    Eastbourne v Plymouth (NL)

    I'll say. A guest No1, two second strings and (hoping the riders involved will forgive the expression) a rag-tag collection of 3 pointers. Plymouth's injury list is approaching epic proportions

    Boxall given 2 year ban refusing drug test

    Perhaps a bit like Danny Bird who never paid his fine and therefore his ban has continued indefinitely. That said, has Boxall been fined? Shocking waste of talent

    That would mean 7 lap races at Plymouth!

    Kent vs Plymouth

    What? With the 5 riders available to them?

    Kent vs Plymouth

    I'd have thought that the curfew kicking in was to Kent's advantage as the home track advantage has maximum effect early in the meeting, surely? I can't see past a comfortable Kent win in any event

    Torquay United FC new stadium!

    The sad thing is that Torquay FC haven't sussed what's coming

    What ever happened to team riding?

    World Championship Pairs

    Clearly team riding in the true sense of the expression is a lost art. Astonishing that so many of the world's top riders are unable to practise it or as we saw last evening to defeat it. Looking over your shoulder as you approach the line on lap 4 does NOT mean you are team riding. Yet - GB apart - that was what we got from most of the 'teams'. Like several other contributors have already said, it had me on my feet yelling at the TV. A wonderful display of sublime skill by Tai and Robert!

    Farewell Brandon - A Video Fly By

    Thank you Sotonian for adding the link to the soft copy as I only had hard copy (the newspaper) to hand.

    Farewell Brandon - A Video Fly By

    Did anyone else read the article in todays Mail on Sunday (page 75)? Sadly far too late to help Brandon, but might just ring an alarm bell somewhere and save a speedway track from extinction

    Plymouth 2018

    And you can tell us all this with just 3 riders named?

    Barncoose Boy? A lovely gentleman - if Dean is correct in this, RIP Godfrey
