Another one who doesn't have enough natural talent, like Crutchlow and Smith. You need armfulls of talent AND effort to win at that level, not just one of them. these riders are good, they'll just not make champion unless they get a 'Hayden like' opportunity.

Man, that LCR Honda seems to be a crasher bike.

Stoner earned his rolling stoner nickname with the LCR Honda in 2006. Carlos Checka holds the record with 34 crashes per season with the 2007 LCR Honda followed by Randy de Puniet in 2008 who crashed 32 times. And now Bradl seems to do the same thing. Bradl blamed the bike in an interview with sport1. Weird and slippery front end feel all of a sudden.

The bike and team must be cursed or something...

Man some people write some proper garbage on here, Bradl has done extremely well since arriving in MotoGP and has rarely crashed, generally he's been fast too.

@ pasconet...
I couldn't disagree with you further! I saw Stefen crash from rear view like everyone else no doubt, it was if he hit oil, it was a strange one, the bike just went from under him. I saw Bradl last year at Philip Island, your're insulting the MotoGP 2 world Champion... he is right up there from what I saw on a poor bike, I took my hat off to him, he really does push to the limit. Give him a Honda, a Yamaha in a year or two, and then let's see where he stands. And you must be from Briton going by adding Smith to your list of riders with natural talent, Carl I agree is a great rider, pushing, pushing all the time, but Smith, I just think he is out of his class at this level, my opinion only...

I want to see a podium or 2 from bradl this year. No reason he should be outpaced like that from marquez especially having a factory spec bike AND a year in gp on marquez.. If he has no podiums this year, get him on a crt or a ducati and get him off a bike that for sure is capable of winning.

Smith has yet to be proven.....However with more ponies Crutchlow was an easy second after Vale's mistake....as for Bradl who are we to say his front end did not give him problems...hats off to him for trying to push and keep up with Vale that is what the show is all about

Dead simple explanation really. He is a good rider but he just as many have assumed, that Rossi was washed up and has got used over the last couple of years of being able to keep him in check or get back past him. Clearly did not realise Rossi is back and was probably offended that Rossi got through and did not realise he was taking off at such a blistering pace... Tried. And failed. I have a suspicion we will see a number of such crashes over the next few races from riders used to being in front or battling with Rossi. What a rider...
