We have argued this point over and over. Accomplishment in WSBKs does not necessarily mean squat in MGP. However, my humble opinion is that Cal should have stayed in WSBK at least 1 more year and mounted a title challenge. I agree that sometimes you have to take opportunity as they come but the right opportunity at the wrong time can falter a career. Right now, I think Cal is hired by Tech 3. Had he stayed in WSBK (and possibly won the title) Cal would have been a Yamaha contracted rider pretty much assured a MGP seat and better yet he would have arrived in the new 1000cc era which may have suited him better. But at any rate, I hope the dude does well, he is aggressive and definitely a racer so I would like to see him do well! Good luck!
