Japan used to be bike crazy,

I read an article years ago by Elton John, he had just come through customs at Tokyo airport to a large crowd who were completely baffled when he waved to them, moments later the crowd went crazy and mobbed the guy 10 meters behind was Wayne Gardiner

nice letter from the PM, understated and classy as one would expect from the Japanese. look at sentence #2 -- it's all about hard work, and hiroshi must have finally gotten his 10,000 hours of training in!

"We believe that the World champion title is the evidence of accumulation of your everyday effort."

Way to go Hiroshi. Class act all the way. I was originally pulling for Simoncelli but Hiroshi won a lot of people over during a tough campaign, me included. Must be very sweet to win the last ever 250cc World Championship.

And to the berk who asked why Japan's PM wrote his message in English: It's a translation, you bloody imbecile!

It clearly shows how much any chempions are needed in Japan as they have great auto/moto factories but just few internationally known sportsmen and such a hole in the department called "The Final Winners". Aoyama did it while eg. Haga can't do.
