SON finals Togliatti Sat/Sun July 20th/21st Live on BT Sport

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Will Tai be fit to ride ?- i expect we will know more when he is a studio guest at the GP this Saturday.

BT Sport are showing it on BT Sport 1 - what i can`t understand is that it seems BSI/IMG haven`t liaised with BT about what time Togliatti time equates to over here- BT are listing that   their coverage starts at 17.45 when the meeting actually starts at 4pm UK time( Togliatti 3 hrs ahead of London with a 19.00 local time start). When they realise they might have to switch channels !!!

On the Sunday BT Sport 1 is showing St Johnstone vs Ross County live from 14.30 (15.00 kick-off). BT Sport 3 doesn't seem to be showing anything so assume the SON will switch to that.

Is this a case of somebody, anybody, nobody etc should have told them? Can one of us get through? Can Philip Rising get through to the powers that be over the start time? If not when they switch on at 17.45 it will be over. Just in time for the result!

It's been advertised as live.  Why the panic.

There is no panic at all- but it would be nice that we don`t record BT sport 1 and then find that because they had the wrong time they have had to switch to another channel. You might just think that if they are advertising it as live, then they know what time the meeting is even if it`s in darkest Russia !!

Don't think I'm too worried about watching  this meeting now as team GB will probably consist of Harris , Cook and Lambert injuries permitting...

Maybe time for a reminder of the rules for final 1 and 2

Final 1 & 2 The Scores from Final day 1 will be added to the scores from Final day 2. (42 Heats) to determine 4th to 7th place in the 2019 SoN. Final 2 will consist of 2 extra heats, a Final Qualifier heat and a Grand Final heat to determine the top 3 of the 2019 SoN.  Heat 43 (Final Qualifier heat) will consist of the 2nd & 3rd placed teams from the 42 qualifying heats. The winning team of the Final Qualifier heat will join the top scoring team in heat 44 the Grand Final heat. The winning team of the Grand Final heat will become 2019 SoN champions. The losing team of the Grand Final heat will become 2019 SoN Runner up. The losing team of the Final Qualifier heat will become 2019 SoN Third Place.

If the Final day 2 is interrupted after heat 21 and cannot continue the same day, the result at the conclusion of heat 21 added to final day 1 scores, will be deemed valid to determine the final results of the meeting. If the meeting is interrupted after heat 22 (Final qualifier heat) and cannot continue the same day, the result at the conclusion of heat 21 added to the final day 1 scores, will be deemed valid to determine the final results of the meeting. heat 22 (Final Qualifier heat) will only be considered to determine 2nd and 3rd place in the final results of the meeting regardless of points scored in the 21 heats.

In respect of the 2 extra heats in  the Final day 2, Final Qualifier heat 43 and Grand Final heat 44, the first choice of gate will go to the higher placed team in the final classification after the conclusion of heat  42.

Final day 1 & 2 2a. In the event of equal points for two teams after the conclusion of the heat 42, the team that scored the most points when the two teams met will be considered the better placed team. 2b. If the tie cannot be decided by 2a. The team scoring the higher number of bonus points will be considered the better placed team. 2c. In the event of equal points for three or more teams, after the conclusion of the qualification heats, the team scoring the higher number of bonus points will be considered the better placed team. 2d. If there still remains a tie, the amount of first, second, third and fourth places in total taken by all riders will decide the better placed team. Zero for last placing is better than being disqualified for whatever reason). 2e. If all other solutions cannot resolve the tie, then the Team with the highest 2019 SoN Ranking will be deemed the better placed Team. 3. If the scores are shared between the two teams taking part in the  Final day 2 heat 43 (Final qualifier heat) the highest ranked team  after  42 heat intermediate classification will progress. If the Grand Final heat 44 ends in a 3-3 then there will be a Run off with one rider from each nation nominated by the team manager to race off for the SoN world championship.
