Is Chris Holder available to clubs in this country? Maybe we’ll revert to last years plan A? Think he’s on an average just over 6, over two  points lower than Crump. 

No- he rides Extraleague with Torun now and is riding in Sweden for Indianerna.

Be interesting to see who our other reserve will be,,,anyone got any ideas? Not many riders around on a 3 to 4 that isn't a rising star, and that might be half decent. 

Tom Brennan would make a good reserve pair with Kemp.

Is he not a rising star? Or can you have more than one,,, if there is enough to go round.

And the riders that have beaten him are way lower on the pecking order, supposedly. I don't have a problem with him being in the Ipswich line up,,, but on a more realistic average of 6. I don't see the point of having a rider that will clearly drop his average by possibly a quarter.  As already said though,,, it may all be about bums on seats.  Or maybe he will be somewhere else.

Bums on seats comes with winning, will struggle to get off to good start  in heat 1 races for first six months,I would rather see a showman / future up comming young guns like Allen and break in Kemp than wasting money on crumps maybee’s ,a big risk  on 2020 teams picked number1’s

Can you give us a clue on what average roughly? Then we can start guessing.

It’s an interesting one as you’d assume whoever it is is on a hefty average? If he’s the best number 6 in the league. Not doable if Crump is retained on his inflated average at 1. Throws up all sorts of questions! Newcomer on an assessed average perhaps?

That's maybe what I'm thinking,, a new rider to these shores on  a 4. Or is it Johno making his comeback, :rofl:

Or maybe Chris has been inspired by Crumpy and decided to give it another bash :D

To be fair I expect Chris could still do the business at foxhall.  I remember at mildenhall when he promoted there the riders said the track was unfit.  Chris jumped on a bike and went round absolutely fine and declared the meeting would go ahead !!!

I wonder what average Gino would be on might be worth a go in a watered down league, depending on covid issues.
