Dream Team: Jim
|Jan O. Pedersen
I was born on the 15/03/80 on a Saturday. My Dad worked at Dudley Wood and put me in the supporters club at a few hours old, so I've been a Cradley fan all my life. There will be no W****s riders but I have respect for Sudden Sam. I think we gave him stick because we knew what a bloody good rider he was.
What can you say about Erik? He was there for everyone, he even came to my primary school (Hawbush Primary) summer fairs & because my Dad worked on the track at Cradley, I saw him all time. A gentleman and a good rider.
Okay not my popular pick and Im reasdy for the stick of my fellow Cradley fans but on his day he was brilliant, especially off gate 3 at Dudley Wood.
My favourite non Cradley rider and always did well round Dudley Wood, plus he turned down W****s in the 1989 KO cup final because he wanted to do it for Erik. Much respect Kelvin.

Mr entertainment. 9/10 if he was last in the 1st bend by the end of lap 1 he would be 1st. Also a great team rider.
A very underestimated rider on his day, the best in the world, probably the best (in my time along with Kelvin Tatum) not to be world champion.
Again very underestimated & a world beater on his day, plus his pink leathers.

What can you say about Herbie? I saw his 1st meeting as a 9 year old at Dudley Wood & his first race win. Just like Erik he loved Cradley & Cradley loved him.
