    Belle Vue Colts 2024

    Makes sense for Cairns, best track in the country, guaranteed spot for next season so no need to worry about averages AND not signing for Leicester means his Dad can be in the pits at his meetings and focus on being promotor when Leicester are running. William looks as promising as Luke Harrison did during his 'breakthrough' period and if he follows on he will be doing alright. Probably the most positive footnote is Belle Vues intention to run in the NDL next season, i just hope there is enough quality in the league to challenge Cairns. and other emerging riders.

    I reckon even i could make my way out of a maze within a month, although David Bowie doesn't make it easy.....

    Nora Speedway

    i 1000% agree with you. League Speedway offers very little in terms of credibility and in fact often only serves to generate animosity between fan groups who both adore the same sport. IOW are pushing boundaries and building something that actually looks to be a sustainable product (something few others could argue about league speedway) and the US style handicap meeting taking place this week is at the top end of Warriors entertainment.

    Nora Speedway

    A few clubs over the past couple of seasons have asked riders not to compete in Nora and a few riders have told the clubs to poke it (not saying any of the competitors that took place in the latest meeting were in that situation), there have also been clubs who were fully behind their riders getting extra laps in and keeping sharp. I think the backlash against the BSPL/SCB would be far too large if they were to try and impose sanctions on any rider competing under another banner. IOW in association with NORA are trying something innovative and different which is scary to the established order, it is also very much a work in progress and often a product that works better on the big open spaces of the smallbrook circuit than may suit other mainland venues.

    I like Tom but he does tend to rapidly raise his average in the first half of the season then trim it back down to a more signable 5ish in the latter stages. He's a smart enough rider but im yet to be convinced that he would mix it in a more physical league and his bikes could do with a decent cash injection bu at only 24 there are certainly worse options out there / already riding in the CL.

    Oxford Vs Workington June 26 2024

    Bit of a blooper.....sadly exposes my lack of interest in the NDL this year

    Oxford Vs Workington June 26 2024

    Catch 22 really. A 10 point rider and a 2 point rider in the same races are never likely to create great entertainment. That said there are also a decent amount of new riders who aren't struggling with the step up Killeen, Boughen, Harrison, Hagon etc. The sport has always succeeded when those who were good enough got and held places and always stumbled when those places were filled by riders whos average fitted. Some of the riders struggling would possibly fare better at another track? The bigger concern is the very short list of riders ready to take 2.00 positions next season if the system persists.

    Edinburgh did it in the NDL last season, although Edinburgh have been making up the rules in the NL since they rejoined.

    Oxford Cheetahs 2024

    Not shocked sadly. Nice lad is 'enry but never really delivered to his capabilities as he is a very talented motorcyclist. Few injuries over the years have hampered progress along with often experimenting too much with kit and a reluctance to move away from Plymouth teams and better himself on bigger tracks. That said he had a good few years at it and experienced more success than many will ever get near.....all the best for the future.

    Oxford Vs Workington June 26 2024

    Current form Matt Marson would be worth a look. Nearly 2 points higher average than McGurk at the same NDL track and far more technically gifted.
  12. The fact that Oxford have been continuing with Spooner in their named 1-7 is fairly laughable however i confess it had escaped me that they didn't have the option to simply run RR and were choosing 3.00 riders to fill gaps. Sadly the fact that Woods was potentially the best available option then says a whole lot about the state the sport is in.......oh and Happy Birthday Sam 31 today.
  13. Just going off the regulations. Not saying its a good ruling but theres no requirement to use an unattached 3 pointer this season C Absent 6 and/or 7 by MA - G who must be in an NDL 1-7 or an unattached rider eligible to participate in the NDL 013.1.6 Guest Rider (G) Replaces an absent regular team member subject to the following: - a) assumes the position and MA of the missing rider b) must be in a current NDL team declaration or any unattached rider eligible to race in the NDL c) a rider may ride as a guest (in an official meeting) at a track only once in an 8-day (within that league) period, unless he is replacing the home teams #1 d) a guest rider in a double header shall count as one meeting only e) the guests own MA must be the same or lower than that of the missing rider A rider can Guest twice at the same track and only once for the same team, in a season. This does not include unattached 3.00 point riders eligible for the NDL

    Hodder is almost 20 years younger. Yes Garrad has a better current NDL average but Oxford have raced most of the poor teams thus far and had more home fixtures etc. Garrad is willing to put it about but thats mostly desperation rather than ability.
  15. 6 or 7 can be replaced with a guest from another NDL side and with 5.07 for Spooner and 5.68 for Butcher either side could have looked for a stronger option. Both Ward and Simpson are both ex Leicester riders and Dayle Wood turns up to the opening of a crisp packet, any of those would have been an improvement on Woods and Fellows certainly strengthened either sides chances. Sadly the lack of will to win in the strongest fixture of the season thus far sums up how far the league has fallen.
