Stoner - Spies was a many times AMA champion, a champion in WSBK in his rookie season ... and maybe just isn't going to mesh with the GP machines. His riding style may be better suited for WSBK. Bradl was Moto2 champion (and some might argue only because Marquez was injured at the end of the season). Bradley has only won 3 races. All in 125. Has been on the podium only 3 times in Moto2. Bradl won 5 races in Moto2. Podium 12 times. He finished consistently close to the aliens last year and some might argue he is having a rough start this year. This is what I mean about denial. Is Bradley a nice guy? I'm sure. But relative to the pool of other riders in Moto2 ... there were several other riders that were more deserving when you look strictly at the numbers. I'm a fan. I enjoy a good race. I want to see the best of the best. Those that deserve their ride. Earn their ride. Because ultimately it will mean a better/more exciting race for me, the spectator.
