But Workington had the choice as he qualified in 2017 while riding for you but you are a Saturday night race night so that would mean he misses meeting because of the GP's....................................................................................oh! hang on. You have changed  some of your race nights to Fridays so he would be ok for the GP just not practice....................................................Oh wait up again. The BSPA have allowed us to race on Fridays so we could have declared Cookie then had decent guests when he was missing ............................................ Oh wait up again. The BSPA have stopped us racing on a Friday as too many teams are now racing then (3 agreed at the AGM meaning 6 out of 11 teams would be racing) but now that has been stopped as other teams with injured riders need guest to cover.

Jesus, what a sport. I just can't keep up.

I believe Craig at the time just wanted to ride Prem and GPs.

AND it was his average that was too high for the championship . so no choice in the matter prem only 

didnt stop Scott Nichols tho  and now the bspa/scb are running scared . rabbits in headlights . they can see , but the dont know what direction to take !

ruined a good sport by not writing rules down in a book .

 it was confirmed early in the winter he could ride championship but they had an unwritten rule about gp riders i think. Plus, he also had a Champs average, which was why Nicholls was discriminated against, nothing to do with averages.

You don't need a toothbrush just take them out put your teeth in a glass overnight with a good cleaning solution and put them back in in the morning.

 

No need to beg for stamps will save you the hassle.

Maybe not you but certain ones have not let us down , you are having a fantastic season I agree and it is good to see and long may it continue.

As for Craig Cook I have said that it actually makes us weaker and I stand by that , at least we have a seven man team again so will have to wait and see how it goes.

I am a big fan of Craig, he had a much better GP in the last round, really hope he pushes on , looking forward to seeing him at Cardiff in front of his own crowd

Well, from an Edinburgh fan..... unlike some from the East..... I wish Craig good luck at Glasgow. He needs to be able to earn a living and he’s not going to do that and compete in the GP (and support a new baby) with a few meetings for BelleVue.  It was a no brainer financially.

It will be tough to see him in Tiggers kevlars but heyho, life goes on
