On Wednesday 11th September a SCB Court of Appeal was convened at the ACU Offices in Rugby.

This related to an appeal brought by Craig Cook against a 12 day suspension imposed following events that took place at Eastbourne on the 3rd August 2019.

After considering all the information from all parties, the 12 day suspension was recinded and replaced with a financial penalty.

Think any of us who have seen a similar situation at work where someone is in trouble and gets away with it will know exactly what has happened.

A crazy decision, and it really is who you know and how much money you are prepared to spend.

It would be unbelievable and a disgrace, other than it's no surprise.

Stitch up and cover up.

Sports a joke.

Shameful decision by SCB.

No reason given for the decision.

No transparency from the SCB.

How do they justify the ban for Kennett and Vissing?

How much was the fine?

I would estimate Craig Cook faced a large fine. At least £5 in my estimation.

An explanation as to why might have been useful. Seems unfair on the riders that did receive a ban.

Agree that SCB should give reasons but the other riders involved had the same chance as Cook to appeal, and didn't, so no sympathy from me.

And was the cheque signed by the facennas? 

We need to know how they reached this conclusion and the reasons. 

I can see kennett and Vissing taking legal action for loss of earnings.  It was Cook’s reaction which started the melee which prompted their actions.

Perhaps both accepted they acted wrongly and accepted their punishment

i think i saw that Vissing had appealed but was told he had no grounds to and his appeal was rejected
