This might sound stupid... But what counts as professional experience? Is it certain leagues count as professional and some don't?

That’s right, for example here the PL and CL are professional leagues, the NDL isn’t. Other countries’ structures will have the same distinctions.

Ivacic rode in Polish League 2 last season for Bydgoszcz. Skorja is probably a better bet though (he also rides in Poland lge 2)

I'm not sure that will be the case with the rolling averages that they use. It depends on what scores they drop from last season. Simon has been there or thereabouts with his average so far this month. His GSA for May actually increased on his start of season figure despite his scores being below par. Max's scores have dropped off a bit this month. It'll be close.

 

There's almost a point between them now.

With no more fixtures ths month, a think Simon will drop to reserve with about a 3.5 ave.

Any thoughts of trying to bring in a 4 pointer to replace him, would have to be acted on sharp.

Not sure how many changes need to be made, but with the points limit how it is,,, do you swap 'like for like', one at a time, or 2/3 together ?

A redeclaration could prove fatal.

Always been a big fan, and I feel really sorry for him, but he just can't ride Brough

I feel sorry for Lambert .. he's trying but Brough is just not his track

Bjerre - no sympathy for ....  remains an enigma but in 6 home meetings he has shown no ability to master the track - which we did fear at the start of the season .... 

Philips - cant fault his heart or effort  .... but just aint good enough im afraid

changes need to be made - but who is available is another matter

Lasse Bjerre just looks slow sometimes. 

You would think his brother could help getting him dialled into BP.

If Lasse and Lambert left could we bring in Newman with Clegg at no.2? (Sorry, I'm not being lazy...I'm in the Lake District with very iffy internet...God only knows when this will reach the board).

Nope. My understanding of the rules is that if we are over the limit (which we are) then it is like for like. For example if you drop Simon ( 4.2 )and Danny ( 2.00 ) you can only bring in another 4.2 or under and another 2.00. You can't bring in 2 x 3.00 pointers. You could bring in Newman as a straight swap for Bjerre but would you really want to? Kyle seems to be really struggling these last two seasons Birmingham managed to bring in Ellis and Stoneman because their overall revised team total was still under 38.00. 

Not sure who you would get to fill Danny's shoes should you make that change. Glasgow haven't replaced Chessell yet, and Scunthorpe have turned to Joe Lawlor to possibly fill their vacant two point slot.

Jed List was out on track last night again and looked okay, but his times were nearer the 68.0 to 69.0 mark (about a second a lap slower than the average time during the meeting). 

Lasse just needs to get his bike issues sorted out, and quick. (People forget that when Kenneth first signed for us he was rubbish for the first three months, then outstanding from about June onwards).

I would take that risk and it has to be remembered the times could come down, given more practice and advice on how to ride our track. He certainly attacks the track, bike pops a bit and gearing sounds too low. We have nothing to lose IMO, Simon is not doing what he was appointed to do and List could improve with more track time. Something has to change.

I think putting Jedd out with Josh last night, was a bit of a yardstick.

I get what your saying there, but wasn't Kenneth 'newish' ???,,, whereas Lasse has been around a while and, av thought Lasse has been ok upto now, but was pants last night,,, maybe still not right since the Glasgow match ?

Also if you look at the time he recorded in that race with Josh it was still 4 seconds slower than the reserves race.  Even if you say it was not a competitive race, 4 seconds is still a lot.
