Hasn’t Riss said he doesn’t want championship racing cause of other commitments that’s why he turned Redcar 28 day down 

He said on the podcast it depends who is asking. Redcar would be harder to fit in than Oxford (unless he is doing Denmark) I would imagine.

Earlier in the year he indicated he wanted to ride Champ. But I got the impression he wasn't desperate, so would only pick a team that fits in his schedule. The fact he couldn't agree to 28 days makes it less likely he'd sign, but maybe a midweek club, like Oxford, is a possibility?

If Riss has too much in his schedule, could easily drop his Spires places as they have virtually 5 points to play with for a replacement and link up with the Cheetahs instead.

Yeah, he's not exactly set the world alight at Sandy Lane before.

His visits for Poole last year were...

League: 1pt (beat Ryan Kinsley)
Cup: 1pt (beat Ryan Kinsley)
BSN Series: 1pt (only scored because Killeen retired)

Hopefully it may keep him off BSN for a while

That's the only positive thing about it.

So a fair replacement for Atkins then (based on his 2024 scores).

But will Roynon score more than the guests have done?

Back in April Oxford would've had over 6 points to replace Atkins, but either weren't ruthless enough / or very loyal & kept Atkins. 

You can be sure a team like Poole would've made a change, probably one of the reasons they always finish near the top.

Not exactly. Atkins scored 9+2 from his three home meetings so far this season.

Agreed. Points to spare with the Spires team as well and no change was made. Both teams might make the playoffs, but neither are serious contenders for the title with their current line-ups.

Looking at the stats on the Speedway GB website, Atkins has a 1.14 home average & 0.00 away average. 

Roynon can hardly do any worse.

Agreed. Play-off chasing teams, but not play-off challenging teams.
