MotoGP » Bradley Smith:


Despite not repeating the podium of last year we were so happy with the result. The improvement has been coming since Silverstone. This was a massive stepping stone for us coming into the second half of the season and hopefully, if me and Xavier behave, we will have the new aero package for Indianapolis on August 19.

I would race in a grand prix every weekend of the year if I could but that might be a bit of a strain on the team and certainly for everybody around me. It will be good to have a break which I'm going to spend at home for once. At the moment I'm house and dog sitting with the family away on holiday, while training for the triathlon in Milton Keynes at the beginning of August.

Just before Indianapolis I'm going to put my life and fitness on the line by going to the infamous Colin Edwards Texas Boot Camp. It should be brilliant but very hot this time of the year.

In the meantime I can really enjoy the summer break following the result in Mugello. At last we can run with the top guys again and we aim to do just that on August 19 at the most famous motorsport venue in the World.

I've only been home and day and a half and I'm already getting itchy feet and thinking about the race.

Well done Bradley fantastic race. I and a few people I know have never lost faith in you. To take a bike forward on the grid as you have done for 2 seasons is something better than a lot of others, including X champs. I am in my 70th year and have watched "road racing" since I was 5, so I believe I can see the potential. Take no notice of the Knockers as they only show their ignorance of what is really happening. Keep up the good work and all the best for the rest of season.

When the only guys left in front of you are Luthi, Espargo and Iannone, you know you are up there with the truly great riders. And to have Marquez sitting behind you, along with more than one world champion, well, that's pretty damn cool, too. Keep it up, Bradley. Nice going!
