That's one hell of a crack of the whip.

I think having Connor Mountain in for James Sarjeant will be to their advantage, especially as he represents Coventry on that very circuit.

Pleased to see Scott Nicholls (and the others of course) regain a SGB Premiership place.

Nicholls for Bjerre - yepp

Auty for Pieszczek - not sure at this stage but Auty is riding well this season

Robson for Kurtz - yepp ( based on his last BP showing )

Mountain for Sarjeant - not sure but does have BP experience and should mean we go through less sets of tapes....  Well that gets my vote

 

Cheers - onwards and upwards !

A solid team now but a lack of heat winners. Auty is having a fabulous season but it’s a gaters track and he’s not a gater! I thought Pieszcek was having a good debut season, even if he’s ran into a bit of dodgy form. Mountain has proven himself at BP this season though so he should do well in heat 2s.

Big changes! Seems to have lost it’s starting power packed look and gone down the cheaper British route.

The Pole deserved longer imho.

Nicholls isn’t a number one anymore but then Bjerre has hardly been riding like one either. Auty for Krystian is an odd one although it can’t be denied that Auty has been having a much improved season in the 2nd tier. But in the main body of the team?

Replacing the reserves tho is a no brainier plus Robbo at reserve is an obvious move for any club.

Still surprising move tho.

i wonder if the 2 maximum changes brigade are going to be as critical on this as they are on Poole?

Well you can't accuse the owners/promoters of dragging their feet or being afraid to wield the big axe!

Good luck to Connor - very pleased to see him pick up another club so quickly even if 'home' is the same track

Completely bizarre. Whatever happened to having a team of riders the fans could relate to? 

And to think that this is the club who once went an entire season using the same 7 riders in every match.

Just as a matter of interest. Does the club that wins the league receive any financial reward for doing so ? Trophy, Leauge Title, £----------------------

Is anyone left from the original 1-7?

Edit - so only Hans Andersen left.  That is shocking and not good for fans surely.  It shows ambition but at what cost? Time will tell.

Surely axing the Pole was a financial decision Steve he has been up and down but generally has done well he has ability as well.

1 Hans Andersen 7.42

2 Stuart Robson 5.52

3 Charles Wright 6.19 

4 Ricky Wells 7.09

5 Scott Nicholls 7.35 

6 Josh Auty 4.82

7 Connor Mountain 2.79

 

suprised if these averages are correct they didn't keep Kurtz at reserve instead of Mountain or even kept Pieszczek instead of Auty and gone with a 2.00 like Max Clegg making Robbo a reserve. 

 

1 Hans Andersen 7.42

2 Kristian Pieszczek 6.50
