Agreed, great ride!

But I suspect next year is going to be a whole different kettle of fish.

Why Bud? Do you think the KTM will be far from the top performing standard of the other competitive teams?

For the rider, I believe the new riding style required will be a big adjustment. Also, he will be swimming in a pool with some serious talent and loads of experience, not that he isn't talented.
For the bike, it is still the same engine as the other teams, so no real advantage there. Although, he is going into a team with experience, I believe a new chassis always requires a lot of testing and setup to get it up to speed.

I hope that after Brad secures the title next week they move him straight to Moto2 for the remainder of the season to start developing the new bike.

I'm quite sure that will not happen.
KTM will still want to secure the Manufacturers championship, plus there will still be sponsor's contractual commitments. Everyone will want to cash in on the exposure they will get from being associated with the new champ.

Nice to finally see a piccie with Brad's mom and dad on it as well.  Hats of to these two people.  Since the boys started racing on 50cc bikes, it is what they dedicated their lives to.

Unfortunately that cannot happen.  It's all to do with the team's contracts with Dorna.  The Moto3 team must fulfil their annual contract with Dorna, while the Moto 2 team is not yet approved for racing in 2016.  All very complex, rather silly as well in the opinion of many, but I am pretty sure Brad would want to see out the Moto 3 season anyway.

I would like to believe that because he is moving to Moto2 with the same team, they have the know how, experience and people to give him a bike that is at least competitive. I doubt their aim is to spend too much time floundering around in mid pack.

Anyway, as long as it all forms part of the path to MotoGP for the young man.

Interesting comment:

 Unconfirmed rumours suggest that the South African's Moto2 deal includes the possibility of stepping up to the KTM MotoGP team in 2019.

Niccolo Antonelli is replacing Brad at RedBull Ajo Racing Moto 3.  Well done Nicco!  Hope you stand the Binderboots nice and full!

Did you get the shirt through Ridefast?
Because the stuff they have seems expensive to me.

Yip, Ridefast.

I paid R375 including courier to Cape Town.

Not sure that is so out of touch, we paid R400 for a Ripcurl T shirt the other days for someones birthday, and at the SA Bike Festival I was quite excited to get some MotoGP Merch but I really could part with the kind of money they were asking for a 46 T shirt for example.

This is also a good quality T Shirt.

Anyway, my wife paid  :peepwall:

That is not bad for a shirt, they charge R400 for a cap though...
