Well done Bradley , you should be able to blag a few free drinks over xmas by telling people you out-performed Rossi in the final test of the year ( maybe a few women as well !!!) ha ha ....

DamZen1......Please explain.
It is well known that Bradders was on a 4th tier bike this year. He steadily improved race by race. I was reading an article where Cal was saying that when updates filtered down to his bike it made his job more difficult (especially the tank/seat upgrade). They've been given to Bradley and, not only does he approve of them, he actually goes faster.
Pause for thought, I think.
Rossi was testing fuel consumption, what effect that had on his lap times who knows, but it certainly doesn't detract from Brad's performance.
