Dovi's going to find it difficult to keep up with Hayden, who's a rear-wheel rider. Just like Vale, Dovi is a finesse rider who gels with a bike that can enter hard on the brakes, corner on rails and has a good-feel to the front end. Dovi has had a career that strongly parallels that of Melandri's, which was 2nd rate compared to the pedigree of riders like Vale, Jorge, Dani & Casey. I wish him well, but I fear a season similar to Spies last year on the factory M1. He's going to be looking for another ride 7 months from now.
