"All you see is the shiny track in front of you. At first I thought the shiny surface meant it was slippery and even wet. It actually is the complete opposite with shine showing grip and not slide."

wow never realised that. Bit like glow in the dark. Wonder if it helps the riders pick the stickiest lines through the bends?

Best of luck in 2010 Bradders! Some of us will be cheering you all the way!

Come on bradley.
The bike fans of the U.K are certainly supporting you or should be unlike the BBC.
Not heard your name mentioned once on BBC sport, Rooneys ankle must be far more important.

Good Luck and bring home the championship.

@ Lee i am in total agreement with your comments and i will go even further and accuse the BBC of been selective and discriminatory aagainst bike race fans and motorcycling in general.They only took Moto To boost viewing figures when other headline sports were not available.We have 3 young riders in the mix in their respective classes and yet i have never seen one of them featured outside of a Moto GP brosdcast.No mention on the news or sport updates.Nothing.Look at WSB not once has Haslam or anyone else been mentioned on any news or sport result broadcast.Its a disgrace.Surely there are enough of us to make them take notice.I pay my licence fee But tend only to watch Motor Sport.

I was not trying to say i want people to stop paying their licence fees but that the BBC should respect the fact that as fee payers we deserve some mention in sport result at the very least.Bradley ,Scott and Danny good luck to you throughout the season.You know we will be cheering you on where ever you are racing.

He's right about Espargaro being his biggest threat...even if he only came fourth. Him & Bradley are gunna have some good fights this season :)
