Bradley Smith:MotoGP

Wednesday, November 14 2012

Fresh from two years in the Moto 2 Championship, Britain’s very own Bradley Smith (pictured with Talan Skeels-Piggins) took to the track in Valencia today for his first foray into the MotoGP, aboard his Yamaha YZR-M1.

Bradley, who has joined Cal Crutchlow in the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team, managed to complete eight laps despite less that perfect conditions, recording a best lap-time of 148.249. Speaking of his induction into the Premier Class, Bradley said his first test on the bike ‘really hit home what a big day in [my] career it was.’
