You're right, he's nowhere near Pol, Marc, Luthi etc. He's about 2 stone heavier. As for the elbow dragging, thats just his style. I've never heard him mention elbow dragging as one of his main motivations for competing and putting his life on the line for the enjoyment of us real race fans.

Wait and see how good he is when he gets on a bike with bucket loads of power. If there was a weight handicap (which there almost certainly will be once Marquez has moved up) which given the nature of the championship - single spec engine, there should also be a single spec combined weight! He will be right up there fighting given time in MotoGP. I for one will be backing all the Brits this weekend at Silvo.

This is a British based website. Go elsewhere if think it is biased. As for Redding. Out of 30ish Moto2 riders he is top five. I guess this makes him a front runner, no?

Redding's weight gets a lot of comment, I genuinely wonder how much of a disadvantage it is. It has to be said that if your tyres are giving up towards the end of the race against Luthi, Marquez, Iannone and Espargaro you'll struggle, the slightest difference is magnified.

Currently from the Tom Sykes school of motorcycles. Brilliant first few laps, then fade to back...

Scott seems to have gone from "young kid learning" to "rockstar attitude". What happened to the days when ex-gp riders coached the up and coming guys??
