Bradley, you put in a fantastic performance again last week in Aragon and as usual the Moto2 race was once again the most exciting of the three to watch.
I doubt there are many fans of motorcycle racing around the UK that don't wish you great success and want you win. Keep up the good work because we are all out there rooting for you to do well. Good luck.

Greatly deserved.. A brit brought through in the correct way.. Intelligent, humble, polite, has a great work ethic, is fast, and fingers crossed he will compliment Dovi well in 2013..

De Meglio made a good start at Aragon coming through the field early on and it looked like he was actually going to beat Smith for once, but despite starting from the fifth row, Bradley still finished six places higher than his team mate. He showed maturity and patience to avoid using up his tyres early on or crashing out trying to make up for the frustrations of qualifying. When you look at how many of Tech 3's team championship points have been scored by Smith, 112 out of 133, (De Meglio 12, Simeon 9), it's no wonder Herve is a lot more impressed with him than the French ex-125GP champion. I wish him every success for the future.

It never fails to impress me on how mature Bradders is and how well he conducts himself with the press and everyone in the sport. I think his professional approach and dedication have got him the opportunity that many on here dont think he deserves. Thats a shame because hes a genuinely nice lad who obviously has talent. I think his rise will be a 'slow burn' and his time in the GP paddock will pay off! Good luck Bradley!!!

Went to see premiere of Fastest last night and Bradders was there. Had a Q+A afterwards and Cal was there too. Brad went out of his way to say that Cal had been somewhat a mentor to him when he jumped on the Moto2 bike and owed the former WSS champ a lot for all the good advice he was given around getting the best out of the 600.
Nice to see Cal giving him decent advice and even nicer to hear Bradders thanking him for it
p.s. Go see the film only on in a few places over the weekend and then you'll have to wait for the DVD...big screen is a must imo

Nice guys finish last. Get a bit more mongrel in you Bradley. When you were coming through 125s I thought you were the real deal,but maybe your too polite to be the next Barry Sheene.

Nice guys do not finish last..some do as do some complete ****'s. Same can be said for winners..they are not solely made up of ****'s either...

I don't think there can be much doubt that this lad can race...even with poor qualifying he is still coming through the field and getting good results...the points stats for Tech3 show that...someone has already highlighted that he has scored 80% of the points between 3 bikes.

I'm primarily a Scott fan but Bradders has really surprised me this year...didn't think he'd be beating Scott and yet he is doing so handsomely
