    I'd read that figure somewhere. Hodgie said at the Brno race though that it was nowhere near that, more likely less than 400k.

    Either way silly thing to do. Redding has never been gifted in the brains dept. Pity as we'll have no British riders soon

    Seems young Scotty has shot himself in the foot. The Aprilia test ride would have been his.

    Whilst it's nice he'll have a job and an income, it's dragging the bottom of the barrel really. Shame for him but, meh....

    He wants/needs to stay in the paddock and the shop window.
    He has a few good years in him yet.

    Who was the last rider to go to a the rider and get back into the paddock ? Pirro is the only one i can think of who's done it a bit.

    Under the circumstances I'd call that a result. Both for Bradders and Aprilia. Good luck to them

    I think we need a dedicated silly season thread, it seems to have started early this year.

    Good news for Jake Dixon. I've been impresed by him this year . Not many kids get plucked from BSB. But if you're good enough, you'll get spotted
