Well the BB shirt I recently bought has the words "Refuse to Lose" on the front.

I think many much more seasoned riders going for the championship would have settled for position yesterday. Get a fourth today, couple of points next round and its done.

But it is just not in this guy to come second, if he can come first. Even my wife was hiding under the blanket asking me questions like "Why is he doing that" when he got back into the front pack again with a couple of laps to go and had a slight bump with another rider.

Wow, just wow and a really awesome achievement.


Quite a coincidence, that.  :biggrin:

I saw a post on Twitter about Zarco testing the new Moto2 KTM at Aregon on Monday and it said he lapped 0.02 off the fastest weekend lap set by Lowes.

Good start if its true.

From the RideFast FaceBook page -

Yesterday at Aragon was an official IRTA test, and Johan Zarco tested the new KTM Moto2 bike for the first time and exclusive inside intel we have told us that he finished only 0.2seconds off Lowes fastest time. Looks like the bike is going to be competitve - can't wait to see Brad in action on it!

Brad Binder, what a joy to watch.

Going to miss watching you in Moto 3 next year, but hopefully you will make your country just as proud in Moto 2

Well done Brad

Brad's spot in the Red Bull KTM Ajo Racing Team is going to Nicollo Antonelli.

Darryn is staying with his current team, Platinum Bay Real Estate, but they have dumped the Mahindra and will use KTM next year.  They will still be a 3rd team, but at least a KTM 3rd team.

Lets hold thumbs that the team get a sizable added sponsorship to enable Darryn to kreep into the top 10 in the championship, which is where he will be noticed by the bigger, pro, factory teams.  Brad had to finish 11th and 6th before he was really noticed.

Darryn got 12th, 10th and 4th in the last 3 races

Give him a better ride and I think he will surprise us. By all accounts he is also a superb racer.

He is an excellent racer and the championship would be within his grasp on the right bike and with the right team.  His current team is a good one and delivered quite a few big names, Brad Binder being one.  The past two years they lost their big sponsor, Ambrogio, and are struggling a tad.

Brad took the new Moto2 KTM out on Jerez this past week.  He did about 100 laps on Wednesday and 80 on Thursday.  He rode without a transponder so times are not available.  According to mom Sharon, he lapped in what would be about 12th fastest.  His team mate who does have a year Moto2 experience lapped in 8th place.   It seems the KTM chassis with WP suspension and Honda engine may well be reasonably competitive.

Oliveira was over 2 seconds slower than the fastest time by Nakagami.

Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Day 1 I think he was 1.8 seconds down, but I am not sure at what time during the day that was.  He may well have ended over 2 seconds down on Day 1.

I saw somewhere that is down to 1 second on Day 2.  Will see if I can find it again to ensure I remember it correctly.

Brad crashed during Moto2 testing today.  He is on his way to a hospital in Barcelona.  It is suspected that he broke an arm.

Apparently radius broken, whatever that is.  Currently in hospital and will be operated on today.  It doesn't sound serious and thankfully, there is more than enough time to heal, although he will probably miss the final private practice before the winter practice ban starts on 1 December.

During yesterdays testing he was 1.6 seconds off Nakagami's fastest time.
