Glad to win as I knew we would,,, but come on,,, why gift them a point with no Doyle in 15,,,that just sucks,,,,, I'm guessing they are just happy to win,,, 

We thought it was strange to not put Doyle in but Nicola asked him after the meeting and he is feeling poorly so that’s why he didn’t go in 15

Fair enough,,, but a poorly Doyle would still stand more chance,, only needed a second place,,, plus if he was in,,, no one would have moaned even if he ran a last

Not only are Belle Vue breaking rule with team changes, they're now throwing their fookin averages

Quite enjoyable meeting I thought with some decent racing at times. 
 

Good job there’s a Mickey Mouse cup thingy to get warmed up before the proper stuff starts :D

Doyle rode tonight with a perforated eardrum according to the Ipswich website.

The Aces haven't broken any Regulations.

No idea why you think they're throwing averages? Fricke has a poor record at Foxhall.

If the Regs allowed some flexibility, team managers could actually set their teams up for the tracks they are visiting. Just because Fricke is #1 in the averages, doesn't mean he's the ideal #1 at every track.

Another cracking tackle move from Paul Hawkins! Yes his name is now, Paul after the other two tactical genius Lambert & Cook!

Maybe the reasons that Doyle was not in heat 15 should be known before slagging of the team manager hey?

You don’t mention that the switch made when Starke came in got us a 5-1. could easily have stuck with Rowe as he was doing OK.

It’s become popular to jump on the bandwagon and stick the boot in on Hawkins at every given opportunity these days unfortunately and it’s getting a bit tiresome. 
 

“It was an amazing effort by Doyley to do four rides given that he has a perforated eardrum and is really under the weather. To put four rides in and get three wins was an amazing effort, it was a leader’s performance”


 

There simply HAD to be an explanation and I’d have thought it was pretty obvious that it wasn’t because the manager tactically thought he had two better options. 

I certainly don’t agree with every decision he makes and I still don’t like the riding order seeing Riss at 2. But hearing him give his reasons for the riding order before the meeting it was hard to argue. King and Barker go back a long way and have ridden together many times in their Birmingham days and enjoy riding together, so after speaking to the riders he paired them up. Fair enough. Just then leaves one decision, Riss and Batch at 2 or 5.

And no one has mentioned the inspired decision to put Batchelor at 5 who did very well not to wipe out Doyle in heat 11 when on a max. Several riders were picking up extra unwanted drive on bend 2.

Let's see if he puts as much effort into racing for Leszno today.

Yes so correct. What this site does show is the amount of people in life who just want to moan.

It was obvious that Doyle must have had a problem but those keyboard warriors just wanted to jump on Richie Hawkins without knowing any facts.

I was very impressed with the team effort last night and shows we not a bad team when we have our full 1-7

Kin ell what is wrong with some of you people? So now your criticism has shifted from the manager to the rider? Firstly, I’d say his effort last night was very commendable no? Unless for some warped reason you’re saying he hasn’t got a perforated eardrum and someone is lying?

No doubt it was a much better team performance but we won't ride a team whose GP rider number 1 scores 3 points very often.

He's a tough nut and reliable team man.
