Have you ever wanted to create your own dream track? Take the best corners from all the MotoGP tracks, and combine them into one epic venue for motorcycle racing? That’s pretty much Bradley Smith has done for us today, and it’s awesome.

When it comes to riders who are adept at explaining the nuances and technical aspects of riding a MotoGP motorcycle, Bradley Smith ranks as one of the top riders. This year has been a breakout season for Smith, maturing both on and off the track, with the Englishman showing strong results on the track.

It’s a bit of a mystery as to why Bradley doesn’t have a signed contract for the 2016 season, though we suspect there’s more than meets the eye taking place behind closed doors.

Silly season issues aside, we’re pretty intrigued by Bradley’s choices for his dream track. Checkout which corners made the track after the jump, along with a video that explains Braldey’s picks, with commentary by his teammate Pol Espargaro.

Filling in for the injured Álvaro Bautista at the Spanish GP, John Hopkins was once again the powder blue of the Rizla Suzuki squad and on the Suzuki GSV-R race bike. Obliging Asphalt & Rubber with some copious notes on the Jerez Circuit, Hopper is the second rider in our on-going track notes feature, and we really appreciated the level of detail and insight he gave us on Jerez. Over the course of the 2011 MotoGP Championship, A&R will be getting track notes from each MotoGP racer on the 18 venues the series visits throughout the season.

Repsol Honda factory rider Andrea Dovizioso obliged us with his notes on the Losail International Circuit as the MotoGP Championship got underway with its now customary night race in Doha, Qatar. Dovi and the rest of the Repsol crew have been extremely fast at Qatar, and as one of our favorite riders to talk to in the MotoGP paddock, we had to have Andrea kick off this new feature for us. Over the course of the 2011 MotoGP Championship, Asphalt & Rubber will be getting track notes from each MotoGP racer on the 18 venues the series visits throughout the season.
