On the Eastbourne website you can find a report on the league match at home v Glasgow back in May. Accidents galore, especially by the sounds of it during the first 5 or 6 heats, plus the serious injuries suffered by Brennan in heat 12, by which time the overall incidents rate looked to have dropped. Subsequent comments by Eastbourne management were putting the fault for the successive run of defeats at that time squarely down to riders' poor on track decision-making.

But I bet that match and the number of incidents, especially early on, had lingered in the minds of Cook and perhaps also other riders and they arrived at Arlington with minds already on high alert.

If that's correct, surely the other riders bans have to be lifted too?

An absolutely crazy situation to allow one rider to have his ban lifted but not the other.

An absolute farce of a decision.

What new evidence got presented to mean Cook's appeal was valid and not Vissing's?

I guess it was down to who was representing the riders' cases, and how well their case was put.

I wonder if the SCB have lifted this or the BSPA? If so then sounds like involvement from the chairman.

BSPA can't make changes to SCB matters.

Pure speculation here, but possibly Cook had access to corporate lawyers via the Glasgow club to put his case forward, but they didn't, for some reason, put quite such a persuasive case on behalf of Vissing?

And maybe Eastbourne/Ipswich have already made satisfactory alternative arrangements for Kennett?
