Definitely seemed a bit lost being by himself tonight, at least with someone else you’ve got someone to bounce questions off etc. I know he gets grief for his commentary at times but fair play for doing it by himself I’d be bricking it if it was me haha.

Abi even praising him for his solo commentary as if last year never happened

One good race and the rest was follow my leader.

When quality racers struggle to pass then it just shows a track prepared for gating and entertainment goes out of the window.

Enjoyed the racing from Birmingham shown tonight in the track grade intervals.

When will promoters get in their heads that ENTERTAINMENT should be their priority

I know he used to, not sure if he still does? Looks similar to the protection Lee Complin used to use

That really depends on what entertains you, some are entertained by the racing some by winning. 

Eurosport showed races from Brum all night then neglect to show heat 15 and the super heat, you can always rely on Eurosport to let you down. They really should have been at Brum tonight. 

As for Leicester, as solid a display as it was, still only 1 rider returning double figures, when they come up against teams with 2 decent heat leaders they're going to continue to come unstuck in my opinion

Pretty dull watch with the odd decent heat but Leicester has never been a good race track.

Oxford were pretty awful tho. Nothing magic about Janowski neither.

For me the highlight was the cameraman concentrating on the serious gardening at the starts, whilst Chris just sits back and watches the nonsense, then he just nonchalantly tolls forward when the Marshall eventually calls them to the line, and off he goes and saved some wear and tear on his boots.  :)
