Bradley is not very good ( and that is putting it mildly).
The trouble is he is good enough to beat some of the current MotoGP riders like Rossi.
It will be very funny to watch Bradley being fater on the Tech 3 than Rossi on the M1. He will be hated then just for beating Rossi.

Just hope he doesn't hurt himself..not quiet sure if this kid is ready for MotoGp but we are going to find out.Another year in Moto2 on a competitive bike might have been smarter idea,but good luck to him next season.

Nothing against the Kid, but thats a bad move by Tech3.
Concidering the are having the strongest year ever, why step down, I just don't think Bradley is ready for MotoGP nor he is a MotoGP material. If you want a young rider from Moto2, there are riders on a way different leag compered to Bradley, just look at Thomas Luthi, Andrea Iannone, Scott Reddings, Pol Espargaro and the list goes on, and from MotoGP you have Karl Abraham.

I mean, when was the last time that you saw a Moto2 or even 250 or 125 race and went, damn, Bradley is fast, not, never. Marques, Luthi, and them just can't keep up with the kid??? don't hurry, I'll wait for your answer.

im sure he is a nice guy and you have to say well done to being where he is today . but what has he won not a lot, I remember seeing him together with chaz davis being interviewed on the BBC He was getting all the limelight then poor old chaz hardy got a look in but witch one has a world championship to his name a whole lot of experience of many types of bike not only in Europe but the states too, and without the support that Bradly has had.

Is he ready? Who knows. The whole situation is so unique because of the relationship between him an the team & the use of a 3 year contract.

As for his talent it's difficult to compare him to others since he's on a unique chassis but I wouldn't be surprised to see him at the sharp end.

Did pretty well in 125s even won 2or3 races one of them at jerez by a country mile ..
Never raced in 250s .
As for moto2 hmm not sure , i mean is it the tech3 bike is crap or he's not good enough ? i don't know , don't think anyone does . He has had a few podiums though .
Anyway we'll just have to wait and see .

Bradley seems a nice bloke but this seems slightly unfair, and im sure scott redding must be wondering what he has to do!? But for scotts size and weight he'd be a consistent podium finisher and surely deserves a motogp seat next year way before bradders

So the cries of him not being on a competitve bike are ringing loud and clear. We can run with that.

Tech 3 next year is not going to be a competive bike compared to the repsol honda's, the factory M1's. Factor in the seasoned Bradl and potentially Spies riding a machine that doesn't break if you look at it funny, and he is in way over his head.

He can't compete with the people in Moto2 right now, and he's somehow going to set the world on fire with the talent pool in MotoGP? I predict not.

Best of luck to the lad but you surely need to win a championship in the lower classes before being considered for the next class up. Marquez has multiple world champion written all over him. Smith?
