Soundbites: 24th April 2006

Pedersen
Stead

"We've kept it close enough to have a good crack at the bonus point when Newcastle visit us on Thursday week as we're getting more and more used to our home track."
Redcar boss Brian Havelock after they lost the Premier Trophy clash at Newcastle

"My aim was to get through and I managed that, so for six weeks or so I can forget all about the final while I concentrate on riding for Workington."
Garry Stead on qualifying for the British Final

"I was very, very pleased with both the attendance and the racing. Best of all, for both myself and Phil Bartlett, the team won against an American international team. The crowd were superb. They were very enthusiastic and I am quite sure we will get the same amount of people back next week."
Plymouth promoter Mike Bowden on the first meeting at the new track

"I knew I had the worst gate but just had to go for it, I have only been able to give 90 per cent because of my injury but as the track got slicker it became easier for me to ride. I am sure I will be able to compete in Poland but I want to be able to give 100 per cent in all the GPs, nothing less."
GP winner Nicki Pedersen

"Nicki doesn't give an inch and doesn't ask for anything in return. You know what you get with him and I am proud to have been part of such a great race. I am really pleased to have got second after only making the final because Leigh Adams stopped in his semi. But that has happened to me on this same track before."
Jason Crump on the GP final

"We were up against it without Alan Mogridge and other things also went against us at key times. I had to change to my second bike because I could hear something knocking in my first choice, and then the primary chain snapped in Heat 10. It just didn't happen for us, and Edinburgh got on a roll and kept going".
Mark Lemon on Stoke's home defeat on Saturday

"I have since been in contact with Tony and we are absolutely fine. Both of us have felt the pressure during matches recently for different reasons and we have said things to each other in the heat of the moment. We have always resolved matters immediately after meetings. I respect Tony totally and I think he has respect for me for what I am trying to do for Oxford."
Aaron Lanney makes peace with Tony Rickardsson

"After some good results for us, this was a complete disaster. It's fair to say that the aggregate bonus point may prove a problem when Newport come to Armadale later in the year."
John Campbell on Edinburgh's heavy defeat at Newport yesterday

"I don't make public predictions for obvious reasons, but I had a sneaky suspicion we could get the win. The boys made it happen by riding absolutely superbly. The Danish boys were tremendous and the team spirit was phenomenal. You'd have thought we'd won the World Cup judging by the way they were celebrating. In all seriousness it was important to go to Reading and get a result after what happened at the Showground - and to leave with the bonus point as well makes it a fantastic night."
Trevor Swales on Peterborough's win at Reading on Wednesday

"The speedway tracks in Britain are the world's best. Anybody who wants to be a good speedway rider knows he has to come to Britain. They're all thinking tracks. In Poland it goes to the boys who just pour it on. Here they're all thinking tracks. You've got to remember there's a hole on bend two, and there's a bump on four. You've got to think every lap."
Buck Blair of the American Dream Team
