Sachsenring, 13 July: doubtless the local hero Stefan Bradl really wanted to give something to cheer to his national fans today but his home race concluded with a disappointing 16th place. After yesterday’s excellent front row, today’s 30-lap race was conducted in mixed conditions under cloudy skies, and from third on the grid, the German started alone towards the front on slick tyres and led the early laps. With the track drying quickly much of the rest of the field changed from wet set-up to dry after the final Warm Up lap and they had to start from pit lane. Despite his advantage Bradl could not keep the pace and dropped to 16th place.

Sachsenring, 12 July: the home fans were very excited today with local hero Stefan Bradl qualifying on front row ahead tomorrow’s 30-lap race at Sachsenring circuit. The German displayed good form since yesterday’s first outing at the 3.671Km racetrack increasing his confidence session by session and culminating with an excellent 3rd position (1’21.340) behind Pedrosa and Marquez. This front row gives Bradl an extra advantage as the German circuit is very tight and overtaking maneuvers are pretty difficult. Visit the section
Sachsenring, 11 July: LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl started his home race weekend with a productive 4th place (1’22.430) at the end of day one at partially sunny Sachsenring circuit. The German, who has high expectations ahead his home crowd, found his pace already in the morning session and continued to fine-tune his RC213V also in the afternoon session having special consideration for the tyres choice.

Sachsenring, 10 July: the curtain comes down on the first half of the 2014 MotoGP season in Germany this weekend and the LCR racer Stefan Bradl, the only German in the premier class, is keen to race ahead his national crowd. The former Moto2 World Champion is having an up-and-down third season in the category of kings; the highlight so far a great fourth place at the Grand Prix of the Americas, where he also qualified on the front row of the grid. Bradl has twice celebrated a podium finish at his home race: second in the 125 Grand Prix in 2008 and second in the Moto2 race in 2011. His last two visits to the Sachsenring suggest he might be in the running for a return to the podium on Sunday. During his 2012 rookie MotoGP season Bradl finished fifth and last year he finished fourth.

Assen, 28 June: typical Dutch weather has bedeviled the MotoGP field even today just before the start of the 26-lap race which was initially delayed due to wet conditions. The LCR racer Stefan Bradl, who started from the third row, had another tough race culminated with a crash during the sightseeing lap. Luckily the German escaped unhurt from the incident rejoining his colleagues on the grid but they all changed to dry set-up machines at a certain point of the race. The Bavarian could not find the proper feeling neither in the wet nor in the dry and managed to finish the 8th round in 10th place. Visit the section
