Soundbites: 3rd May 2005


"We're so pleased to see Lubos' efforts finally rewarded with a big score and his performance made all the hard work during the rain delay worthwhile."
George English on Lubos Tomicek's 10 point haul yesterday

"It was a bit of a gamble to sign him, but it looks as though it is a gamble that will pay off. I thought he was excellent tonight. We could not have asked for more from him."
Reading promoter Pat Bliss on Zdenek Simota's paid 13 on his home debut

"There's always been a point missing here and there for me in the past, but it was brilliant to get it all right and for us to get the bonus point as well. Not a lot has changed from recent weeks, but maybe the track suited me better, my preparation was excellent and everything was on-song."
Lee Smethills on his first ever Premier League maximum

"I didn't mind the old system, but at least now you are rewarded with winning rides by having choice of gates in the semis and final. I am so pleased to have got through the meeting. I was very worried before the start. It is tough having seven rides and I would not have wanted an eighth!"
Tony Rickardsson on his triumph at Wroclaw

"Kenneth is getting his act together again. He has been hit by three engine failures and all of them were on TV. He was getting a bit embarrassed about it. He says he'll make sure he's set up right for the next time we appear but we aren't on the list for May so he'll have to wait for his chance to show the viewers what he really can do."
Ian Thomas on Kenneth Bjerre

"It was the engine I used in the European Grand Prix in Wroclaw on Saturday. I used it again in the Polish League on Sunday when I got 14 points, so I flew it over to England to try here. I didn't think that it would work well here, I thought that it would be too strong for the Poole track. But nothing was working for me here, so I had nothing to lose and just tried something out of the blue and it worked. I am absolutely over the moon with the result and that we are level on points with Belle Vue at the top of the table."
Antonio Lindback divulges the secret behind his improved form

"The mood in the camp is happy, it was a good effort. I would say Rye House are the best side we've faced this season, they're running away with their Southern Premier Trophy section. They've been hammering other teams at home, but we kept them to six points for the home leg return. I think we've got plenty to build on."
Hull boss David Peet - Optimistic after an away defeat in their first Premier League match

"This is a very important meeting to us as we need to win this and the away leg at theirs on Sunday, May 15 to give ourselves a good chance of finishing second in the Southern Trophy table and qualifying for the semi-finals. They have a very solid line up with Mads Korneliussen, Kristian Lund and Michael Coles all being really good back up for Watson."
Rob Lyon welcomes Newport to King's Lynn tomorrow night

"Edward (Kennett) looked across at me and saw me going by. The next thing I knew he had moved his bike over and I was in the fence. I could not believe that and I could not believe the referee's decision to exclude me. I am absolutely gutted as I had the championship won. The referee would not talk to me, which made it worse."
Daniel King on his exclusion from the Under 21 final on Saturday

"I'm not making excuses but nothing went our way tonight. Lee and Sebastian have big engine problems and lost points in scoring positions while Mads is not feeling very well but still gave it his best shot for us. Leigh never made a gate at all tonight and is very angry with himself. We were certainly in with a shout at one stage so I am very disappointed with the way it ended."
Alun Rossiter on last night's defeat at Poole

"It was a fantastic result. I always treat away draws as victories and I'm absolutely delighted for Lukas (Dryml) to return with a good score."
Mick Horton on Peterborough's bank holiday trip to Ipswich

"It's been a good day for both me and the team. Riding in the Under-21 final did wonders for my confidence and it was a real learning experience."
Tom Brown of Weymouth - Pleased the Wildcats defeated Wimbledon yesterday

"The fall I suffered at Newcastle was a simple one and not a serious crash. I'm thinking it could have actually happened on the Friday at Armadale. It was still sore when I rode at Berwick on the Saturday. I hope to be racing again by the end of June or the first week in July."
Edinburgh's Robert Ksiezak on his broken leg

"I was disappointed that we lost on Saturday because I honestly felt we had a very good chance of going there and winning. Unfortunately it didn't work out like that and a few of the lads had long faces afterwards because they knew they hadn't done very well. In a way I was pleased by that because it showed they are professional and care about their performances."
Workington boss Graham Drury on the Comets defeat at Stoke

"It might sound like sour grapes, but strange decisions at crucial stages went against us. What's done is done though and I'm just glad that all our riders ended the meeting safe because conditions were appalling."
Glasgow manager Stewart Dickson on the Tigers defeat at Newcastle yesterday
