2019 Sgp Qualifiers

Recommended Posts

I think you are either being too positive or exaggerating the quality of what riders we have in this country. For instance, if you can name a dozen British riders better than either Zagar (Slovenia) or Lebedevs (Latvia) you are doing well.

2) Steve Worrall 11+2

3) Rory Schlein 10(+2)+1

4) Ben Barker 11(+3)+0

I wonder if the ACU (presumably Tony Steele) even requested any more than three places ?

Was there even a debate within the CCP or did the 'same again' just go through on the nod ?

Lebdevs you're right, I was being a bit flippant but Zagar won't be in the qualifiers, so in reality I could name about 20 Brits ahead of anything Slovenia could send.

And do you know why they were knocked back to three, when weaker nations were given more?

I would think its a certaintity that Zagar WILL be in the qualifiers- he did this year and im sure will do the same next. Edited by racers and royals

This was discussed earlier and moominman also pointed to that direction. I think I was one of the first to say on here, that FMN's reputation of hosting meetings was taken in to consideration. Which in fact I thought would work in favour of ACU.

 

But honestly, I have know idea why you not get 4 or 5 slots.

We didnt get 4 or 5 slots because beyond BWD our depth is poor.

GB however is a different story 😉

Happy 100 birthday FSP!
