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:

Doesn't Heeps use his converted Championship average?

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. 

Don’t recall what stinker you are referring to at Wolves?

i remember his debut at Monmore and it took him 6 laps to work out the best lines. Then he was majestic after that.

He attained a Premiership average in 2018 so think that is valid

As always we wont find out until the teams are rarified by the powers that be 

Edit - Im gonna leave rarified in even though I meant ratified :)

13.81 left....

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

Nicholls average from 2018 was 6.64  and apparently  he does not get 2.5 %  British reduction  .

As Does Tungate & Good Riss....

Less of the "good Riss". I'm hoping he's spoken for :wink:

I thought it was his latest or last average and as he didn't ride all season in the premiership I thought the championship average would apply.

Notwithstanding any British % reduction the 'final' 2018 averages (according to BSPA website) show the Ippo 2019 signings as:-

Lawson   6.72      (6.55 with reduction)

King          6.52      (6.36      "     "             )

Pieszczek 6.50

Heeps       4.72

Allen          4.56

making 29.02 , ( 28.69) leaving 13.48 (or 13.81) for the last 2.

Tomasz struggled around wolves always going too wide exiting bend 2. Belle Vue was another dodgy one for him and yet he was absolutely superb around Eastbourne.

Which is why I can't class him (as some do) as one of the very best ever.

Certainly up there on tracks that suited.. but for me, the very best rode EVERY track at a very high standard.

That's not a knock on Gollob, one of the most entertaining riders of all time.. just that he's a level below the Nielsens, Rickardssons, Olsens, Maugers etc
