    Buxton v Brummies NT Sun 8th July

    shouldn't young riders trying to make their mark be willing to ride anywhere for anyone?
  2. I've never understood this rule going back to the World Cup... don't the Under 21s have a competition of their own? So why compulsory in the senior version?

    We have a squad of 6 riders so will work around it.

    Clark Osborne wasn't involved in your stadium... hate to be cynical everybody, but as a Reading fan I feel I'm entitled...

    Sdl Squads

    At the start of the season each team is allowed 1 nl rider up to 4.00 ave. He is eligible for the season, ie Luke Harris, who averaged under 4 and was dropped by Eastbourne last year... when Reading approached him late last year he was very much a rider who could have gone either way and needed rides. Also allowed is a 3.00 nl rider, ie Nick Laurence. Kyle Roberts also agreed to ride late last year and there was no sign of him getting an NL place until Brum signed him 3 weeks ago. You're correct, the 3 can't be used in the same line up. William O'Keefe was actively looking for more rides to go alongside mdl. He is only getting guest rides in nl and we didn't know he would get so many. It is about development and the Reading team is full of riders with real prospects of developing, but admittedly we do need to be competitive if we are to get the diminishing number of Reading fans to take this to their hearts.
  7. The Reading Racers roar into competitive action for the first time in eight and a half years on May 27th, in their inaugural match in the recently formed Southern Development League. The Racers will race at Eastbourne - where they will be staging their home matches this year against the Devon Demons, after the main Eastbourne v Plymouth National League match. With Racers No.2 Nick Laurence riding for Lakeside in the NL the same night, and Niall Strudwick unavailable, 17 year old Stephen Whitehouse is drafted in to complete the line-up. The match ends a long awaited track return for Racers fans, who have been without competitive Speedway since their home track was reclaimed by the council for demolition back in 2008. The Reading Speedway Action Group have worked hard in the past year to raise the funds to cement a place in official competition for the Racers once again. Team Managers Mat Stevens and Gene Carter are confident that the group have assembled a team capable of upholding the good reputation of the Racers name, with high hopes of helping the riders to make the next step up in their Speedway careers.

  8. Where can I watch it from within uk? Except BT obviously...
  9. Is Jamie Couzins named in an NL side?

    Surely it's only a matter of time before Osborne finds there's someone waiting for him when he gets home one night..? He just lies, then wrecks whatever he can that will make him money.
  11. Congratulations to all qualifiers, particularly Luke Harris, who must surely be the least expected out of the 10.

    I don't need to mention Reading do I?

    There has never been any confusion over where Reading will ride... the track on which they rode their only meeting last year is the answer, and I'm surprised it's not common knowledge. Once the SDL has been finalised by the SCB, all the announcements will be made.
  14. Where were you sitting? I was in the grandstand but not on the line so won't argue but I didnt hear anybody else questioning it. Usually Theres an audible "gasp" when a ref gets it so wrong but I heard nothing.
