I said it before, and I'll say it again. Let's keep this midpacker in moto2 until he is running consistently! What did I say last week about Iannone? When that guy gets it right he's a talent!

Don't waste a second on mid packing bradders tech3, he's never going to amount to anything other than the occasional lucky rosterum. Sure as hell no race victory!!

All good rides normally get given to Spanish , Italians etc so give Bradley a break, its good that he's a chance at Moto gp next year. A lot of people slated Crutchlow last year and look at him now, I agree Bradley is no Marquez but you never know he may go well on a bigger bike.

Is Bradley Smith still getting promoted to moto gp next year? - I thought this arrangement was dependent on getting decent results in moto 2!!!

That Tech 3 Moto 2 bike is junk. Danny Webb was in the cometary box at the weekend and said whenever Bradley was on track, he was wringing the neck off that bike and not getting very far. Sliding into corners and pinning it everywhere. Give him a Suter chasis.

You guys think all Moto 2 bikes are equal? Look at the results over the past few races and see what bikes the leading guys are on!

Go Bradley!

Listening to Eurosport commentators they were saying he is over 8kph down on the other bikes in the top speed stakes. In a class where everything is supposed to be equal engine wise you have to then start looking at corner exit and aero. Look at his former team mate Mike Di Megllio, he was behind Bradley at Tech 3 by a long way, now over at Speed Up he has on a number of occasions been lapping with or just behind the front runners. It has to be more bike than rider causing these problems.

I can't see the point of having Smith's blog here, NOT because of anything wrong with the blog itself - in fact it would be good to have more rider blogs, but given the typical responses, why would anyone bother? The information is wasted on people who have very short memories and are unable to make any connection between differences in results and differences in machinery. Do these same people think Redding has suddenly improved as a rider since this time last year or have they noticed that he's on a completely different bike?

I'm sure BS is a lovely, lovely person. However, what has to be considered is not what he has done in the past,, nor to a certain extent what he's doing now. The big question is, what would he bring to the party next year ? Can he honestly and sincerely be expected to do better than either of the current T3 riders ?
Simple really.
