Not exactly overwhelmed but looking forward to seeing what he can do.

Have to disagree.

although Damian is not a high profile Pole , he has a good pedigree and becomes another Belle Vue asset.

Building a good asset base should be the aim of any forward looking promotion.

I wish Damian good luck.

That's good to hear, I don't really follow Polish speedway too closely so as hyderd said it is more because he is an unknown quantity. It will be interesting to see how he goes....if he hits the ground running at the NSS then overseas clubs might start to look at us as a softer landing place for their young talent which could be helpful.

Welcome to Belle vue Damian.

Mixed feelings, Damian for me is the key to the team if he settles and does well in the Premier league we will do well if he struggles then so could the team so he is a big gamble.He should do ok at Belle vue but his away form could be a problem.On top of that with this team the new reserve will have to do a lot lot better than Smith to justify the swap in the minds of a good few Aces fans.

The safer way I m o would have been to keep Smith who was improving towards the end of last season and signed a rider like Hougaard/L Bjerre etc giving us a very strong top 5 and a strong reserve in Bewley and let Smith keep improving as the season went on. A move that could possibly be made if things go wrong but then the new reserve will lose out as well time will tell. Lets hope the management know more than I do as in this case I would love to be proved wrong.

Last year Drozdz averaged 5.54 riding as a reserve in the top Polish league. We shall have to see how he adapts to riding in the UK but he obviously has the potential to do well. 

It was obviously an option to keep Smith and sign a higher average rider in the top 5 but some teams are signing stronger reserves this year and Mark Lemon has decided that this is the way for us to go as well.

The play off system gives teams a chance to see how things are working out and to make changes if needed.

Let's hope manage to get a good reserve in.

I wonder if we are looking abroad for the reserve person ?

Depends if you call Workington, and an Aussie based in Edinburgh, "looking abroad".

Bewley and Etheridge are the reserves.

Drodz is a good rider but let’s see what he can do when you aren’t riding with Drabik, Magic, Tai. He rode in a team where arguably 6 riders could be GP riders. 

 

Solid at home. Struggle away. 

 

Lets how he goes at the bouncy castle!!!

I would be sure that Lemo has seen something special in DD. As an ex rider he would know what to look for & how he should adapt to U.K. tracks. Fact is Belle Vue is a track every rider would love as their home track if circumstances permitted, the aces will be up there in 2018 for certain.
