MotoGP » Moto2: Redding seeks ‘flying start’ to second half


From what I've seen pols riding style looks a little harder on the tyres in the corners than most, always sliding it out under brakes then changes his line a little as the race progresses to accommodate the lack of grip. I'm not sure others may do similar but the camera only sticks with the top three and I haven't noticed anyone doing it quite like him. That could be the reason, although a few races back I saw a close up of the top threes rear tires (which pol was part of) and they all looked in a similar state.

MotoGP » Moto2: Redding seeks ‘flying start’ to second half


Enough with the weight factor thing. He knew that going in to be a motorcycle racer he was a little taller/weighed a little more. It's like me getting on a horse and complaining I didn't win the Kentucky derby because all the other jockeys are 50 kilos lighter and are 3 foot shorter. While it is obviously an advantage being lighter (the small amount of minimum weight increase has looked to help a little) if it is the excuse that's going to be used when you haven't won races/championships then maybe a different line of work is more suited. Tall people have won races/championships in the past.

MotoGP » Moto2: Redding seeks ‘flying start’ to second half


“We need to be back at the top of our game, like we were at the beginning of the year,” Scott Redding. Pol falling off was what gave you strength championship wise. Scott's had some great performances this year, The two battles they've had to the finish have been fantastic races, Hope it continues. For me Scott comes across a little two arrogant. What with the muscle flex and the Never give up???? Sticker, yes I am aware they have both been having a go at each other, just thought the sticker was to much, save it for the track. Despite that, I'm glad he's on his way to Honda next year. From what he's been doing so far it is well deserved.
