Leicester Lions 2018

Nothing to laugh at. It's a fair assessment. Thank god it isn't stupid like a 7 for The GP rider Lindback. That really was laughable.

 

Indeed, based on the effort shown he put in he should have been re-assessed on 3.00. :D

After years of hearing all sorts of garbage from the previous owner/promoter since joining the top league, but actually ending up with teams composed mainly of leftovers and waiting and waiting for riders to be announced, I for one am delighted the new ownership has "jumped the gun" by announcing the signing of Martin Vaculik at such an early stage.

I'm not including Jason Doyle in the "leftovers" category when he was signed from Birmingham, but he wasn't a GP rider at that stage and left due to the intransigence of the owners.

The signing makes a statement, to the Leicester supporters and the rest of the league. We're not going to be the whipping boys any more. And we don't need charity handouts from the 1 over 8 fiasco.

 

And, I'd much rather have a Plumber as club owner than a Hairdresser.

I think Leicester have made a real solid start to team building where will josh come in the main body ? i think its imperative to have a strong reserve pairing if you look at most teams good form it was when a strong rider dropped in the 6 or 7 slot

As expected, Josh Bates returns

Come on Leicester, secure the services again of Newman. Popular with the fans, a 100% rider, who's good on home & away tracks.

Until someone can officially be assured of the assessed averages of incoming riders, how on earth can we have any idea of Leicesters potential lineup.

 

Confirmed: Bates 5.52

 

Probable. E Riss 5.75, Nilsson 7.13, Newman 4.86
If as confirmed Vaculik starts on 9.00 & Pieszczek on 5.00
It leaves 5.24 for the final member of the team. Lewis Kerr, Jake Allen & Paul Starke are the only signings that mean Pieszczek would start the season at reserve, which surely must be the plan?

Pieszczek will be a 7.00.

If Pieszczek is going to be a 7.00 rider then I would go with ...

 

Vaculik 9.00

Bates 5.52

Pieszczek 7.00

King 6.66

Nilsson 7.13

Newman 4.86

AN Other to fit .... 2.33 max

 

Cheers .....

Decent side. Will do much better than previous seasons and do well at home.

 

On another note has the other bend been done this winter?

The major work widening bends 3 & 4 were done the year before 1 & 2.

I think the plans is just to get them smoother this winter.
