Doubt it will happen again ?? Sense Somerset has sorted track out Allen has been class in the silverware part of season for both rebels and scorpians ,would have been more points except for bad luck with bike trouble , would have been good to see him coat cook with Somerset dirt in ht 15 , but had to settle with fricke

Yeah. I can't see Allen scoring the same against Poole

Announcer said Jack had oil leak dripping on his exhaust. Gary May said he couldn't use Holder in heat 15. Also said Doyle should be ok for Monday.

The alleged “one line” OTA produced some superb racing again tonight. At the half way point it looked like the meeting could have gone either way. Once again, Craig Cook looked very fast and blasted to a victory over Jason Doyle in heat 6. Its a very long time since Doyle has been beaten  by the length of a straight. Cook looked on fire. 

Interestingly after passing Holder in heat 4;  Cook waved sarcastically at The Aussie on the way back to the pits as Holder went to shake his hand  

Another spectacular first bend pile up, similar to one which occurred a few weeks back, this time involving BWD and Doyle sent Rebels fans hearts in their mouths as both riders were sent hurtling into the air fence. Incredibly, both men eventually got to their feet and walked back to the pits. Doyle looking decidedly dejected with life and BWD resembling  a chimney sweep rather than a speedway rider, his face blackened with shale. 

The Rebels seemed to raise their game in the face of adversity and began to increase their fragile lead. 

Cook’s luck ran out after his first bike suffered the gremlins in the pits, so he jumped on his second bike, which then failed at the start. He was without a functionable bike for heat 15. 

Jack Holder, once again in irresistible form around the Somerset track, literally ‘smoked’ heat 11. His exhaust appeared to be emitting more and more smoke as the laps went on. Rebels fans were left praying that he would complete the four laps as thick smoke poured from his machine. A faulty lead which leaked oil onto his exhaust proved to be the problem and prevented the Aussie taking part in heat 15. 

Heat 15 proved to be another cracking race with the revitalised Jake Allen producing a scorching last to first victory. The young Aussie, using both outside and inside lines to pass, hunted down Max Fricke, before executing a perfect inside pass. His joyous punching of the air salute as he crossed the line, showed how much his victory meant to him. 

On this performance, the Rebels look in terrific shape for the second leg at Bellevue, but also the up coming play off 1st leg against Poole. 

 

“We will smash em” roared a pumped up Garry May in the after match interview, where he confirmed that Jason Doyle will be fit for that match.

As Bagpuss might say Etheridge’s away average was still under two however our friend wants to dress it up and I would suggest Riss  has improved on that even if not by much. I think people might have expected him to score a few more at home than he has done though.

The problem was that Lemmo had to do something as Jay wasn't cutting the mustard especially on our travels, and his low average didn't give us much choice as to who to replace him with.Hindsight is a wonderful thing, pity it's not boxed and freely available.

Up to 5th Sept. Just for comparison.

Home average  Jye…... 5.29.....  Mark 1.60

Away   Jye…. 2.73 …… Mark 4.40               

2018 combined averages  Mark 3.20 ….  Jye 4.29

Mark Riss was signed to pick up points away and Berge at home so in that respect Riss has done his job. Did we expect him to do better than he has, probably and he isn't riding as well now as he was when we first signed him but that is the risk you take with riders at that level.

Mark Riss has 'returned to Germany' and Belle Vue can now use horses for courses at reserve.       Dodgy.

Hmmm. The only way a rider can be brought in. Stinks pretty bad. Only important meetings to come and he is out of the team.

If Poole had pulled this trick the forum would go into meltdown.
