It's an embarrassment to be honest, the sports crying out for a Barry Hearn type individual to come in and overhaul the whole set up. How can you have a British world champion who doesn't want to ride in the British league?And people wonder why there's less and less interest for Speedway in this country. Piss up and brewery spring to mind here...
Doyle, Holder and Zagar are all riding here but there's a seemingly endless list of world class riders who choose to avoid the British elite league in favour of Poland and Sweden(and you can't blame them, their leagues are so much more professional).
The Leszno team team this year includes Pedersen, Sayfutdinov, Zengota, Kildemand and Pawlicki. The British teams will include a number of riders who should really be racing in the premier league.
I think they have squads of riders as well, so if one gets injured they don't have to borrow from another team. It's laughable that a team already in the grand final can lend riders to a team competing in the other semi.
Whilst I'm on a bit of a rant, is it that hard to have all the races on the same night? Surely that would make it more appealing for the Grand Prix racers?
If these issues are obvious to the members of 1FF, why aren't they to the BSPA?
