Think he may also be a rising star as on the list I have seen he is classed as a 4*

Can only be 1 rising star per team so presumably Anders will be at 6 and Drew at 7, therefore making Anders NOT the rising star, even though he is on the rising star list :blink:

One rising star slot in the team doesn't mean only one rising star in the team

For Ipswich it's not unusual to give a couple of young Brits ago - whilst for some others they have always seemed to see it as an inconvenience.....

How come Jason Crump's average has gone from 8.21 last week to 8.00 this week? Conveniently to drop Ipswich JUST under the average limit?

1. Jason Crump 8.00

2. Jordan Stewart 4.00

3. Danny King 6.66

4. Cameron Heeps 6.30

5. Nicolai Klindt 7.43

6. Anders Rowe 3.00

7. Drew Kemp (3*)

Total: 35.39

Another year away from riding in league? 

Then everyone should get a decrease as everyone has had a year away?

He could be a rising star in Championship

You can theoretically have 7 riders on the Rising Star List. Some CL teams have 2 or 3.

The crucial bit is that you have to have one at No 7 in 2021 and two at 6 and 7 in 2022.

They have to start at 7 but if their actual average increases they move up and down the team

You have to signify one as your Rising Star at start of season that's all.

Ipswich have no doubt decided that tactically Kemp is at this stage a better rider to have at No 7 than Rowe.

So do all teams get to choose a rider to reduce average 'for the good of speedway'? Seems a bit unfair

Yes he could, but won't be at Redcar, although I'm lead to believe that Anders is a 4* so maybe he couldn't?

But he was 8.21 for 2020 and now 8.00 for 2021, everyone should therefore get a decrease for the extra year away?

Yes, I am aware, I was trying to point out to other people that a team can have as many rising stars as they like, the more the better tbh, but one of them has to be at 7 and the other can fit wherever their average dictates

A rider that hasn't ridden for a period of time (not just 1 year away) gets their average reassessed. So in Crump's case he was reassessed at 8.21 for having many years away for the 2020 season. As its been an extra year away his average now gets another reduction.  

Paul Hurrys average for the 2020 season would have been more than for 2021, Bjarne Pedersen the same.

I think you are missing the point, how can riders travel from Poland to the UK then back to Poland with the current restrictions in place ??

Travel to Europe is allowed and sports professionals are allowed and they will have been tested in Poland beforehand

You are conflating two separate rules. BP and Crump have both been away long enough to get reassessed, but don't qualify for an additional reduction for missing a year. Most obviously Crump rode in the British Final last year and Bjarne has ridden every season since he left Poole.
