Bradley Smith not concerned by recent slump

Bradley Smith has denied the pressure is building on the British rider after his early crash out of last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix in Mugello. The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider made a brilliant start to his second season in MotoGP when he claimed a maiden front row start in the season’s opening clash in Qatar. He was then battling...

 Of course he is worried but that is motogp PR. He knows it is unlikely he will be in Tech3 next year but may still stay on the motogp grid although I think his best option would be VDS moto2 and a good shot at the title. Nice guy though and that ad of him spraying champagne highlights that quirky personality which is a refreshing change compared to most of the robots on the grid

Who are they to judge if you have a crush on young Brad. Nothing wrong with a bit of man love on those long lonely nights at sea. Aye!

The lad is just having a blip,what he needs to do is sit down and work out where does he go from here!!! he's in the same situation as Cal last year busting his ass for peanuts which is fine when there's light at the end of the tunnel but his mate has the factory contract and he's got Jack!!! and there's no long term future riding a Tech3 bike well there is if you want to ride for nothing,Suzuki should look at him as a long term prospect.

Winger..

..what makes you think the Tech 3 boys are riding for nothing? Both Cal and Brad will have made a nice little living out of that particular seat..

The only people getting rich are the two guys who own Tech3,go on then make yourself look a **** what do you call a nice little living and bare in mind when it's all over and the money tap gets turned off they'll have to live on that money for a long time,their are plenty of greats who have come and gone who haven't got a pot to piss in,but as you so well informed you can put the list up instead of me.

 Depends what you are classing as rich, I imagine Bradley has a fair bit tucked away already. I wonder how long it would take someone in this country with a normal 9 to 5 job to earn the kind of money he has at the age of 24? 

 

When you retire from motorbike racing does it leave you un-able to do something else as a job? Of course the tap is turned off once you have finished, it is the same with any job until you reach pension age. Bradley probably has more money than any of us will ever have at one time today, so i don't really feel sorry for the guy in that respect i am afraid. 
 
Back to the topic at hand, Bradley may be a good shout for the Suzuki ride actually. Could be a long term signing and help develop the bike, the more i think about it the more i like the idea.
