Jury's till out for me WRT Bradley.

This business of not being able to go fast when the bike has a full tank of fuel..well everyone has a full tank of fuel...and you're never going to win anything if you can only ride at your fastest for half the race.

Seems more in his head than anything else.

If he isn't at 100% from the get-go in Moto2, he'll find himself in 30th place before he knows what's happened!

So I guess next year will show whether his aspirations are realistic.

Lots of comment on here about whether Bradley deserves the ride, but very little on Mike Di Meglio - surely Tech 3 could have signed someone with better results from inside Moto2 than Mike? (or do they have no budget for a wage, so couldn't attract a star rider?)

50cc racer - don't let your dislike of Crutchlow's personality cloud your judgement of his talent on a race bike.

Tracati - Name a rider who has jumped from 125cc to MotoGP and done well.

It used to happen occasionaly - Neil Hodgson jumped from 125 and qualified a 500 on the front row. McCoy jumped from 125 to 500 and was better on the big bike.

Moto2 is their to be a learning stone between 125 and MotoGP.

The alternative is WSS and Superbike, but Spies is the only recent success from that route - JT was not a success. Whether Crutchlow will be a success is too early to say - yes he is easy to dislike, but he does have potential.

That's one way to look at it Simon.

On the other hand Try Chappatis *might* have meant 'Don't waste posting space, when I spout these 'words of wisdom' its obvious what I am'.

As for Smith If you've been watching the races its dead plain that his size is causing him drag & loosing him top speed on the long straights. Rest of the track he's quick and agile.

He's a fair choice for Tech 3 to make.
