You're a top rider now, Bradley, and even the top dudes make a goof once in a while. Looking forward to watching the likes of you, Bradl, Marquez and DeAngelis scrap for it at the next Moto2 round!

Was at the race in Sachsenring and Bradleys efforts to get through the pack and back with his teammate and then pass him were the highlight of the race. Although german fans were following Marquez/Bradl/Luthi battle was obvious that Bradl would eventually settle for 20pts towards the end (he said as much in the race program article). So was disappointing when Smith left the race as he made some great progress each short lap.

You should come to California and watch the race!! Plenty of places for cycle training out here. Plus you could probably stroll the paddock and track side pretty much unnoticed...but that will change soon.

we focus too much on him since he is English. What if the guy was another Spanish rider ? Very few of us here would talk about him. He is good for sure but nothing extraordinary here !

We focus on him because he is Not Spanish!!!...considering this is his rookie season, I feel his performances are nothing short of brilliant. Marquez is definitely the one, but brads teams budget will just about cover the cost of the Marquez teams catering!!!.

exactly Cm73, Marquez has been outstanding and Brad isnt far behind. Amazing start to his rookie year to be 5th in championship with 3 podiums. i think i remember jimjim & tommivo spouting cr*p preseason, face it he's a quality rider who will go far along with marquez , bradl, not just because he is English

Marquez is obviously an exceptional rider but he is "The chosen one" so will get a lot of (well earned) advantages over other riders. It's nice to see Bradley stepping up well and we will probably see that coming up through the GP ranks is better for young Brits than going through superbikes, much as I love BSB and WSB.
