Misano MotoGP: Bradley Smith 2nd on the podium in the 125 GP

Published: 31 August 2008

British rider Bradley Smith rode hard today, leading the race briefly, to take second place in today's Misano 125 GP.

Bancaja Aspar rider Gabor Talmasci rounded off a very successful weekend by claiming his second win of the season today at the Italian GP. A mistake mid race allowed Polaris World rider Bradley Smith through to lead the race for a spell, but Talmacsi worked hard to catch and pass the young Brit.

Simone Corsi battled it out at his home track with Mike De Meglio right up until De Meglio crashed out. Corsi went on to put pressure French rider Joan Olive on the final lap in a fight for the third spot on the podium.

Joan Olive was unlucky enough to crash out of the race on final corner in the last lap, costing himself a podium finish and handing it to Corsi.

Marquez took 4th place in the race today for the Red Bull KTM 250 team and Spaniard Nicolas Terol came in fifth for the Jack & Jones WRB team.
