Scott Redding makes fast start to 2011

Scott Redding made an impressively fast start to his preparations for the 2011 Moto2 world championship when he finished the Valencia test last weekend sharing the quickest time with Marc Marquez.The 18-year-old clocked a personal best time around the Ricardo Tormo track with a 1.35.6 set on the final day in cool by sunny conditions matching the pace of Repsol-backed...

VERY promising already

for young Scott. I can't remember the last time Britain had a rider in the GP paddock with such potential. 


What we need to see this year is a conversion from that potential to race wins and a title challenge. That would really confirm his talent. 

Here's hoping he has a great year!

I think Kev Coglan will do better in the Moto2 Class than Bradley, as he been mxing it up (and winning) plenty of races in the Spanish Moto2 championship fo the last 2 seasons.

But I agree, I think Scot will be in the top 3 at the end fo the season.

Not ironic Eddl more matter of fact

The difference is Smith has had top flight tools for the last few 125 GP seasons and has been comprehensively outshone by the continentals. He only won Valencia last year as Marquez fought against every natural instinct in his being to ride safe for the title. Smith really disappointed last season to my mind. It was his chance to step up to the plate yet patently he couldn't against the Spanish triumvirate. His station proved. Very good, but not good enough to have the potential to get the job done. Recent history is littered with good GP winning 125 riders like Smith who have achieved nothing else.


 Redding beats Smith hands down on talent, aggression, set up ability and potential. Of course Redding is very lucky to have the extremely experienced Pete Benson in his corner too.  Whilst Scott's size is a slight hinderance on the relatively wheezy 600's, that mountain Gorilla Simoncelli proves that big guys can win on little bikes.

 Just watching Redding's end of season form it's hard see him doing anything other than being right in the thick of it 2011. Smith I think will be lucky to break into the top ten in a couple of races. Then again Herve Poncharral's hired him and he sure knows much more than I!

Bring it on. Moto2 is going to be just as juicy of MotoGP this season.

Spot on Nostrodamus

You hit the nail on the head there, though that's hardly unusual. Bradley has talent but alas also has Pedrosa syndrome - get's the holeshot, get's caught, passed, doesn't fight back and fades like a pair of old jeans. Or he has a set up issue when the flag drops and again fades. It's a crying shame but one I feel will dog him his whole career. Still I too can't wait for the season to kick off as I, along with everyone else it seems, believe that Scott has the whole package and will be a force to contend with.
