No and then yes. 

I see my answer confused Diamonds85 so I'll make it even simpler No it doesn't round up to 4.89 and yes you are way off.

Poole over the years have offered riders way more than anyone else to get them so its a bit of karma seeing one of their riders head elsewhere for more money!

Reading some of their fans meltdowns on here has been quality.

Does that not round up to 4.89 though? 7 Rounds the 4 to 5 and the 5 rounds up to 4.89. Just how I worked it out myself. Could be way off?

That’s not very good maths

I assume you mean he left so that he would have more meetings and therefore the potential to earn more money. I would have thought that a smooth wide track where you can race hard for 4 laps would have also been part of his thinking. But yes totally agree with your sentiments re-some Poole fans.

Poole is a smooth track these days that you can race hard for four laps. I am not one of the fans who is annoyed or upset by Basso going, can't say I am not disappointed because he is a never give up entertainer who Glasgow fans will love. Good luck to him and Glasgow, it should be a great season for you.

I think Diamonds85 is really confusing the issue a 4 is after the 8 and anything lower than a 5 is rounded down...? And even if you do the two digits after, it is 47 and anything under 50 is rounded down.

Not always, when Poole signed Leigh Adams, BV offered him more money but he didn't choose them. But that may have been more of a geographical issue. 

Not all riders just go for the money, I would have thought the full package a club can offer is better for them.

I like it when Jaizer bites to SS as I learn more about Glasgow as I don't know much about the club owners and everything they put into the club.

They don't sign for Poole just for the money, the club has that winning mentality, hence the bolging trophy cabinet, that's why they choose Poole, plus guaranteed of being paid on time :t:

Leigh Adams would have signed for Poole over Belle Vue because at the time Neil Street was the Poole team manager.
