MotoGP » Bradley Smith:

Assen

My only regret was I missed the first stage of the Tour De France that was not so far from Assen at Liege in Belgium. From now on I'll be watching on the tele for the next month when not racing or practicing.

Finally congratulations to Danny Kent for his first podium finish in that amazing Moto3 race. I can honestly say I think it was the best race I've ever seen.

Normally I don't watch Moto3 live because I'm getting ready for my race but I was glued to the screen for the first six laps before I had to put on my leathers. I could hear the crowd roaring towards the finish and so the first thing I did when I got back at 10.00pm on Sunday night from Goodwood was switch on the tele to watch the finish – I wasn't disappointed and what a ride by Vinales on the Honda to beat the KTMs. Should be fun in Sachsenring.

In the meantime it's back to Ryanair instead of Steve Parrish's 'Plummet Airlines for the trip to Leipzig on route to the Sachsenring.

Before all the predictable comments about how Bradley doesn't deserve a ride in MotoGP next season he had a great race at the weekend on a poor bike. It's pretty obvious Herve expected Cal to do a Toseland and have a bad second season and the fact that both Cal and Dovi are doing so well has left him in a difficult position.

Well done to Brad. There is nothing like beating most of the field on a inferior bike. No doubt those who know about these things will have been impressed. He is clearly riding the wheels off the thing.
