Good lad, praises from those who know (not crashtards) saying he took to it well and looked smooth.

Small reminder...Stoner was something like 4 seconds off the pace in his first test...so lets not write anyone off yet

Bradley was actually faster than Marquez & Iannone with 9m mins remaining of test, he was consistently lower his times, then he pitted & didnt go back out, marquez went back out for last few mins and lowered his times, which i am sure Brad would have continued to do so. A good start Brad!!

Very positive start with the times going continually in the right direction. I think people underestimate Bradley, and should listen to those in the know who highlight the lack of development of the moto2 bike.

I'll second that Denis Kwok and al t
How some people on here seem to no more than those running his team or the like of Neil spalders amazes me.

A great first test, less than 2seconds from Cal after only a hand full of laps due to the weather. He will suprise a lot of people just as he did when he first went too Moto2
A lot of people on this site do not realise how good the top riders in Moto2 are, How long did it take Jonathan Rae to get up to speed on Stoners bike !!!
Well done Brad, a great start

It seems like Crash are shielding Bradley from anything perceived as negative comment - shame on you just because he has a column on Crash.net. Not 5 minutes ago there was another posting on here talking about Bradley's last year in Moto2. Now it's gone ... So long as it is contructive, all comments should be accepted Crash!!

Herve, I am a huge Brad fan, but the chance of a podium next year is very slim as a rookie on a satalite bike. This year Cal and Dovi were fortunate that Stoner was injured, and Spies had a year to forget. With 2 works Yams and 3 Honda's even Cal will be struggling to get top 5 next year.If Brad can finish in front of the Ducati's, he will have a good year. I do think he will give Cal a run for his money in the second half of the season.
Very impressed by Brad today, it was expected of Marquez though.
