All that said, he is certainly a far better rider than the Mistral allows him to show, and should be capable on a Tech 3 10000 of running with Iannone, Hayden etc. on the Dukes. Whether he progresses beyond that nobody really knows yet. The consensus amongst most journos and commenters seems to be that Bradley will do a fair job, but that Espargaro (and to a lesser extent Redding) are the real talents from Moto2 right now, and that it seems unfair that they've being obliged to remain in that class for another year while Brad moves up. Personally I'd have to agree with that. Best of luck to BS nonetheless. Never any harm in going in as an underdog..
