Anyone know why he lost his place in the Leicester team last season? He seems to have looked pretty decent tbf. 

Think Leicester changes were done with cost cutting in mind, once Vaculik & King got injured their season was over.

Think you’re always going to get inconsistencies with the Poles over here, even the very top ones have tracks and meetings that they just don’t go well on/in. 

Even Gollob had some absolute stinkers, especially at Wolves. 

All in all though it’s a signing I’m pleased with. He won plenty of races in his spell here last year with Leicester so that’s a good sign considering he was seeing tracks for the first time. 

Cant say I know about his riding style, but Louis and Ritchie Hawkins seem to think he’ll be a crowd pleaser and entertaining so that’s always a positive.

Think he was dropped through no thought of is own due to the dreaded numbers game when Scott Nicholls arrived

Anyway welcome lad, by my calculations that leaves 13.48 left for the last two

Yes, he was the fall guy when we made en mass changes in one go. Most fans were sad to see him go. Very professional, top notch bikes, first class gating, and was only going to get better. You have got a rider with lots of potential. Only downsides, forgets to look for team mate on the outside at times and not keen on an interview in English.

IMHO he is a good signing.

Form and confidence seemed to fall off a cliff after looking like a potential heat leader early doors. Started to be a bit of a hazard to team mates. Probably true that cost-cutting was also a factor. But he does really need to work on his English.

I would think the last two are Nicholls and Tungate, looks a solid team.

13.81 left....

Tungate 7.69 Leaves 6.12.... Nicholls more than that....

Krystian was certainly a racer when in the right frame of mind - also very good out of the gate especially from the outside gates ..... seemed a bit nervous if another rider gave him a shove or two but it was early days at Leicester - pleased he is back in GB ......

Depending on the last two signings King's Lynn may pip you lot to the 'Wooden Spoon'.

It's ok going strength in depth but you do realise you're only supposed to be in this league to make the numbers up, not to try and be competitive :lol:;)

I thought they would both fit with British rider discount.

I didn't say he would ride for someone else, I merely suggested that it is a possibility which you can't comprehend and if in the unlikely event he ever rode in England again he would only ever ride for Belle Vue.  I don't believe any rider would refuse to ride for another team because of his undying love for Belle Vue!

The 13.81 is after discounts so far

Scott I think is 6.64 and may not qualify for the reduction anyway

Tungate and Scott about half a point over

Now replace Tungate with Woffy or Iversen and Scott fits :lol:
