If Smith is on par with Bradl last season a lot of people will be eating their words. Bradl was impressive last year, I would love to see Smith be the same. He seems pretty humble, happy to be there, and willing to learn.
Not a fan of Brits per say, but other than Crutchlow they are all humble, but confident. I really like Redding, and Kent. Crutchlow is likable for other reasons.
I reread this, I meant being a fan fo Brits because they are British, just like I don't root for Americans because they have the same passport as me.
