Mugello MotoGP: Pressure builds on Scott Redding

Scott Redding has been warned his poor run of results in the Moto2 world championship must improve quickly after he slumped to a disappointing 27th place in Mugello. The 18-year-old threatened to pull off a stunning top six finish in the early stages after he surged through from 28th on the grid to 13th in just three laps. But when he was...

Not often you hear a team boss put a rocket up his riders asses, these guys are supposed to be professional racers, they definitely need to work on their training if the suffer heat exhaustion in Italy.

Scott showed great promise last year, I hope he can lift his game.

He's cried off before with fitness probelms in the heat... & he can't ride for fudge in the wet... he needs to be more adaptable or his career is down the drain I'm afraid... hard facts time... let's hope this sends him the warning he needs to up his game.

Read a comment from Scott Redding last season saying "Bradley Smiths needs to chill and lighten up", or words to that effect. What he meant was he doesn't party like me and is boring. I think it's beginning to show now and Bradley's professionalism and training is bearing fruits. The days of partying like Sheene & Co and then winning a GP are long gone.

hate to say it but..

back in February I got absolutely slated and was told by many on here that i didnt have a clue what i was talkin about and that I was some "armchair wannabe" that should learn a thing or two about bike racing before making comments like "Redding is over rated, and will be lucky to end top 6".

well....  hahaha.  Looks like i was right and actually them lot are the ones that aint got a clue whats going on.  Bet they all thought Haye would win on Saturday too lol.  I had a feeling Smith might surprise us and boy Scott down the road, and look what's happening.  Fait play to him.  He's grafting, and it's paying off....

Very disappointing

I had Scott pegged for a really good year this year and it's been all tears. If I'm not mistaken this is the 2nd time in his career than he's suffered from "exhaustion". That's totally unacceptable for a professional athlete that has nothing to do BUT train. He is in the same conditions as everyone else yet he's the one suffering - what does that say about Scott? He really needs to turn it around and light a fire under his ass.

When your race boss kicks you up the ar*e he does it to get a response and more importantly to see how you respond. There are a lot of talented riders lining up for a shot in this class so the best response is to train hard, work hard and don't complain and don't believe your own press, good or bad.

I'm probably not the only one thinking this, but do any of you think the incident with Shoya Tomizawa last year is troubling his mind?  After having all of winter to reflect on what happened, it can not have been a good time for him & he was only 17 (??) when all of this happened.

We all know he is a great & very capable racer, without a doubt he has the tallent to be up the front.  I feel sorry for him & really hope he gets back on top of his game again soon.

How is it that at the begining of the year and scott was chomping at the bit. He is up for it this year and he is training harder than ever. Now how is it that bartholemy (ex motogp kawasaki boss) was banging at the suter factory door asking for what was promised-a new design,upgrades and yet none of it has turned up and suter are pi55ed at Bartholemy. And that hugely known sponosr-marc or vds? must be bringing in all that cash just like that unknown sponsor-repsol! does for marquez,and wasnt tom luthi a champion in gp? Bartholemy needs to buck his bloody ideas up and put together a team that is competetive from day one-such as marquez's team. Oh and i suppose bartholemy has never been ill in his whole existence being on this planet? My ar5e bartholemy,go out and ride it faster than scott or pi55 off and leave it in the hands of pete benson-you know that chap who helped hayden win the championship-one of those things you dont have is this!
