BRADLEY Smith will look to take a big step forward as MotoGP returns to Misano this weekend.

The Forest Hill rider was a disappointing 19th at last Sunday’s San Marino Grand Prix, but has the chance to put that behind him at the same track tomorrow.

It is a familiar circuit for the 29-year-old, who racked up the miles at Misano during pre-season testing with his Aprilia team.

And the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix offers Smith the chance of adding to his tally of eight points in the riders’ championship, which puts him 19th.

After six rounds of the 2020 season, Smith’s best result remains his 12th place at the Andalusia Grand Prix in July.

Smith’s next race after tomorrow is the Catalan Grand Prix next weekend.
