Another great start by Bradley and a fine race performance by the end. A podium or two isn't too far away I reckon. As for Scott, lets hope he has his brain in gear for this weekend - no reason to be qualifying down in the twenty's when your teammate qualified third. Hopefully Gino will have a point scoring race this Sunday as well.

Good luck Bradley! It's been great watching your racing this year... shame it seems like your bike is just missing the edge the kalex and suter seem to have.

Keep pushing Brad!

Ah... So disappointing.

I think it's kinda ironic that someone has the gall to rip Redding off for one bad quali. Smitgh has been TERRIBLE this season. The fact he could be up there a few times and qualify where he did shows his bike's not THAT bad. Enough excuses. Step-up time, Bub. You can't expect a MotoGP ride if you perform like THIS.

Well from what i could see on tv the bike had plenty of potential he was just out classed by better riders. People keep banging on how good he his he's just average nothing special.
He would be lucky to get top five in british supersport.

No, Bradley has not been TERRIBLE this season, his Tech 3 bike has been the slow part, they are now getting closer to the FTR/Suter/Kalex hordes, he is a great talent, like Scott, but different, no need for any hate, just enjoy the great racing and emerging talent.

lucky to get top 5 in BSB 600. Lay of the crack pipe crazy joe.

are we talking Mr underacheiver Billy McConnell, or the elderly Aussie who could never gell with a proper race bike.

Jack Kennedy will be class, but please, if you have watched any races or timing splits on qulaifying sessions (not to mention top speeds etc etc) he is riding the wheels of the bike.

Can he take the next step, based on the final 125cc season he had (when outgunned by Marquez , Espargaro)

note they are spanish, and all on Aprilias, we will see.

Based on what he is able to get out of the Mistral perhaps, the aero updates sound good as the bike handles, just doesnt carry speed, plus he has already won around Mugello.

Not sure how many riders in BSB (any class) can say that!

Who cares? Scott Redding is the best English prospect out there, Marc VDS Ducati on the cards for him rag it and leave ginger bradders in his tyre tracks.

Cal, Scott, and Bradley in MotoGP! How cool would that be. Different riders, all 3. Cal already proving his worth, and the others battling to do the same.

Kent and Webb to step up to Moto2. No-one at national level standing out though. Danny Buchanan could be the wild card on the Kwaka when he gets fit.
