Eastbourne 2018

Recommended Posts

As an occasional visitor to Arlington where I always enjoy the racing in spite of the track being a bit one sided, the Dugards always seem

to make good choices. I shall miss the excitement of Jake Knight and I'm not sure that Baseby is a good enough No 1, but he IS a very

capable performer. The Eagles strength this year, for me, is in their bottom 3. Kelsey a better rider than his average and Edwards one of

the better newcomers and with Brooks on the verge of a breakthrough. Top 3 IMO

Really hope the toilets can be updated this year with all the colour scheme and rebrand etc it must be a good idea surely to do it in one big go?

it could be done really cheaply as well , to upgrade the toilets on the 3rd bend would just need a bar of soap .

If this is true and I cannot confirm it, then the visitors ( in plain English) are

Jake Knight

Matt Bates

Alfie Bowtell

Luke Harris

Ben Hopwood

Matt Saul

Dan Gilkes

An interesting side with a lot of 'racers' but since when were Bowtell and Gilkes former eagles?

Will be a really good work out for this years team with no real home track advantage and a lot to see with Brooks and Gilkes the rookies and Edwards who we know well over the last 6 or 7 years to compare them with.

I wanted Jake at No1 this year although I agree Mark will be a better captain and counsellor so there should be three interesting races between them.

No its not, Forman IT team for this season will wreck that team.

Don't think the result for this one is in too much danger. Needed Knight, Bailey & Hopwood to make a spectacle of it. Whilst Gilkes is a talented developing rider i think the current Eastbourne reserves will batter the challengers and the result will be decided from the 6&7 berths
