Dream Team : Alan Thompsett
My twin sons Lee and Michael (just about to turn 8 years old) have been collecting autographs at the Isle of Wight for the last 3 years - in all that time there have only been 2 riders who have refused to sign their programmes - the following riders have become heroes for my lads because they never refused an autograph and always took time out for the kids - they show the good side of our sport.
Krister Marsh, Krystof Stojanowski, Danny Bird, Neil Collins, Steen Jensen, Tom Brown, Henning Bager, Matt Read and Chris Mills also deserve a mention for the time they spent chatting and signing autographs for the lads.
"I always take an interest in dream teams and this weeks by Alan Thompsett is no exception. I find his team especially refreshing as the make up of the side are those riders who take time out for the supporters. From the distant terraces it always interests me when riders are seen to interact with the fans. Those riders who can't be bothered could learn a lot from the likes of Craig Boyce, Craig Watson etc. As a member of the paying public I expect and usually get entertainment but those riders who go the extra mile for the fans are worth their weight in gold. Brighton has become so special because of the relationship with such entertainers like Shawn McConnell and Bobby Schwartz. Long may it continue."
