Well that was a superb evenings entertainment. The noise in the stadium for the final race was deafening. Add the perfect weather and lots of different beers to chose from and Warsaw is an an event you can’t miss if you have the opportunity. Well done Tai, but Lindgren and Laguta were special too. Cook seemed to ride a different track to all the others in one heat, just hope his confidence isn’t damaged by riding against the real stars of the sport.

Do you think we might struggle to qualify if we don't go for the absolute best around the NSS? Surely the best for Wrocław is what we should be picking, unless we plan to fake some injuries after the semi final.

We probably won’t be the only ones.By any means necessary as Malcom X said

Very good GP to start the series. What a shame the Czech GP is next. Gaters paradise at the Marketa.

Some excellent racing with Holder doing very well.  Thought Woffindens childish behaviour was very poor before the final.

Perhaps his "childish" behaviour is a reflection of the happy place he is in with birth of his daughter. Also the laugh and 

joke he had with Magic before the gate selection was a way both relieved the tension before the race where they both

performed brilliantly. They both showed the place to be serious is out on the track.

Really don't understand why so many moan about Woffinden.

Pity there are not more Brits like it.

Good meeting and cracking final ride from Tai that deserved the win. Good advert for the sport and what a great crowd

Ill be controversial and say I thought the referee had a good meeting too. Consistent re starts and took his time to make sure of his decisions

He was always going to be way out of his depth, I want him to do well but fear what we saw tonight could be the norm, my pre season fear was how a poor GP series could impact negatively on his BV form, we saw last season after a poor Cardiff and WC that negative impact. His club form hasn,t really taken off yet either.

He made some good gates ,but whereas that was good enough for him in the Championship in GB it means nothing in GP ,got swamped every 1st lap.He did qualify to ride in the GP and deserves his chance.Not in the same league as Harris at his best and he struggled.He is not a youngster either.Good Luck to him though.

We are all supporting him but on last nights showing he will be last in every GP.      He led one race but wouldn't put his bike anywhere near where a challenge was coming from.   Compare with Tai in his semi final.   He could have been hit from behind or clipped wheels and sent tumbling.  If Cook is to succeed he have to show a willingness to get into tough situations.    Riding safe will see him fail.  How much does he want it ?

Total crap Cook was put in positions that he has never been put in before ok he come second best but he would of learned an awful lot.Mark can you remember Tai in his maiden GP season?????  he was p....  poor but he learned and got stronger learning as he went along.

APART from taking an eternity to exclude Jason Doyle for touching the tapes when it was obvious from the first replay that he had done so.

A good GP, few races strung out, but all that was forgot by the brave riding from those who wanted the win.  Laguta had a fast bike, and will need it as there are certain situations he doesnt go into like a few of the more successful riders. This year, like last year, I am rooting for Freddie. I hope he keeps it clean, but he certainly seems to be  man on fire and goes for it, and all despite that bad injury to his neck late last summer. I hope he safely finishes the business this year and gets a medal - preferably gold - its in him for sure.
