No there wasnt one line, there wewre several, but they were all over the shop, certainly no consistancy in that track. All the riders didnt know where they were they just had to guess. And putting a dirt line up the inside of turn 2 if that was  deliberatly done, they were taking a hell of a chance, hit one of those ruts or pick up drive at the wrong time they would have ended up on the M5..alone with several others.
I believe, and know Somersets track has been better, it was a fair meeting but imo its not the same as it was for whatever reason.

One of your better posts Starman and I totally agree with you.I didn't think it was great either and the track was very patchy.Poole rode it well and I think they will now go through to the final.

Brady showed what he can do when not up against the World Champion.  He won't be up against him as much in the home leg as new averages are effective from 1st October so his confidence should improve riding down the order and on a track that has been prepared for the riders..

Back to last night I'm not sure why in heat 15 Poole didn't have Josh and Nicolai as they'd already ridden as a pair in 3 earlier heats scoring 4-2; 4-2; and 3-3.

Still well done to both teams.

I think he did well enough in heat 13 to get a heat 15 ride, it was a toss up between the 3 and I fully understand going with Klindt as he would fly out of gate one and battle, nobody in our team could of beaten Doyle in heat 15 and we have put Josh in heat 15 against Somerset before and he came last .  If Brady had gated I think he would have beaten Holder as he did in heat 13. I thought moving Josh to number 3 worked and you are right as a pair Klindt and Josh work well together. Not sure if having Harris at number one will help much in the return leg and the track should suit him better, he did look slow but when he gated he was able to  ride cleverly to get the win.

There are far worse people on here then Shovlar. he purely writes to get a reaction which is the definition of a troll.............i react , rightly or wrongly and then just get accused of trolling myself.

Peoples personal issues should never be brought into the forum thats where the line is crossed. Ive never seen eye to eye with Starman, and still at times his posts are a bit strange, but never would i lower myself to comment on his personal and health issues

Cos 95% of your posts on Poole threads are negative and you accuse Poole of things that you wouldn't accuse other teams of if they had done it.

Of course you wouldn't, you'd probably just leave a little 'cryptic' reference here and there.

It would be even more fitting if we win it in our 90th consecutive season.:D

Unfortunately, Bewley's injury has probably put it beyond our grasp but who knows?
