Where is the "over hyped" Bradly Smith end up? As usual no where near the TOP 3 :-)
Would love to hear from the Brad diehard fans (who also fantasize on seeing him in motogp soon) some sort of "rational" reason why? E.g. He had a bad stomach and was ****ting on his pants or his leathers was tight and its squeezing his balls
As i have said before, Brad please get the hell out of motogp and let us enjoy a race filled motogp weekend instead of having more guys challenging Crutchlow or Elias. Maybe you should just race at BSB so ur diehard fans need not wake up for the early morning races in Asia.

I don't see what makes Smith overhyped?

He is the second best rookie, and Tech 3 has him under contract. Only four other pilots are ahead of him that have raced in Moto2 before, and two of them he could still pass on points by seasons end...

All this means he is better than thirty-three, if not thirty-five other pilots. Including a couple of former 125 champions, a few with MGP experience, and a double WSS champion too...

Marquez is slotted for a future at Repsol, Simon is locked in with Mapfre, and Iannone has Uccio and Ducati in his ear... Bradl is looking for a Honda or BMW, who do you think Tech3 should go for that is in a better position...?

Cause the list is not long...

Bmb, What an idiot!

Bradley is a great ambassador for the sport and gets a fraction of the money spent on Marc Marquez.

Give the lad some backing because not all Brits think it is clever to slag off our sportsmen.

Smith is joint 6th in the championship and can easily get to 3rd/4th over the next few races as we all know what Moto2 is like. For a rookie who is riding an independent chassis maker (who has 3 bikes to get data from!) that is brilliant compared to Marquez who has the Suter built around him, has bags of money and even got a PRIVATE TEST before the Aragon race and not to mention the difference in weight! Plus he has got another year to improve before he gets in with the big boys? So how can you say get the hell out of MotoGP when he is technically the one of the top riders in the world at Moto2 ?

I don't think Bradley is doing so bad, he's only a small step away from being a regular podium finisher & that could be as much to do with the Tech3 chassis as anything else!
I'm more surprised that Iannone hasn't been up front, winning more this season, he was doing the biz last year!
