What is with this constant crying about weight parity? The smaller riders can't help that they're small, just as Redding can't help that he's bigger. What you're telling me is that if a 400lb lard ball with amazing racing instinct decided to race, they'd have to equal up the machinery for him. Sorry, but this is a SPORT, and sometimes you're just not the ideal build. Should the NBA have a separate hoop so that the midgets can dunk too? Or should slower running backs only have to run 5 yards for a first down?
FYI...Redding actually had a FASTER top speed than the midget Marquez during the Philip Island weekend. He has also tied him on top speed at another race. And, over the course of the year, he has achieved speeds within 5kph of MM on all but two occasions, and often, it's closer to just a 3kph difference. Even those two events where MM was faster by more than 5kph, the differences were 6.7 and 6.1kph. Nothing earth shattering.
