"The Team can set-up a bike to a tolerance of how much you want to spin the rear wheel at any angle of lean in any gear and in any corner."

This comment caught my eye. To me, this is not racing.

Please give Bradders a chance, his team told him not to be hero and learn. This is what he is doing. Marquez was told the same and, unfortunately for Bradley, he chooses to ignore it :).

As for the blog, I welcome someone else's view. IE the Bridgestone comment.

At this point of Cal's rookie year, at his own admission, he felt like chucking it in. Good job he didn't.

Don't understand the level of the denial of so many readers ...

It is an English bias? Or ... Ginger? (kidding kidding).

The reality is Bradley will not cut it in Tech3. Many of the realists knew this before he even came to GP (because of his poor record prior - yes ... POOR record).

I don't know how in the heck he pulled off the Tech3 deal. Kudos to his management team. But I really wish he'd be on a CRT where he belongs (and if he performs as good as the older Espargaro, then give him a ride). Give Bradley's bike to Pol and it will be an AWESOME team.

I do enjoy reading Bradly's comments, as for the rest of racing heroes, post your racing credentials then mouth off. I do not believe any of you have any idea how hard the kid is working with what he has. Adapting to just one mm on ride height is over whelming. Now through in a wet track and 180 mph. Think before you comment????

Wow, these BS apologetics are absolutely delusional about BS' s progress in motogp.

Had he not been a brit, theres no way he could have land a ride at tech3.

Just about every rookie rider this year outclass BS, and yet he gets to be on the best bike for some reason.
