Taz I have to agree with you completely... But for anyone here saying smith is better, redding is better, I need to say that... I am a big Scott Redding fan and I don't have anything about Brad, but I think that Scott is way better... anyway I get very angry when I have to read that one of them beats another by a mile and so one... Stop with that, it's stupid!!! Today was Bradley the best of those two, because Scott had a problem with acceleration of his bike, which was not the same as yesterday or in Friday at practice... if you don't believe me, go to his page and read it. But please just stop with stupid comments who is better, because anyone who is riding in this class is good!!!!!!

He really deserves a MotoGP ride next yea, even it's a CRT, because Moto2 class is too even and his style won't do anything good for the tryes... that is a sad fact.... not in Moto2, but maybe in MotoGP!!!

perhaps you should stop posting all the BS redding fanboy comments.the guy only cares abt his elbow dragging photoshoots and his ugly hairstyles.him and bradley both doesnt deserve a motogp ride. " that is a sad fact "
honestly i am sick of you redding fanboys and the commentrators (nick and gavin) contineuosly yapping " redding, redding" throughout the race and QP.

Marquez on a CRT bike would embarras half the moto gp field, so doubt they would put him on a CRT bike because of that. Though I wish all the moto gp bikes were CRT then we may get some great racing!

Notice how, after trouncing him in the 125s, Terol is continuing to thrash Zarco in Moto2, (as well as his notoriously sluggish Aspar team mate, so it can't just be the bike). Last year, Terol showed he was such a fantastically skilled rider that he could sit up on the straights while Zarco struggled to stay with him! So remember, before you comment on any rider's performance or supposed superiority over another, it's 80% rider, 20% bike!

What an awesome race, great to watch the front runners really battle it out. I always watch the Moto2 after the GP, otherwise it's such a letdown going from excitement to formation laps.

It has less to do with the talent (and that's not meant to slate the immense talent present in the class), and more to do with parity among the bikes. THAT is why it's more fun to watch. The disparity between bikes is great in MotoGP.

edit: damn, JapLance beat me to it.


I was really, really rooting for Luthi. He just can't catch a break, and he definitely has the pace to run at the front. Congrats to Pol for running a hard race. It's unfortunate that he almost lost the bike, allowing Marquez to get through.

Now THAT is the most overused MotoGP quote.
