Dream Team : Chrissy Wilson

I'm an Edinburgh Monarchs fan, and have been since I was just 6, making me a fan for 10 years now! But having been young when I first went, my team will consist of recent riders. I go to Armadale every week, and I'd say it's one of the best racing tracks in the country.

Peter Carr
I've heard many people saying it, and his four victories in the Scottish Open prove it, quite simply the greatest Monarch of the modern era, if not ever! His races at Armadale will never be forgotten, for sheer entertainment value alone. His legendary inside charge was great to watch, and his Scottish Open victory when he came from the back to beat Stoney and David Walsh was amazing. His victory in Heat 15 against Workington when he passed Stead and Stoney in the same corner was the best Carr memory for me.

Carl Stonehewer
Another rider who has never been a Monarch, but I wish he had been. A wonderful rider who produces great races, and seems like a great guy to go with it. Such a shame he won't be a part of the 2006 season. A real speedway great!

Shane Parker
Now I know he is not a Monarch, but he is a fantastic speedway rider. He does annoy me sometimes with his heat wins at Armadale, but you have to respect him. Great to watch, and always puts on a good show when he visits Edinburgh.

Rory Schlein
This is a rider who has the potential to go straight to the top. In that memorable Title winning season, Rory was magnificent and produced fantastic racing. Was a joy to watch as a Monarch and has the ability to be a future World Champion.

Frede Schott
Another of that famous 2003 Premier League title winning side. His form was breathtaking that year, and he turned Armadale into a fortress. A great rider who captained the side brilliantly in 2003. Would love to see him back in the Blue and Gold!

Sam Ermolenko
Although I've only seen 'Sudden' Sam live twice, he was a great showman and awesome to watch. A real talent on a Motorcycle and was a credit to our sport. Still a fantastic rider and it would be great to see him turn out in the Premier League one day, just for his entertainment value if nothing else!

Theo Pijper
As I got older I started taking a really keen interest in speedway, and that conincided with Theo's introduction to British Speedway as a Monarch. He has been a great servant to Edinburgh Speedway. He has great ability and has improved every year. He always gives his absolute best and has produced some great races at Armadale. Could 2006 be the season he breaks the 9 point average barrier?
