Sorry this a different post. Ben Barker riding at Somerset in a NL challenge match ? I am confused.

As its only a challenge match each side has been allowed a rider from the Championship, Todd Kurtz guests for the Somerset team.

For some reason I thought he had retired?

Ben is most welcome at B'ham as ZW's replacement ?

But you can't fit him in yet until the 01st July. Personally I wouldn't touch him with the proverbial bargepole. Too much outside garbage attached. There can't be many riders given a testimonial then sacked a little over two month later.

Don't guests need to be declared in a 1-7 of another team ?

With too many stupid rules. Try to explain the rules to new people to the sport. Should be easy to understand but they are not.

But the point being made was that a guest had to be in another teams 1 to 7. That's sensible, as if it wasn't, a team could bring in say a former Premier rider and then that would be be clamped down on and the existing rule installed to stop it happening again. Rules usually have a good reason behind them. Why does every rule have to be explained to new people in the sport anyway. It tends to be just passing on peoples prejudices.

Those are the normal rules but as its a challenge any man or his dog could ride (with the correct licences of course). Im guessing running as a "Championship" level challenge allowed for the non brits to take part despite the meeting standard being far from CL level.
