125: Smith back on form for flyaways

Bradley Smith arrives at this weekend's Motegi round full of confidence, following his third 125cc podium finish of the season at the previous round in Spain.

Although the Bancaja Aspar Aprilia rider now has little chance of winning the championship, he is desperate to win at least one 125cc grand prix this year before switching to the four0stroke Moto2 class in 2011.

At last the team seem to have sorted out the power problems that have dogged Smith all season.

“I always look forward to these three back to back races although it's tough on the body with some much flying," said smith. "I've been training in the heat chamber ready for Malaysia and got plenty of big jackets for Australia.

"Let's hope we can continue in Motegi where we left off in Aragon because we seem to have at last sorted the power problem.”

Sorry Bradley but you have not got a hope in hell all the time your with that Spanish team and their "favoured" Spanish riders. Even when you make pole they find a way of slowing your bike down for the race and the excuses we've heard as to why your bike is not as fast as Terol's this year beggar belief in plain engineering terms. Not sure who your riding with next year but if its the same team and your paired up with a Spanish rider you may as well stay in bed on a Sunday.

what has happened to bradley this year has been nothing short of a disgrace.the spaniards obviously got their knickers in a twist seeing his form last season,and are giving him terols old motors. thats the only good thing about going 4 stroke in all the classes,the wider range of participation will finally put an end to the blatant favouritism of a limited amount of manufacturers. only thing is it might cause probs in the future if the nation that puts the most financially into the series isnt getting the same results they have been used to for a long time.
