Happy New Year as Eastbourne’s Three Wise Eagles Predict
Wishing all of our fans, riders, sponsors, volunteers and all of those associated with our sport, a very Happy New Year and a safe and Prosperous New Year. We look forward to seeing you all Trackside at Arlington in 2020.
A message from Les Fineing:
As the festive season draws to a close, we ask the Three Wise Eagles – Ian Jordan, Trevor Geer and Will Pottinger – to gaze into their crystal balls and make some predictions for 2020.
New Year Predictions
Who will become World Speedway Champion?
Ian: Leon Madsen
Trevor: Would love to see Tai Woffinden win the World Championship again
Will: Tai Woffinden
Who will win the Premiership?
Trevor: Sheffield could be the team to beat in the Premiership, although I always have a soft spot for Wolverhampton. Chris Van Stratten and Peter Adams run a tight ship at Wolves and because of this they are there in the top flight year after year. They thoroughly deserve another win.
Who will win the Championship (after Play Offs)?
Ian: Eastbourne, of course
Trevor: I would have to say Eastbourne. The team is looking pretty solid for 2020
Which Eagle will finish with the highest average?
Ian: I dream they will all average 8.50 and we’ll worry about 2021 surrounded by silverware
Trevor: Any one of the top 5 could finish the season at No.1
Will: Richard Lawson
