S THE WAY BRADLEY SMITH CON­TIN­UES HIS MICHE­LIN ME­TA­MOR­PHO­SIS

Cham­pi­onship lead in dom­i­nant Jerez race

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

I want peo­ple to ex­pect me to win – I want peo­ple to talk about me. My dream is to be here, win­ning Grand Prix races and fight­ing for the cham­pi­onship. I’m do­ing that, so who needs any more mo­ti­va­tion?”

“This year, I know who my ri­vals are, and I know when I work well I can beat them. It’s not ev­ery week­end, but I proved to­day that I can do it. Now I need to stay fo­cused and im­prove ev­ery week­end. It’s nice to hear Rins and Fol­ger say I’m the man to beat – but I know we can go to Le Mans and find five or six guys in front of me and me bust­ing my balls to keep up.

“That’s the best thing about Moto2, and it’s why I think it’s the only place to learn to go to Mo­togp. I’m sorted for next year (Lowes will join the Aprilia Mo­togp project on a two-year deal) but it’s the rea­son peo­ple are talk­ing about Rins, Fol­ger and Zarco moving up for next year too.”

And while it’s too early to call the ul­tra-close Moto2 class for the Lin­colnshire rider, he’s con­vinced that he’s do­ing ex­actly what he needs to do
