Will Doyle himself want to ride in the UK?

He has had a poor GP series by his standards.

By June I can see a couple of riders being ‘under threat’ !

Seems like a few riders are quitting Sweden as Woffinden says the same in his book.

rumour is Tai (already stated), Fast Freddie (said he won't ride for Smerdena again at minimum but sounds like full quit), Doyle. 

Nikki P just got released by Vasterik today. So see what happens. 

BZ staying with Vetlanda, but i  wonder what riders like Magic, Dudek, NKI do. Especially the polish boys who are making a fortune through sponsors etc.

Maybe Doyle looking for a less hectic and more settled lifestyle which POL/UK and the GP's would give him if you also factor in various Individual meetings. I can imagine its a hell of a lot of tiring commuting doing POl FRI or SUN/Swe Tue or the odd Thur plus UK mainly Thur & Mon. We know he lives in UK with his wife so chances are he is in like a revolving door with whistle stop visits home before he is off again. 

Is his schedule something like POL SUN or FRI - back to UK to maybe ride is some UK meetings or be at home - SWE Tue (odd Thur) back home for UK Thur and then back out again on Thur/Fri for GP warm ups and Sat GP's and then on to POL again for league meetings Sundays.

Amazes me how the likes of NKI and Hans And did POL/UK/DK and SWE for so many years. Even NKI dropped one this season (UK) and only came back when he knew his GP place is secured for 2020 and Torun were not in play offs having been relegated,

I know they are supposed to be professional sportsmen but these guys are normally flying on budget airlines getting little sleep and we all take for granted they will always be on top form to race and score big points.

I think a lot of them who are only going to do Poland and GPs may start looking for another gig when they find their race sharpness isn't quite upto scratch. You can do lap after lap in practice and be fitter than a butcher's dog, but it's not racing and racing is what keeps you switched on. As for TW it's a bit presumptuous to drop Sweden when he's not even guaranteed a GP spot next year. I know it's a high probability and there would probably be uproar, but what would he do if he didn't get one ?

There is no way they will make the mistake of not having him back again after 2018. And with the new TV deal in place with Eurosport surely they won't do anything stupid at the AGM which would stop riders like Doyley riding here.

Please not Eurosport. Pleaaaaaaase.

Not sure I'd have Kurtz after the way he went missing in the play offs. I'd prefer Jensen.
