Wouldn't mind seeing Gino giving BSB a crack next year, I think a 1000 would suit his aggressive style of riding. I know in the past that he said if he couldn't stay on the World stage he would look at BSB, I don't think he will be in Moto2 next year unless the results improve dramatically and why would he go back to WSS?

@ Tucker....
I hope your not serious about him racing in BSB! He's made an International career by avoiding the UK domestic championship, big credit to him for that. The last thing he needs is to be relegated to a domestic championship he's way too good and too young to even consider that. Moto2 is a dangerous place to go...if a rider doesn't gel with the equipment or the equipment isn't up to the standard of opposing riders there's no hope of making the front. There's plenty of great riders and champions in different classes running midfield or worse, its just a big a career wrecker as a Ducati satellite bike (or even a factory bike!) in Motogp. If Moto2 doesn't work out I can see him back on a SS600, on the right bike he would still be a championship contender....BSB? You're 'avin a laff!!

if u kick ass in bsb u go to wsb kick ass there then to moto gp so i dont think bsb is a waste of time also lets face it gino or bradley cant cut it in moto 2 so a lower level is an obvious choice..brdley in moto gp is a joke and if cal looses a seat over this that is just great 4 british motocycling

Gino and Bradley can't cut it in moto2? Some people do say bloody stupid things. Bradley is on a bike that only the Tech3 team use. He doesn't have the wealth of data that Suter and Kalex have so he's dong a pretty damn good job.

As for Gino, he's not raced at most of these circuits before. If the bike has nothing wrong then surely Wiliarot should be way in front of him, given the years he's raced in GP. Perhaps Gresini should look at his decision to run Showa suspension. There's a wealth of data for Ohlins but not for Showa....they can race properly without confidence in the font end.

Please learn the difference between loose and lose.

I personally think that Wilairot is a good target for Gino, both on the same bike with the same suspension. If Gino can't beat Wilairot then there is not a lot of hope.
I just don't think Gino has what it takes to be in Moto2 and was suprised he got the ride.

I dont think you can put Gino in the category of the others yet...and whats with all the Bradley bashing again..i dont remember Cal Crutchlow or Scott Redding finishing second in the 125cc world championship...and i think its pretty obvious which Brit has to most podiums and wins in the Motogp classes.

I still cant get my head around how some of the people on here have the time and commitment to go onto a motor racing website, presumably actually tune in and watch races and yet know so very little and then parade their ignorance like its an ASBO.
