Poor Bradley

When he first came onto the scene, I wanted him to do well, but it seems he just hasn't got that 'extra' that the very top riders have. He may well improve by learning as he goes, but I just cannot seem him as a top rider. Pity.

One or two (including me) might have said that about Cal Crutchlow not long ago

He's only 1/3 of the way through his first season in the top flight, give him a break.

The kids having a tough time, no doubt..but I like his honesty and integrity. He's not making any excuses.

Not saying it's gonna happen for him. Marquez is a bit special and look at Cal now?

Brad's got a cast iron 2 year contract, rightly or wrongly, and this year was always for learning.

Like Jamie says..Give him a break.
