    It's been announced that Bradley will be the Aprillia works test rider with 5 wildcard rides. He is also expected to have 5 rides in the e-bike championship. I'm pleased that he's got something sorted.

    Kick in the nads for Scott Redding then.
    Mind you, he was already gone.

    Better than BSB.

    Or is it ? I saw "Redding, the highest paid rider ever in BSB" somewhere.

    If he is in BSB I think he will struggle to adapt back to English/Scottish (1) circuits.
    He should be ok with Assen and Silverstone, if they get the GP circuit sorted out.

    Definitely. The BSB crowd know every grain of tarmac intimately. And they know each other intimately. A very hard nut to crack.

    Today's rumours are Scott to go to Paul Bird in BSB.
    Danny Kent to go back into Moto3.

    Backwards step for Scott. Should go to Moto2. Far better for his career, Especialley as the new Triumph engine and improved electronics are coming in.
    Danny Kent has had his chances and blown them. I think he thought he only had to turn up and he would win. I don’t believe he is committed enough.
    Only my own opinion, of course
