@ Realist "Well, there are 5 factory bikes running at the front "in the tests", so what's left to disagree with Grendle about? Ok, you've found a 'hole' to worry at. However, I think there's 'factory' and then there's 'Factory'. You really think Bradl will get the same support as an HRC throughout the season? Also, you really think that Repsol / HRC would permit Bradl's team to be on the top step? Not unless both HRC's were on the floor and out IMO. Depending on how the HRC's /Factory Yams fare and stay on (i.e. I can't imagine a situation where all 4 fail to stay on) then I can't see any other racer getting a winner's Trophy. Bradl has a good shot at podiums for sure - but it's take exceptional and unlikely circumstances to see him or anyone else other than DP, MM, JL or VR on the top step. IMO we won't see VR on the top step either though, unless his Factory Peers have an incident. Just my opinion.
