Wait, what, how??? 

Did not see that one coming! Hope he can get dialed in around Ashfield sharpish though. 

Greaves is a good signing too. What average is he coming in on? 

 

All the best for Ritchie, he'll pick up another championship ride no bother. 

Hope to see Lewis back to fitness soon too he was good to watch around Glasgow. 

"Ritchie"?

No wonder he's left!

This is only my best and very rough guestimate of the team with averages, based on the proposed change.

Cook 10.4 ( 8pt PL ave x 1.3)

Greaves 4.77 (taken from GS dated 04.07)

Vissing 7.45

Starke 5.64

Harris 8.13

Sargeant 3.88

Thomas 2.31

Total is 42.58?

Unless someone, or a few, could point out where I have went wrong!?

So have the gp rider rules changed?  Or is it just being ignored? Or has a brown envelope fallen on the bspa table?.

We had to wait until Giro week to do the deal.

 

Tried for a concession on the fee.

But will even Cookie put new bums on seats ( or feet on the terraces ) or even old ones returning, for more than a week or two?

Changes are subject to BSPA approval. Press release also says Cook approached Glasgow as not doing enough meetings.

Changes were overdue, though IMO Harris should have walked having invested little into his time at Glasgow other than regularly looking down at his unreliable engines when he doesnt gate. There is a high chance he will retire at the end of the season especially with the Rye House situation and thats not likely to be a motivator. Allegedly we werent the only Tigers chasing Grajczonek last month and it was CH that was to go, having never settled at Ashfield.

So its a welcome to Nathan Greaves, no easy task to go out with Cook at No2.

Wonder if lakeside or Peterborough  would be allowed to sign a go rider 

Or Workington sign a go rider that's not cookie 

As the rules were no go riders in championship  unless they rode for the championship team at time of qualifying for gp and resigned the following season 

Money talks again 

This is a bigger scandals than ged rathbone taking payment to let holder race in Poland

I’m going to say the bottom two. 

Last throw of the money by the looks of it with this move.
