    Good on him, he fought hard for it.

    Don't know how he rides that thing, wobbling like a Coles shopping trolley down the main straight...@300km/h.

    Got a win in 4 classes, now, 3 GP and 1 WSBK.

    He's a good rider, shame it never worked out for him in MotoGP.

    I know it is early days but imagine if he won the title on the DUKE. Would be a great send off for the big L2 before it's replaced by the V4.

    Great stuff, perhaps WSBK will be more interesting this year

    I still think one of the best MotoGP images ever was him coming through Turn 12 sideways, rear tyre billowing smoke and waving to the crowd with one hand, before crossing the finish line in first place.
