Obviously you guys don't know the history of ben and mat. He also said ben would win wsbk the first time out. Ben is on a satellite bike this year but we will see what happens when the lights go out.Its ok if you like Rossi. Rossi is one of the greatest. But you guys get your panties in a bunch when someone really good comes along. Rossi also never raced Doohan, Schwantz, Rainey, Spencer, Sheene or Roberts. I would go so far as to say that if Mladin came out of retirment with his old team to make a run for world superbikes he could beat those guys too. And I hate Mat Mladin as a person.

Well ??we are all entitled to an opinion ?? but when a top racer makes one , such as the above,i think we the fans should respect it,and ponder,on what he says ???, i think ben has the talent of rossi??? but will he stay around for ten years,? and beat all the young guns coming up??? i remember spencer ?an awesome talent ??? but he kinda walked away (or lost the plot) somewhere

Rossi should thank his lucky stars Ben didnt come to GP when he was 22 because he wouldnt have his last to titles. I do have immense respect for Rossi though and at this point he is truly the greatest. I feel sorry for Stoner though because he is truly talented but Ben is about to cover his career.
