@ petrolbonce. I for one was ridiculed for saying Rea was hopeless on the repsol Honda. Seems patriotism overshadows common sense most of the time on here. Smith will be even more of a disaster. At least Rea didn't consistantly fling it up the road, which is only understandable seeing as he was so slow. Smith, on the other hand, will be trying to prove he has something he's already proven he doesn't have. If he gets seriously hurt I'd sue Randy Memola if I was his dad.

Yes, Brad has been riding a poor, uncompetitive bike in Moto2 these past two seasons.
If he was so good, couldn't he have got a better ride in a more competitive team?
Or was it because the better teams didn't really think he was that good?
Nothing against him personally, but I find it shocking to see him in MotoGP. Surely there are much better / more deserving riders out there (& I'm not talking about Redding).

To all Smiths friends or whatever you are on here.

The reason people keep saying Redding is the better rider, is because they can SEE it, its obvious to fans and even more obvious to people who know what they are looking at, in fact any fool can see it.

CTDummy, seems like Smith is a whole lot smarter than you are. His choice of team got him into MotoGP, and the riders for all those other fast teams, where are they? Oh yes, still in Moto2. Nice one Brad.

A good start to testing.

Smith finaly has a bike which more suites his weight.

Smith will do be the one to watch this season as far as improvement goes.

But it will be interesting to see if Smith can keep his head. The English tend to get a little too civilised when they have sucess...
