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.

Why is it if you don't like brad you automatically don't ride or know anything about motogp? Stop taking his criticism to heart, this page proves that ALL riders have haters, (all be it a little stupidly because at the end of the day once the helmets on who cares as long as its a good race) some more than others. I'm sure he's less phased by it than some of the people who rush to his defence. If the duc doesn't improve next year then there is absolutely no reason BS shouldn't finish ahead of cal, he will have a year under his belt and be on a better bike. So when he does put it in front of cal ill probably say. "he put it in front of cal, well so he should" in all fairness I do think there are quite a few riders in moto2 that if given 6months to a year on the tech3 would be able to put it in front of the Ducati even with cal on it. But that's just my opinion. At any rate Bradders has got the ride so good on him and for the good of the sport lets hope he gets as competitive as the bike

Sorry brad. While I would love nothing more than to see you up the top to add to the racing, the more the merrier. You haven't won me over, and think your thoughts about your self so far are a little over rated. While I see where you're coming from in some ways I think a top six with everyone fit will not happen. The fact yamaha would have broken your contract if cal had decided to stay comes across as tech3 might want ya but Yamaha are not phased either way. Good luck with the rest of the year, and although my post has come across negative I do hope you improve, even prove me wrong. :)
