With the way the Poles are expanding their Leagues and opening it up its equally likely that the forward thinking Facennas could be in top Polish League in same timescale and entertaining the best riders in the world every 2 weeks

See what response that idea gets in Daugavpils?

Woah Glasgow isn't England.

Just noticed edit. D'oh

Yeah, I'm too used to saying England from when Poole were in the Prem, but at least I am noticing before it's pointed out now! ;):t:

You know, it's something crossed my mind, with Russia, Germany, Latvia having teams in the polish lower leagues why don't Britain look into it? Get British riders started in Poland and continental experience

I hope I'm wrong, but don't think Basso will be on these Shores for long ,  specially when Poland start waving the big bucks 

Well when he's 25 and maybe not extraliga level he'll be needing a place back in Britain won't he? Otherwise I'm sure a prem club will be looking to buy him in 2/3 years time at a nice profit

Exactly. 2 years max imo. Good of him to want to ride England first before Poland though, some young riders are starting to go to Poland first. 

Edit - aaah when I say England I obv mean Scotland too! Sorry, habit ;)

That's no apology - just ignorance.  If you mean Britain or UK say Britain or UK.

You build it into contracts they need to ride in Britain obviously as well. We're so far behind other nations, Danes have about 5/6 off top of my head that are next in line as potential top riders. Our current crop probably best been around for a long time but we won't do jack if they can't get experience riding on the continent. End of the day look at Lambert and Dan, they leave anyway!!

With the money on offer in Poland any rider with ambition will be off like a shot if they get an offer,including Young Brits.Even the Young Aussies see Poland as their first port of call these days.

At least Aussies such as Darcy and JC are telling them to do UK first, whether they take it on board is anyone's guess!

It's not always possible for them.

Most, if not all, of the young Aussies that have gone to Poland first have done it because they couldn't get a work visa for the UK but could get one for Poland.
