Bradley Smith (born 28 November 1990) is a British motorcycle racer, who competes for the One Energy Racing team in the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup.[1] An experienced test and race rider in MotoGP, Smith competes in MotoE alongside a test and reserve role for the Aprilia factory MotoGP team, and runs as an occasional wildcard entry.[2]

Background

Smith's career began in the Aprilia Superteens series, before securing a full season ride in the Spanish 125cc Championship in 2005.[3] A strong conclusion to that campaign saw Smith secure second and a seat in the full 125cc World Championship, becoming a factory Honda rider in the junior category.[3] It proved to be a strong maiden campaign for Smith, with the Brit finishing as rookie of the year with a best finish of eighth.[3]

Moto Dreams

Smith would complete four more seasons in the 125cc World Championship, finishing runner-up in 2009.[3] After finishing fourth in 2010 Smith secured a deal to move into the Moto2 World Championship, partnering Mike di Meglio whom had denied him a seat in the series in 2010.[3] The Brit would go on to have an impressive maiden season in Moto2, finishing seventh with several podium finishes.[3]

Smith would subsequently have a mixed campaign in 2012, becoming a regular points finisher but without a trip to the podium.[3] Regardless, employers Tech3 were satisfied enough to hand the Brit a seat in the full MotoGP World Championship for 2013, where he again proved to be a consistent point scorer.[3] He would, however, have to wait until the closing stages of the 2014 season to secure his first podium finish, finishing that season in eighth.[3]

A third MotoGP season saw Smith almost claim his first victory, although he would ultimately have to settle for second at the race in San Marino.[3] Sixth that season earned him a fourth MotoGP campaign, although a poor season with his Tech3 Yamaha saw the Brit dropped at the end of the season.[3] The Brit subsequently moved to the KTM factory squad, although two seasons with the Austrian firm saw the Brit struggle to get into the top ten on a regular basis.[3]

For 2019 Smith would sign up with the Aprilia MotoGP squad, albeit in the role of a test/reserve rider.[2]

MotoE History

Smith was one of the later riders to be confirmed for the inaugural 2019 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, joining the One Energy Racing.[1] He subsequently emerged as one of the stronger riders in the field during pre-season testing, before claiming second in the season opening 2019 German MotoE Race.[4]
