Last Edited 10 hours ago MOTO GP is the Pinnacle of the sport, it's not a place to learn

Maybe you should tell that to Lorenzo. After being over taken by Rossi on the last corner a few years ago he said he would learn from the experience. After being over taken by Marquez on the last corner Lorenzo said he would learn for next time.
No matter how established the riders are in MotoGP, they keep learning every race, every season!

This kid has his head the wrong place stop with these stupid blogs.
All you have done is prevent guys like iannone and pol who can ride on a similar level as Marquez from rising up the ranks stop blogging and start riding otherwise youll soon be forgotten.
As they say the cram always rises to the top and when has this kid been on top anyway a few wet race podiums. Ianonne should be on the satellite yam not a pos duc which hes beating you on anyway.

i have a question for everyone who thinks MM is only good as he is on a "factory bike".

If Bradders was on the Repsol Honda and MM was on the Monster Yamaha who would be the better between the 2?

I think Bradders would still be finishing the same and I think MM would still be towards the front.

Errr Darkwaknight... your statement kind of becomes void with that pathetic little Spies rant you just made. Let's see if Brad can get close to Spies' first season results...

I like Smith, and I hope that he keeps improving

But that was my point..flame bait!! Wow missed on you yes. My issue is anyone having a go at Bradley now is talking only from a short sighted point of view. My example in Spies He had a Great first year in GP, Second FACTORY season not so good, 3rd well we all know, 4th is already Done IMOP. Cal had a hmmm first year and then a Great Second year and now he is classed in the top 5 Elite. Now Based on that path do you think Spies would choose Cal's Slow Burn Approach or his own Burn Out? Smith is building and he may or may not make it, but at this point who knows give him a chance. For Every instant success (No matter how much a charmed life and MM is the most since Rossi, rules changed around him etc) their is slow b

For Every instant success (No matter how much a charmed life and MM is the most since Rossi, rules changed around him etc) their is slow builders for every Biaggi (Still the most explosive debut),Rossi,Dani,Jorge you will have your Sete's,Caparossi,Shwantz's that take time to get their but they do.In Sete's case the second Best 990 Racer next to rossi. This Hate is still unjust and all based on rubbish (His dad is rich, he paid for the ride, BBC bought blah blah) all based on ...BullSh1T!!

Compared to Crutchlow or James Toseland (who had a great first year, many top 6 finishes) his performance is really, REALLY lackluster. There are no two ways about it.

Also, CC and JT had to battle with prototype riders, and only prototype riders. Imagine where BS would be without the CRTs.

James Toseland (coming from wsbk) achieved 2nd place in qualifying and 6th place in the race during his first race in qatar 2008. Even though his second year was lackluster, he still had some top6 finishes.

Wrong, His 3rd year was his first win, all be it wildcards and fill in rides but even then he only had 2 wins and 2 podiums so his 7th race in. Bear in mind there was alot more track time, testing, private testing etc etc that just does not happen now. Rookies have it far harder in GP than ever (unless you MM when you get 3 private tests before the Pre-season testing starts!!). And I agree the hate for Bradley is very personal and uncalled for, but then this is a forum for debate I suppose
