There is no reason why in every single heat, the boys cant cross the line, take in a victory lap and have the 2 mins on immediately, if the worlds top stars can do this at GP's and World Cups then there is no reason it cant happen here. The paying public are there to see the racing not the breaks in between
