Bradl had his chance time and time again, on a factory bike, and did absolutely nothing with it. I'm glad Honda cut bait, they were getting nothing out of him.

For Bradl's sake, he's likely hoping Aleix is not at Foward next season... Aleix will dominate him, it wouldn't even be close.

What are you basing that off of?

I would like to see that. Aleix may be the faster rider but no way he will "dominate" Bradl. I think a lot of folks are under estimating just how quick the Forward Yamaha is!

Uh I think you are confused. Aleix IS on the Forward Yamaha... The will BOTH be on the SAME bike in 2015, provided Aleix doesn't get a ride with anyone else.

Aleix is 10x the rider Bradl is. His results prove it... Thats what I'm basing it off of.

Good. He's capable of more I think. The stars haven't lined up yet but with the right gear and crew he'll be better. Who comes with him?

Confused about what?

I am saying that the Forward is very quick. Is that what you are talking about? I am aware he is currently on that bike, I was alluding to him not being on it NEXT year!

Bradl has 5 career wins and 1 championship on a quick search. Aleix has 0 and 0. Bradl is having a horrible year, Aleix is having an amazing one. If Aleix is 10x the rider that Bradl is then we have finally found the rider that is gonna beat Marquez every single race.

Aleix better rider than Bradl? Maybe.

Would he dominate him? 10x better rider? Get real!

Would he dominate him? Yeah, not would... He already is!

Aleix on the Forward would mop the floor with Bradl on the same bike. Hell, Aleix is better on the Forward machine than Bradl on a factory Honda.

Aleix is better than Bradl. So because he is in fact better, much much better, he should be able to beat Marquez because he's so much better than Bradl?? Come off it... Bradl sucks. Sorry. He has a factory ride and crumbles under pressure every single time he actually has a chance at doing something. Aleix comes across as a killer, ride the hell out of the bike. Bradl is just grid filler.

I, for one, am happy to see Bradl stay. I feel he earned his LCR ride with his Moto2 championship and enjoyed his pole and podium at Laguna Seca last year!

Outside of his soft tire specials on Friday and Saturday which race result this year do you derive such high praise for Aleix?

I really hope all you Suzuki naysayers are proven wrong next year. It's good for the sport for them to be involved and even better if they have some success.

Everyone wishes them success, and you are right, success for them would be great for the sport. But their track record in Grand Prix racing is not encouraging.

Aleix has 2 4th place finishes. Bradi has 1
Aleix has 0 5th place finishes. Bradl has 2
Aleix has 2 6th place finishes. Bradl has 0
Aleix has 77 points. Bradl has 56.

If Aleix is 10x the rider, he should have 560 points, right?
