1st The problen wot be sorted in time for la mans why can't they just give him a hole new bike coz if this was Simon or Terol this would have been sorted now facted.

2nd I can see he going that at le mans well even though he done well ther in the past.

3rd I don't get all the hype over Bradley lol

4th I hate his new helment design that just asking for problems and STOP SAYING UNO.

5th He will never be a W.C Espargaro/Terol for the 125cc title

6th I could keep going on UNO but I think he should have gone to moto2 but looking at now Bradley will get his butt kicked coz he can't race in a group he can only race the track.

Honest article that did not come across as making excuses. In fact was all good up until the last sentence where he referred to himself in the third person......

It's a shame Bradley didn't get the funding for a Moto2 ride. He's done enough time in 125cc and I think if would have served him better to move up a step.

As someone else said, Terol and Espargaro look like the guys to beat so far. Smith's team needs to get his bike sorted if he's to stay with those guys.

@Marc Marquez "3rd I don't get all the hype over Bradley lol"

Well when Marc Marquez actually stays on his bike and wins a race from pole position then we might believe the hype about him as well.

Being a lifelong mechanic, I think I have a solution, it might just be the non Spanish rider in a Spanish team, with Spanish team mate, who had the audacity to nearly beat his Spanish team mate last year fuel connector??????????????????

I am joking by the way :)

Unfortuently i think Bradley needs to come up with some more dosh for an A+ motor, doesn't matter how many times you strip down an A motor it will never have "it" that's the reality of 2strokes i think the 125's could be on a slippery slope unless Dorna do something to address performance inequality now that KTM have gone Piaggio are going to win the championship so they think it may as well be the person prepared to spend the most. I think non Spaniard "Stars" will be giving 125 a wide berth on current showing and look to Moto2 or WSBK supersport route in future.
