Many People Criticize Marketa Racing. Track Has Been Improved. Racing is Top Draw. No Quarter Given. Cheering Czech, Vaclav Milik. Radmila Waves My Czech Flag. To Good Effect. Vaclav Rides His Bike to its Limits. Not as Quick As His Lucrative Opponents.

Riders Who Impress Me. Are Pole Zmarzlik, N K Iversen. And Back to Form Swede Lindgren. Most of the Crowd Boo Dane Niki Pedersen. I Really Like Niki. OK He His Controversial. But He His Entertaining. Plus a Character. Speedway Needs More Like Him !. Man in Front of Us. Stands, Swaggers & Boasts the Claims of Tai Woffinden. No Doubts He His Very Talented. Just Find Him Arrogant. Dislike Him Not Showing up for the British Final. Can Remember Standing Behind Him at Marketa. When He was Watching with His Father. Many Years Ago. How Time Flies. Tai is Thrown out of This Meeting. For Taking Zmarzlik Off. Fellow Brit.Chris Harris, Makes Final. A Welcome Change. Aussie Jason Doyle is A Worthy Winner.
