People talk about the importance of beating your team mate, and Bradley is currently head and shoulders above Mike Di Meglio.

In a class where it seems the FTR and the Suter are the bikes to be on, Bradley is doing an incredible job on the Tech 3.
Either the bike is under rated or Bradley is making the difference...
..or perhaps a combination of both?
Mature ride from Smith in tricky conditions which allowed the rider to really make a difference.

Bradders has surprised me tbh, didn't think he'd get a good result this quick for a while yet so Kudos to him for that.
Regarding the comments about Suter, from what i was hearing from the Eurosport boys it would seem that Suter are doing a bit of an Aprilia and giving some teams more support than others. Scott's bike has issues, anyone who saw him at the end of last year can see that when you compare whats going on this year. From what Toby and Julian were saying, the Marc VDS boys might have a completely different chassis under them by the time the next race comes around. Time will tell but Scott is no slow coach and if the bike is right then he will be up near the front fighting for podium spots

Great Race Brad!!!! I was really impressed with your riding in such tricky conditions. Ever since your Mugello victory I've known you were a class act. During your interview even my Mum recognised that you matured, I wish you all the best for a safe & competitive season!!

It was a great ride, aggressive from the start (which a contingent on here said he couldnt be!)also nice to get one over on Aspar, beating golden boy Simon (in Jorge's eyes...) twice!! keep it up Bradders.
