I was one of those doubters but this makes it a little clearer why he moved to MotoGP. Maybe I would have done the same in his boots.

He's such a pleasant chap though, he should enter a grinning competition with Tom Sykes.

Good interview from Michael Laverty. You can see the guy has self-belief but he's not cocky and knows he's got to work for everything he gets.

IMO he's done really well so far, and it'd be nice to see ML and the PBM1 develop, improve and move forward.

I always keep an eye out on the screen for Laverty's position and keep track of how he's doing - even though he's not going to be seen on screen for more than a second or two.

I wish him good luck and success for the rest of the season. If (IF) he can attain the target of running close or with the Aspar bikes I think there's ll be a few eyebrows raised in the Paddock!

Michael Laverty is clearly the most articulate rider in the paddock if nothing else. This article was a good read as was his more technical one for MCN. I feel like he's much faster than his results elude too and his comments about how he feels on a GP bike are very interesting. I hope PBM drop an M1 engine in there next year that would be sweeeeet.

I hope that all the good riders on CRTs will get on more competitive bikes that allow them to shine, even if outside of the top 10. It's not that hard to see when a rider is doing good on a decent bike, but very hard to understand what's happening on a bad bike.
Also, to, we need more info on what's happening with the CRT boys. These kind of interviews are a breath of fresh air.

Got to say that have been digging up some decent interviews with riders recently. Of which this is one.

I've been known to slate but I have to applaud half decent journalism when I read it.
