Soundbites: 22nd May 2006


"The boos make me want to win that much more. It is sad to witness and I don't see the knockers coming up to tell me face-to-face what they think. However, they pay their money and are entitled to have their say. If it has any effect on me it is to score more points."
Scott Nicholls who was jeered at Foxhall Heath on Thursday

"It won't be long before someone gets turned over here. It's coming together and you can see there's potential for more. We've come up against the side who are top of the table and I didn't expect to beat them. Even when we were in front I knew it would be difficult to stay there."
Redcar manager Brian Havelock on the home defeat from Workington

"This year is my last opportunity to win the title and I'll be going flat out for a rostrum place at Leszno as well as qualifying for the final. It's a top class field but, if I ride as well as I know I can, then I can make the final."
Lubos Tomicek on the World Under 21 championship

"Recently I've had problems with my health, my condition. What's very important for me is to get good food - breakfast, lunch and evening meal. I didn't do this before - I had lots of junk food, fast food and didn't sleep very well. I've had headaches. It's really, really hard for me because of so many meetings and so much travelling. I had slept at the airport last Tuesday - it's not good."
Christian Hefenbrock on the life of the modern speedway rider

"I never believed Henrik would accomplish this (his assessed 9 point average) in his first season simply because it is such a change in conditions for him compared to what he is used to in Denmark where they ride on super slick tracks all the time. However, he will get better as the season goes on - that is still my belief - as he experiences different riding conditions at other tracks up and down the country."
John Campbell on Henrik Moller

"Racing over here in Britain for 10 years is cause for celebration and I want the whole evening to represent that. I've gone for riders who are entertainers on the track, but are up for a laugh with the supporters afterwards. It's important to me that people come and have a good time. I have no doubts the racing will be top notch because there is a lot to ride for."
Robbie Kessler on his testimonial - next Saturday at Stoke

"I've made a great start and I'm happy with my form but we've still got a long way to go."
Jason Crump plays down his GP success

"I am disappointed not to be in the Championship of Great Britain. It is all down to paperwork, the same as Mark (Loram). At least, in my case anyway, it gives the younger lads a chance to have a go."
Chris Louis on the British Final controversy

"The scoreline was no shock to me. For some reason Wolverhampton always get under your nails and this was no exception. They just chipped away and took it to a last-heat decider. We were always going to find it hard without Miedzinski at reserve and to be honest struggled in that position."
Alun Rossiter on Swindon's narrow home win over Wolves

"Jessica is a very good rider and was keen to prove what she could do in front of the home fans. But she is there on merit, there is no sentiment involved at Devils - we are a very competitive team. We want to win matches and win the league and with good young riders like Jamie Westacott and Matt Bates waiting in the wings, Jessica is under pressure to produce the goods."
Plymouth promoter Mike Bowden on Jessie Lamb

"I've still got an open mind on finding a reserve to take over from Lee Derbyshire, and as I've said before I'd sooner use someone who isn't committed to another Premier League track and then we have the opportunity to use him for the rest of the season. Lee has been told he's in for a long recovery with his broken legs and won't be looking at riding again this year."
Graham Drury the Workington promoter

"I was fighting for the lead and three of us were together as William Lawson came inside and I thought he was at fault. I don't think I was to blame and I don't believe it was any more than a couple of laps. It should have been rerun. But, having said that, I still think we have a fighting chance of getting through to the next round."
Newport's Tony Atkin on his exclusion at Edinburgh in the cup clash

"We have not have enough riders firing at the same time and unless that happens, you are not going to win away from home. We're disappointed with the away results but one of our biggest problems is our lop-sided fixture list. Home wins boost confidence, and that gives you the confidence to go and do well away as you go there on a high from winning the previous meeting."
Coventry manager Peter Oakes

"My target was to get into the semi-finals, so I'm not 100 per cent pleased. It was very close. But I should have been able to get one or two more points. I wanted to show what I can do."
Frederik Lindgren who scored 7 as the GP wildcard
