Smith continues as top 125cc rookie

15 year old Bradley Smith shows no signs of being overwhelmed by anything in his rookie season in 125cc.

The Repsol Honda rider came back from a run-off in the Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar to finish 22nd, a position that wasn't enough to earn points but established him as the top rookie in the category.

Smith was pleased with his achievement at a circuit that he only knew from videogames.

The MotoGP Academy graduate has less than two weeks to wait less than two weeks for his next test in the championship, as he travels to Turkey for the third GP on the calendar. A new batch of riders from the development program can be found undertaking a double session of testing in Valencia over the next few days.
