Klindt will be staying at Ipswich imo. Nicolai has made it public that he wants to honour his contract at Ipswich.

Crumpy will surely get the chop on a 8.00 average.

That makes sense to me,, but I've seen many a strange team choice at Ipswich.  Crump to Peterborough

Is he staying in Ipswich?  He may have made it public saying he wants to honour his contract but does the club, or does Nicolai know he won't honour it and was trying to gloss over to look good to fans etc.

Crump does look likely however on average but commercially perhaps sponsors have put more money into the club based on Crump riding, and does CL believe Crump will put more bums on seats at Foxhall, I am sure non Witches fans would travel at least once if they live local-ish just to watch Crump ride if their own side isn't running in the Premier League.

It's going to be very interesting

I don't think Jason will get a team place to be honest. I think clubs are going to remain loyal to most riders they signed for 2020.

I've started a topic on Troy Batchelor too as I don't see how Troy or Crumpy are going to fixed up with such a low points limit being set with clubs also being loyal to most riders signed for the cancelled 2020 season.

Klindt hasn't signed a contract in Sweden so I think he's being sincere about honouring the contract.

Nicolai is mustard around Ipswich too so I cant imagine Chris Louis picking Crump over Klindt.

Unless sponsorship dictates Crump in the side of course

So, I'm sure I read it was 6 man teams next year, but re-reading the BSPA site, it says Premiership clubs will build their teams up to a combined average of 35.5 for six riders plus a British youngster graded four and below. So that means 7 man sides.

Making an assumption that Crump will unfortunately not ride here this season and Kemp will be the British youngster:

  1. King: 6.66
  2. Klindt: 7.43
  3. Heeps: 6.30
  4. Allen: 5.56
  5. TBC
  6. TBC
  7. Kemp: 3.00

That's a total of 25.95, leaving 9.55 for the final 2 places. Plenty of food for thought there.

Scott Nicholls is a good shout.

Peterborough will probably re-sign track specialist BWD now which could free up Nicholls who doesn't ride the EOES well.

BWD will replace either Tungate or Niels. Scott will be at showground.

How about Adam Ellis and Tom Brennan presuming it will be Jason Crump left out.

Crump will be @ Ipswich 100% as stated he will put bums on seats & has joint sponsors with the team in addition his return is such a boost to British speedway the BSP will help make it happen.
