Selected Scott Redding Comments

“It's the first time since we took delivery of the new bikes that we've had good testing conditions and we certainly made the most of them,” said Redding. “We've made some changes to my riding position, as well as making the bike quicker to turn, but I think there's still more to come in terms of set-up.”

Redding ended the three-day test by completing a 26-lap race simulation, with his average lap time just a few tenths outside of his fastest lap of 1'42.9s.

“Today's race simulation was really important, because it was the first chance for me to see how the handling is affected once the tyres started to go off. I was quite surprise

with the result, there is definitely a drop off, but it's nowhere near as steep as we experienced in the races this year, and it's possible to maintain a pretty consistent lap time.”

Tony Elias got the jump on all when moto2 started...

To be fair though Elias has been out for a year and perhaps that shows too. But I dont see Elias as a contender for the title.

Moto2 will steal the show this year...again. That and WSBK. Hopefully Repsol wont ruin it all with their huge budget advantage.

Lot of talk about Redding.

Just bike development guys...

And there are some big names taking it easy too...

Interesting how most support people who also live in places contained within the same line drawn up by the elite. The lines I am talking about are the national borders. Think small...die small.

Lot of talk about Redding because people really think he is one of the standout talents.

Yes it is bike development, but his is the newest, so may go the furthest, and he is on front already, but as you say, it is just testing.

If you are seriously trying to make a point about British people being Nationalistic you are so very wrong. We support many riders from different countries, try listening to the Spanish media if you want to hear Nationalists.
