Little harsh Calvin! Bradley has proved to be a front runner and as he acknowledges the bike hasn't been all there this year. He certainly got my respect the way he triumphed in Mugello 2009. I hope he adapts to the package well in 2011.

Though I think there will be more cheers for his fellow countrymen Scott Redding in 2011, has the benefit of this years experience on the 600cc bike & will start the season as a title contender, he has certainly delivered & I believe is destined for MotoGP!

Roll on 2011

Im with Calvin on this . Put it on pole a few times but then finishes 6th . No question on one lap he can put it together but when it comes down to it he doesnt have that cutting edge.

I cant see him being a world champion in any class . He will be a nearly man .

May suit him better Moto 2,that is. On the other hand,next year he has to contend with rampant Iannoni,Luthi,Redding,Talmasci along with equal up and comming 'bar room brawler' Marquez,GP ex pat Aleix Espargaro.The list goes on...Simon.Not to mention Sofuoglu.Spoiled for choice in this class next year.
Bradly will have to crack top 10 in the final standings 2011 to progress further up the GP ladder.
Reckon he knows it.

James - Bradley is a very big lad - his physical size has been a big handicap in the 125 class. He will be more physically suited to Moto2.

The Kid is still only 19 - I don't know if he is good enough to make it to MotoGP, but if he spends three seasons in Moto2 he will still only be 22.

Good luck to the young man and Danny Webb too. Those that like to criticise - don't forget that before Danny and Bradley scored wins in the 125 class the UK hadn't won a 125 GP in about 40 years.

Next year is going to be primo racing in top 2 classes. I think Bradly could do just fine and hate to see the negitivos out already. Lets give him a chance to should what he can do. .
