Soundbites: 30th April 2005


"I feel I can go to Poland fully focused. I can't be more ready for it than now. I'll just go there and try to have fun and have a good time. I rode at Wroclaw in the World Under-21 Final last year. It is a nice track, shaped like Swindon's, and I hope it will be good for me. If there is a bit of dirt on it I hope I can do well. I'll just try and relax and do a few good laps. I get five rides, so I hope I can get one or two good ones."
Antonio Lindback on tonight's GP

"I was in something of a rut at Workington last season, but things are on the up now. Joining Monarchs has been the best move of my career and has helped me ride my bikes round smaller circuits, something I used to struggle with."
A happy Rusty Harrison

"What I don't appreciate is people not returning my phone calls or messages and to be honest I am not going to keep on chasing Steve."
Mildenhall manager Wayne Swales on Steve Braidford who seems to have gone AWOL

"I still have the hunger and desire to be world champion. I had it within my grasp to win it last year and definitely to come third. I screwed up the last few and was pretty disappointed to see it all blow away and come fourth again. I don't want that to happen again, I want to be in the hunt and top three - that is what we are after."
Leigh Adams on his Grand Prix prospects

"I didn't know that Antonio was at the back. All I knew was that we needed a 3-3 to win the meeting. Middlo said 'don't let me down' in the pits and I knew what that meant. I had had a bad race in my first one when I had to pull out with a fuel problem, so I wanted to bounce back and score some points."
Bjarne Pedersen - Last heat hero for Poole on Wednesday

"It was a superb result, everybody did what they're supposed to do. It was a very, very good win, no two ways about it. You don't come to this place and turn Edinburgh over like we've done."
Hull boss David Peet on their win at Armadale last night

"Last year I came 11th and the aim this year is top eight and automatic qualification for the following year. The first priority in all the 2005 GPs is to make the semi-finals and then take it from there."
Lee Richardson plots out his GP campaign

"It was always going to be tough to get the bonus point as well after the disappointing result at their place, but we have kept ourselves in with a chance of making the semi-finals."
King's Lynn manager Rob Lyon on their win over Rye House

"Workington are always attractive, and sometimes controversial visitors to Loomer Road, and we are expecting another hard meeting. We have yet to lose at home in the Premier Trophy and we are keen to keep that run going. However, Workington are topping the section for good reason and we will have to hit them hard to get anything out of it."
Dave Tattum on tonight's match at Stoke

"We've been big mates in speedway for a long time, so I couldn't imagine having a special meeting without him being there. Mind you, I was getting a bit worried because every time I rang his phone there was no answer. I thought he was avoiding me because he knew what I was going to ask him."
Carl Stonehewer confirming that Sean Wilson will ride in his testimonial meeting
