Looks like Bradley Smith is signing up to ride for KTM MotoGP in 2017

Saw that. Quite a gamble for him. Thought Suzuki was a more Linley option but will be interesting. If it languishes as an also ran at least we will know it's the bike and not the rider! I hope they both go well.

Good for Bradley, the ginger kid goes orange. Fingers crossed that the KTM GP bike (does it have a designation yet, RC16?) is as impressive for a new bike as the Suzuki has been
Wheelies - they ARE big, and they ARE clever....

He likes a bit of moto cross so he will be able to ride some luverly ktm bikes instead of having his hands tied and having to ride a lesser Yamaha :)

I would think Crutchlow would be a better candidate. After all it is well known that KTM's crash well.

KTM sticking with the "If it aint Orange, its a Lemon" mantra for their rider selection too eh..

Where's Linga when you need him..
