Bradley Smith urged to study Stefan Bradl’s MotoGP switch

Bradley Smith should closely study the approach taken by German Stefan Bradl in 2012 to help him become an instant success in MotoGP next season. Bradl has been the revelation of this season having quickly mastered the switch from Moto2 to the more powerful and technology laden MotoGP bikes. The LCR Honda rider has scored six top six finishes including a season...

With every word typed you demonstrate an incomparable lack of ability to understand the comments you think you're replying to

The principles of racing are the same, no matter what surface is being raced upon or whether on 2, 3 or 4 wheels.

As you know so much about this focussing phenomenon - explain how it works

I'm off to the pub now, so I'll stand more chance of understanding your reply when I get back after a few bevvies.

All riders/racers are different. Loris Capirossi and Max Biaggi come to mind as two riders with 'race faces' and didn't/don't get interviewed on the grid. . If you watch F1 some  talk some won't. Whatever works for that person.

thanks CH987

I was hoping someone would back me up.
You are spot on saying all riders are different and every rider on every grid has their own method of focusing or doing whatever they do and then of course some riders may want to just relax and maybe have a laugh and a joke to take their mind off the race.
I have met many riders through the years but have never met one like bultoboy who thinks it's a load of bollox.
Everyone of them undertands and appreciates the needs of some of their fellow riders.
Bultoboy get back to your dreamworld and win another championship!

John McGuiness openly admits that he is actually physically sick prior to senior TT start, whereas Bruce Ansty is known to have a sleep, riders tackle the start of a race in different ways, and if you don't respect that then you're no bike enthusiast.

Oh and there I was just throwing in your ability on maybe a BSB Cadbury's Boost Yam, if you even knew what that was, when you'd already moved into the Suffolk full works machinery championship.

bultoboy has never been on a race grid in his life.

Keyboard wallies that know nothing in reality.

No bike enthusiast - you talk some shit. I've ridden them all my life as well as co-organising events for others to enjoy so don't talk to me about enthusiasm

So Mcguiness feels sick, so do many others, just as some people feel sick before they go to the doctor or dentist - what's that got to do with being 'focussed'. How riders 'feel' has nothing to do with what was being discussed which was grid interviews disrupting a rider's ability to focus on a race. Some may not want to talk, just as some don't after they've crashed out, that's down to personality or attitude. Saying you don't want your focus disrupted is a good excuse for not having to put up with some twat sticking a microphone in your face and asking moronic and meaningless questions that you can't be arsed to put up with or answer - and I don't blame them.

If you seriously think that speaking a few words with someone stops them focussing 100% on the race when the lights go out or flag drops you aren't talking from experience. Do you really think they're that one dimensional

Yet another perfect demo of contradiction and bull

First you tell me this - that all riders have to focus on the race ahead.

If you have been on that many grids and don't know about rider's focusing before a race you have been living in a different world to me.

Then you tell me this

and then of course some riders may want to just relax and maybe have a laugh and a joke to take their mind off the race.

Is that really how to focus on a race? By taking your mind off it? Contradiction surely? How can they possibly race if they haven't been focussing?

Or is it that it is actually how I said it, that when the flag drops, they just switch on. Yeah, maybe that's it.

Bolt.

Look at Ussain Bolt at the start of race compared to some rivals.

Look at say.. Scwantz as opposed to Rainey?

Everyone is different and just because they don't go into a dark room, shut their eyes and go through a minds eye rehearsal, doesn't mean they aren't up for it.

People deal with pressure in different ways.
