@cmpunk - agreed.

And given Scott's continued vocal frustrations about the weight limit, it's now or never for him. I hope he's up to it. A repeat of last years podium sweep (or rather lack of) would be a death sentence for his career.

Why didn't they just put him a diet if he was overweight?

I mean jockeys keep their weight down by doing all sorts.

Needs to be more dedicated. Liposuction etc

@Nakoma

It's not fat that's the issue. Scott is one of the (if not THE) tallest guys in Moto2. Physical fitness is required to race these bikes and therefore the muscle mass he has is greater than the Spanish dwarves.

Bored of hearing about this weight problem as Im sure Redding is too. Suggest he gets on the bike and rides it as hard as possible like other bigger guys - Wil Hartog, Christian Bourgeois, Marco Simoncelli, Dave Jefferies, Michael Dunlop, John Mcguiness etc etc
If he doesnt, then he should quickly move to WSBK or even BSB
