re: "Ben Spies is a terrific motorcycle racer, his record of AMA and World Champiponship Superbike wins attests to that. In 2009, on tracks he'd never seen, let alone raced on before, he won 14 races, on a motorcycle he had never raced before the season started, and on tyres he'd never used before." don't forget all the while making up for DNF's and re-setting the pole position record to 11. all the milestones he accomplished in that single season earns him "rider of the decade" in my book. neither edwards in '02, nor rossi in '04, nor stoner in '07, nor bayliss' comeback from finger loss in '08, matches that in my book. wait, bayliss might be close...? :)
