Bradders is an output from the Dorna production line of migrating young riders to GP glory. I knock 38 often but still support him , he is like Heydon or as someone else mentions , like Edwards . Great talent but not a true WINNER (Sorry 69 I know you got champion.....but !) . For him to state a 1 second goal is the most open and honest statement to make , it sets an expectation ahead of time and shows he is not entering the test expecting to go all out and trash it (sorry 45 Redding but I suspect you would).. .Anyhow , hope he does well but guns it as fast as possible - makes better viewing

He got this ride because motorcycle racing is a very inaccessible sport to most young people and Bradley was luckily born into a family that - like others before him - bent over backwards to get him involved...Hopefully Bradley can do well and inspire the 'authorities' to encourage more motorcycle-type activities in schools etc. ..rather than the mundane ball-sports

Anyone who has followed moto2 should know that the Mistral is woefully uncompetitive and that Smith was riding the wheels off it.

The ginger kid done got the best job in the world. So deal with it lol.

Go Smith!

You think Smith shouldn't have a ride. What does that say about Rossi? He's been totally exposed by his stint at Ducati, just beat the CRT's, and is now getting owned by a Rookie. If anyone doesn't deserve a ride it's him

The Britts push extremely hard to always have a countryman within the paddock. This season there's 2. Their influence is strong it seems. Though, Scott would've been my choice. Still, I hope he gets up in front of the Ducati boys, where the M1 belongs.
