Good start for the weekend ! Although it's nice to see 125gp news on Crash, we could do with more detail, last year's pole time so we can see how close they were to a good lap time, weather info would be useful, was it wet or dry or windy? If people have to go to other sites for details, that's less hits for Crash.

Bradley riding with huge confidence at the moment. I hope he can keep it up throughout the weekend and give us another aggressive race performance.
