yup, still rider of the decade (ROTD) on the strength of a single season. this, for those with more than just a superficial understanding of the technical nuances and hurdles of racing (cheerleaders need not apply). not even ROSSI has accomplished this. someone succeeding with the best kit...? best support...? on tracks they've ridden for more than a decade...? against talent they've known for more than a decade...? well that figures...? for some anyway. dare i add to his '09 tally that he "steam-rolled" BOTH wsbk AND gp veterans (ie. jerks he's never seen before) on his way victory...? biaggi, checa, haga, xaus, corser, toseland, etc. hell, spies didn't even like flying prior to crossing the pond...!? LOL
