Soundbites: 28th August 2006


"After losing the World Championship to Tony Rickardsson last year, I knew I had to make some tough decisions if I was to progress. And those decisions have paid off. I changed my machinery, restructured the whole operation of the team and set some goals and we have achieved the desired results. And to achieve the goals with two Grand Prix rounds remaining makes it all that more satisfying."
Jason Crump - 2006 World Champion

"It was obviously disappointing to lose at home again and two weeks in a row now. It was an outstanding meeting, the track again producing some very good racing, the conditions probably caught out our riders a bit and wasn't what they were expecting. Sheffield are a very good team, nicely balanced, that's why they are sitting second in the league."
Blayne Scroggins on Mildenhall's defeat yesterday

"We thoroughly deserved that win as the boys rode extremely well. Losing Mikael (Max) so early on we were up against it but the boys battled hard and got the win. Everyone did what was asked of them and I am just so pleased we have given the supporters something to cheer about at last. I think as a team we can now push on and move off the bottom of the table."
Steve Johnson of Arena Essex. The Hammers defeated Belle Vue on Friday.

"The scoreline just doesn't reflect how close a lot of the races were. Even the King's Lynn management and their supporters said it was one of the best meetings they had seen in a while."
Edinburgh promoter John Campbell on their 61-33 loss at King's Lynn on Saturday night.

"We put in a lot of effort and I can live with defeats when we go down fighting But it just didn't go our way out there and Rye House made it very hard for us to pin them back."
Stoke manager Nigel Crabtree on their home defeat from the Rockets

"I did say to the lads before the meeting that I was looking forward to a comfortable win and getting the bonus point, but that we should all be on the ball and not take anything for granted. What a good job we didn't, for with our skipper Krzysztof Stojanowski having a pretty mediocre meeting and reserve Nick Simmons only scoring one point from four rides, the rest of the boys had to pull out all the stops - and that they did."
Islanders boss David Croucher on their home win over Redcar Bears

"This year's Grand Prix Series is all over for me. I have had a terrible season, one I want to quickly forget."
Lee Richardson

"We've had about 2 weeks off, but some of our riders have had regular outings elsewhere with good success, yet tonight they couldn't raise their game to the level we need to win. I can't explain it. I have no answers. One thing I do know is I'm far from satisfied."
Peter Waite on another home defeat

"I hate the place and I hate seeing their team manager Alun Rossiter smile. I much prefer it when he storms around ranting and raving and that is what he was doing for most of the night. But it all changed in heat 14. If Swindon is our bogey track then that is our bogey race. We were on the wrong end of a 5-1 at Coventry on Monday which ruined our brilliant comeback and the same happened again."
