Stupid then as all 6 would benefit. They will not be sacked or fined as they are the stars. One gets sacked all strike.

As i posted the other day , the new TV contract is for mega money and with all 4 matches each round shown live they couldn`t all be on Sunday without a clash between the 2 broadcasters, so Friday was chosen. Some posters who supported the Extraleague decision pointed out that is only 2 GP`s- however that could rise to 8 with re-arranged matches because of rain-offs(last Friday was one of those) so we are up to 3 and counting. i also said that i believe the FIM did not want to wage war with the Extraleague for fear of the riders pulling out of the GP en mass !!

I doubt that would happen. They all have aspirations to be the world champion.

The Polish clubs pay so big money- i believe it would certainly  have. The Extraleague believe that they can do almost anything they want to- they even fell out with the Polish federation(PZM) over fixture scheduling.

AMONGST all this nonsense arguing with a 'Polish' idiot, terrific SGP to start the 2019 campaign. Fabulous advert for the sport but sadly few if any other than Cardiff will match the atmosphere ion Warsaw.

Our Polish friend will disappear if no one takes the bait.  Ignore and he'll get bored.

Who is a mathematician?  How did the draw work for the riders.  I know Zagar was fasted but 1st pick did him no good.

I have been scrolling back the pages and reading posts that Zmarzlik isn't polish and don't know what else, I got a headache and will ask here directly. 

What are those  "bike A B and C" in tv graphics before heat start?

Each rider has 3 bikes available to them during the night. Each one of those has a transponder on it.

The graphic is just telling you which of their bikes they have been using so you know if they switched bike. 

For example, Emil started on one bike, switched to another for his second ride but then went back to the first one. 

There did seem to be some inconsistency in the graphics with some riders not having all their races shown.

It was strange bacause when Iversen rode his 4th heat had 5 letters Woffy in the same heat had only 2 letters.   Bwooo

Yeah, that's the inconsistency that I mentioned. I couldn't work out why that was happening...

Another great evening in Warsaw. Atmosphere brilliant until the second semi final when it all went relatively quiet. What odds was Madsen?, should have invested a zloty or even two.

Pleased to see Iversen up there after last year's injury, but we'll done Robert Lambert.

Not sure if anyone else noticed, but the new timing system or graphics didn't work well in heat 19.

I was interested to see how close it was recorded between Emil and Leon. The results given were:

Bartosz Smektala 56.829

Leon Madsen +0.192

Emil Sayfutdinov +0.337

Max Fricke +0.397

I'm guessing that the actual gap between Leon and Emil was the one shown as between Emil amd Max, given the fact Max was sitting in the pits...So where did the time for Leon come from???

Madsen was 12/1 at the semi final stage

But there are several Poles in GP and ONE Brit (as i said Tai is as British as a Negro in Poland is Polish) 

So by that logic Antonio Lindback isn't Swedish ?
