Josh Hayes said it best in his interview with Cycle News, regarding Blake in 2012. "He's an emotional rider, not a technical one, so he doesn't understand why he's fast or slow at any given time." After the first part of the year, he simply wasn't able to keep up with Hayes after the first couple of laps and would literally cry or have temper tantrums after the race, for finishing second, some 20 seconds or more behind Hayes. The guy basically is an emotional child with a grand sense of entitlement, an awful accent and pitiful camera presence. Tommy Hayden was awful in front of a camera too and I think that clearly didn't help him, when it came to Yosh thinking about letting him go. Hayden lost his ride after finishing a strong year and now Young. Yosh better hope the gamble with Cardenes pays off, or they will go from being the historically #1 desired ride in the paddock to little more than a factory supported satelite effort. Cardenes is good, great to watch on 600's, he'll do
