Didn't Mick finally get a few farewell laps at Phillip Island after his career ending crash. Jumped on the bike did a few for the fans then put his head down and put in a time that would've got him on the front row of the grid.

Doohan is a great rider,but he was also lucky to be around in the rent a ride period where money counted more than talent to get a ride,after Lawson,Schwantz,Gardner and rainey had moved on he had it all to himself,only guy to really challenge him was Beattie who unfortunately got smashed up by a Suzuki too many times.
Not saying he wouldnt of won anyway,but had it pretty easy like Rossi did before Stoner and Lorenzo turned up.

No one does it harder than Australian or New Zealand motorcycle racers. They have to do it in a foreign land and cant make mistakes and go home to recuperate. They have to produce results and don't have the luxury of local sponsors promoting a local person in a local area. Its all foreign to them and they are foreign to all.

Show jumpers and 3 day eventers in the equine field have a similar problem. The driver of 1 very well sponsored rider (horses here not bikes) used to wash out the van and trailer, fix the horses up and then go out and beat her boss. She got sacked and then rehired because she was very very good. but her new boss sacked her as well and this happened for quite some time until sponsors got hold of her and she ended up winning gold medals. Australians and New Zealanders just have to do it consistently and very very well.
