Dream Team: Frank Crook

I am now 66 years old and started watching Belle Vue when I was 16 years old.

Torbjorn Harrysson

Soren Sjosten
If you ever saw Soren at his best he needed some beating. I always remember when Newport came to Hyde Road, they were magic and the fought wheel to wheel for four laps, the other rider was Torbjorn Harrysson.

Torbjorn Harrysson
Brilliant rider. I loved his style or riding. His battles with Soren Sjosten at Hyde Road were brilliant.

Dick Fisher
Dick was a good team rider and captain of the Aces in his last years at Hyde Road. He was one rider that I never saw fall off his bike, such a safe rider and a true gentleman. He always turned up at Hyde Road in his Jaguar and always wore a suit, collar and tie.

Kenny Carter
I made quite a few trips to The Shay at Halifax. The racing there was fast and Kenny took some beating. Just a shame that his life ended when he was at the top of his game, he could have been a World Champ.

Eric Boocock
Another Halifax Duke. A true Brit. A very stylish rider who was never say die - that was Booey.

Bob Paulsen
Paulsen of the Sheffield Tigers was a good second string who had many bad crashes in his career. I feel these stopped him from making it to the top.

Sandor Levai
Sandor was a good rider for Belle Vue. He used to partner Dick Fisher and was always on top of his game.
