Riding at 2 or 4 doesn't neccesarily make you a second string rider if your average is that of a heat leader.

Ivan Mauger sometimes rode at number 2 for Exeter as a tactic to give him a ts ride later in the match if required in KO Cup matches. It didn't make him a second string rider.

Nobody has ever said that.

What is being said is riding at 2 or 4 is a hell of a lot easier than riding at 5 and will make a significant difference to your average.

Wrong.

Gavan made the initial comment his average was achieved as a second strong,  and has since clarified that remark.

Anybody any idea when the last 4 will be announced ?

Fricke     Drozdz   Bewley  &  Etheridge or Kurtz or Pickering will do for me.

Personally I would like to of seen Cook....Worrall...Fricke....Tungate....KK....Bewley....Smith. Perhaps they tried, but KK priced himself out,  hence Smith's place was forfeited to fit Drodz and a higher averaged reserve.

I did suggest that it was ceased being discussed but the usual suspect continued discussing it.

I see he has done the sensible to move it to the Wolves thread to bore people there. 

I'm glad you have your thread back tho.  :wink:
