so holders situation is out in the open 

but no mention of what that situation is apart from personal situation stopping him riding in uk 

does that also include the gp at cardif ? 

Wouldn't think it will affect him riding in Cardiff.

Agreed, so what’s the actual reason for him not riding in the U.K.? Or is it a secret handshake deal only for people in the know?

He doesn’t have a work permit plus personal issues which are frankly none of our business.

If Holder couldnt ride for Australia in the Speedway of Nations why would he be allowed to ride in Cardiff ?

Didn't think that was the issue, thought Lemon selected Fricke ahead of Holder, presumably as Fricke rides for the two clubs who hosted the events.

Not true - and nothing on his twitter!!

Everyone who applies for a UK work permit/visa needs to have their application 'sponsored' or supported usually by the employer before it can be processed. It also requires no other 'complications/objections/issues' to be part of it.

The employer for the GPs is BSI who I am told submit a 'block' application for all GP riders.  That may not be 100% correct but its part of what I'm told!

He was in the UK at the SON so must have had a passport surely?

That was put on the forum last week wasn't it.Phillip Rising i think put that on one of the threads,possibly the SON thread.

And he was at the Motocross at Winchester too. 

Maybe he's an 'illegal' and jumped on a lorry at Calais?! :party:
