Gino Rea not worried by Moto2 axe rumours

Gino Rea says he hasn’t been told his Moto2 future is under serious threat, despite team boss Fausto Gresini hinting he could axe the British rider ahead of the next race in Indianapolis.The Italian boss has made it clear that he is unhappy with Rea’s performances after the former World Supersport winner scored just one point in the opening nine...

I've heard Bradley Wiggins will be taking over in Indianapolis.

Whats up?

Saw Gino racing and even been riding at some of his SSTK 600 tests a few years back. He is a real character and a good kid. Maybe even a little susceptible to his own hype a few years back. Moto 2 was a great move and now he is with the big boys. WSS is a joke comparatively. _______ It is possible that Gino's time on wobbly proddie bikes gave false promise. Much like Sofu, wiped the floor against a not very competitive field on Ten Kate Honda's in WSS. Give him something a bit stiffer, like a WSBK and it is no deal. ________ Admittedly he had a few flashes of brilliance early in his Moto 2 career (and I thought he might get it) Sofu couldn't ride "REAL RACE BIKES" and ran back to the safety of the goldfish bowl that is WSS. He even has to pick on the elder statesman now like Foret he is so frustrated with his lot racing Lowes and former 250 rider Cluzel. _______ I hope not but we may find former off road and SSTK 600 star Gino Rea may not be able to succeed on racing bikes but a retreat to WSS (World Super Snooze) would certainly liven things up. Sam Lowes needs a rocket up his arse to beat the trusty Turk and the likes of Broc Parkes, Foret, and the mass of eastern European "talent" clogging up the WSS grid. ________ May be too late but all I can say is Gooooooo Gino!!!!

Not overrated at all gray..

What u may not realise is that in the test that pretty much secured him the ride, on the 2011 bike (with diff chassis and suspension) he was running in the top 3 every day. ....in his first outing on a moto 2 bike. He's also been wiped out a couple of times, including that time in the wet when he was running up front. Rossi runs up front in the wet, but is comparatively nowhere to be seen in the dry. U saying Rossi can't ride no more? No, Ofcourse not. When the playing field (ie when it's wet) is levelled, u see the class of the rider shine. I hope he gets more of a chance because I'm certain he has the talent to make it to the very top. I mean I know he can ride.. He scared the shit out of me on the back of a 125 scooter giving 3 of us a lift to the paddock at Donington many years ago lol

Confident!

Seen Gino race a few times live as well as every WSS and Moto2 on Tv over last few years and although great to watch I never once felt confident he would finish. Good rider and was a really nice guy when I met him but personally I think he is a work in progress and Moto2 might have come a bit too soon. I hope he turns it around if given the chance.

Gino Rea

I hoped he'd do well but i was a bit surprised at him landing the ride in Moto2 , but how could any rider turn down the opportunity ?

Ohoooooho Ginooooooo

Erm ... well a round peg in a square hole I think.  The bike isn't good enough either his team mate's position confirms that, or is he the problem also.  I agree with Stig should be doing better, he was offered the ride in Moto2 to my surprise, but also in his defence he doesn't know the tracks and it will take time to adjust to the bike.

Watched him in WSS a very aggressive rider, quite entertaining and frustrating at times, seen him bin it on several occasions when holding a good race position and under little pressure...still that's racing for you, done it myself on more than a couple of occasions when I was young man, much to the annoyance of my dad. 

Fausto Gresini should take a look at the whole team also before openly critising his rider.

Yours aye.
