Don't think it's got anything to do with Belle Vue as such. Ipswich are out the Play-Offs and he's been garbage for Belle Vue so I think Riss has cut his losses and gone home. He's withholding his services, 28 day ban, guests for both clubs. What it absolutely does do is strengthen Belle Vue substantially, King's Lynn will be in for a tough time.

 Riss is under contract and obligated to ride. Other clubs have riders who fly in just for their meetings. Woryna and Jakobsen at Poole for starters.

Its a tactical move by the BV promotion. Simple as that. They call it tactical. I say its cheating. No changes after August 15th. Those are the rules.

Not allowed to bring back a rider axed in the same season.

Mark lemon should be sacked for the stupid decisions he has made this season Riss was sacked from Edinburgh for poor form signed with Ipswich has a couple of good meetings and he is premiership standard. Then goes crap again and now disappears. Not a professional sportsman in my eyes.

Why? We are not meeting them but Kings Lynn are. But I am sure their fans will just roll over and except any explanation / BS from Lemon as gospel. -_-

Feel for the lad and I hope he sorts his ankle and comes back stronger next year. No real adequate cover out there but it’s no loss as our goose was cooked when Dan was injured. Some sort of luck still with us. 

 

Having said all this I’m hoping Mark doesn’t do an Andersen and ride abroad whilst claiming to be injured in the UK as that would be cheating.

I heard he injured his ankle in a crash (at Ipswich?) and then aggravated it when thrice being a victim of the horror track, which looked like ending his season. He's hardly scored a point since the horror track got him.

 

How sick to laugh at a post about injured riders (yet again), even scb didn't do that→→→→→→↘

He's decided to take a break from the sport after a difficult few weeks that have involved a series of crashes which have knocked his confidence and affected his scoring.This is according to the Ipswich website.So he is not injured just lacking in confidence.So as Daniel Smith say's he is withholding his services.Probably a clever move by Belle Vue,who know's.I'm sure Eric could enlighten the Lynn promotion:rolleyes:

There most certainly is cover out there for him at present,especially for the 1st leg which is in September,maybe different for the 2nd leg which is in October.

The 5% rule is only for the 1-5 I have been informed... So no Auty, which is good. He would of been big at the NSS.. But rules are rules and  did Riss withhold his services or was he sent packing.. Who knows. 

 I can't see much of an advantage away for BV. But Riss had a home ave of 1.66 :blink:

You must be use to these kind of changes at the business end of the season.Normally you would say it was ok though:wink:

I know he can't sign but I can't find a rule that says he can't be a guest rider.
