Does Britain go for broke and use Brennan against Latvia/France hoping he scores points or do they use him as Sacrificial lamb against the Poles?

That`s near enough what i posted on Tuesday- quoted below

Over a cup of tea this morning i have been thinking (difficult at my time of life :)) about tactics on using the U 21 ride. Steven Goret is in my opinion the worst of the 7 U 21 riders on show, so ideally on Saturday heat 11 would be the ideal race for Brennan. France however are hardly likely to definitely use Goret  in that race. It will be intesting how it pans out over the 2 days. I can foresee some blagging  from teams similar to the F1 pit crews :D

More likely France will throw Goret vs Poland. Actually most teams will do it IMO. :D

P.S. Well, maybe Lemon will use Etheridge off gate 1 early on. :icon_smile_clown:

I agree, Poland will cruise into the final, Britain, Australia and Denmark will scrap for the run off places.

I thought both days were the final. Is saturday only a semi final? I'm confused but that's not hard :D

Posted by me on Monday

Might be a good time to clarify the format and some of the rules.

Day 1 21 heats scoring 4, 3, 2, 0  under U 21 rider must ride in 1 heat

Day 2 1st day scores are added to day 2 another 21 heats and the U 21 rider must take 1 ride. At the end of the 42nd heat the leading team go to the final(race 44). next best 2 teams go in race 43 to decide who gets to the final. The team who win the final win the title.(2nd and 3rd beat 1 and 4)

Any starting offence warnings are not carried over from day 1 to day 2. U 21 riders are not allowed to replace riders excluded for a starting offence.

BBC weather forecast is similar to what R&R has posted.               
From early hours of Sunday morning until noon on Sunday there is a high chance of LIGHT rain, and light winds. For the rest of the afternoon, dark clouds (not rain). BV will be able to take light rain, no problem. Too many doomsayers on here.
