two champions with mutual repect. along with pedro these guys were riding there own race for years , hold the record for sharing the podium , and i can't recall them ever complaining of the other. these guys raced at the highest pace week in week out year in year out . while fans of other riders found it a bit boring with these three always fading over the hill together and grabbing the top 3 spots , others seen the special bond of three amigo's forever driving each other over the red line with never ending consistency. they were like 3 brothers with intense rivalry but unbreakable respect. they tried to destroy each other on track with cat and mouse tactics of brilliance , but they left it on the track and never shot each other down with the media. driven hard men on track and polite soft spoken gentlemen after work.

Awesome!!! The last 2 years have been REALLY great. Casey, Jorge and Dani showed us some real sportsmanship, both on the track racing each other and out of the track respecting each other. Great great stuff. Reminds me Bayliss and Edwards racing damn hard on the track but still very friendly to each other of the track. No mind games, no dirty tricks, no dirty riding. Awesome stuff from 3 extremely fast guys!! :)
