In spite of the various rumours casting some doubt on the club's future, Coventry Speedway have announced their final three signings for the 2017 season. Returning to Bees are Jason Garrity and James Sarjeant, who are joined by former King’s Lynn and Lakeside rider Lewis Kerr Let's hope that the rumours prove to be unfounded Oh my

Not good news coming out of Poland this evening: Polish great Tomasz Gollob is to undergo emergency surgery on serious spinal injuries following a motocross crash at Chelmno in northern Poland. The 2010 world champion has been airlifted to Bydgoszcz Military Hospital, where he is under the care of expert surgeon, Professor Marek Harat. According to updates from Gollob’s personal doctor Marek Rybacki, the SGP legend has sustained no head injuries. But there is reported to be damage to the spinal cord and the T7 vertebra, with the rider said to have no feeling in his legs. He is also believed to have suffered damage to both lungs. No doubt all Bees fans on the forum will wish Tomasz well at this difficult time Sad

Latest update: Tomasz Gollob’s surgeon says the Polish legend could face paralysis and admits his career may be over. The 2010 world champion was airlifted to the Bydgoszcz Military Hospital after suffering serious spinal and lung injuries during a motocross event at nearby Chelmno. Leading neurologist Professor Marek Harat carried out a three-hour operation, and revealed the five-time FIM Speedway World Cup winner sustained “very serious damage to the spinal cord”, but confirmed it hadn’t been broken. Gollob suffered injuries to the T7 vertebrae and is also said to be receiving support with his breathing after damaging both lungs. In a post on Gollob’s official website, Professor Harat confirms the 46-year-old could face paralysis. But with the spinal cord intact, he refuses to jump to any immediate conclusions about the future prognosis of Poland’s greatest speedway star. He said: “There has been very serious damage to the spinal cord, although it has not been interrupted. Tomasz is threatened with paralysis, but we will not prejudge anything – the next few days and weeks will decide. This could mean the end of his sports career.” Asked about Gollob’s prospects of returning to the track, he told Polskie Radio PiK: “I think it’s an end to his career. “Even taking into account the best possible course of treatment, Tomek faces a long rehabilitation that will last months if not years. “The fact the spinal cord isn’t broken gives us a glimmer of hope. So, right now, I cannot state that anything is irreversible.” Gollob’s 2013 season was ended by a serious crash with Tai Woffinden at the Scandinavian SGP in Stockholm. But Professor Harat insists the injuries the rider sustained then didn’t take their toll this weekend. He added: “After the Stockholm crash, Tomasz had neck vertebrae damage not thoracic vertebrae, so that crash hasn’t had an impact on his current situation.”

Morning MR, I am not an avid fan of the tracks these days but I do read your 'Bees' posts and it's not always a happy one when reading of a rider's critical event. One can only hope of a happier outcome for Gollob. As a matter of interest at what age do riders normally retire these days? I get the idea they think they can go on for ever!

Morning! Wave I would suggest that riders generally retire mid-30s, unless forced to earlier through injury There are exceptions of course Nigel Boocock rode in the UK leagues in his 42nd year; Ken McKinlay went on till 45; current world champion Greg Hancock is 46 Tomasz Gollob's last season was 2015 - his accident has occurred at motocross, rather than speedway
