Thing is Ray his size IS an issue. Yes other racers have been big in the past, and they have been disadvantaged as well. e.g. Rob McIlnea had the talent to get into and prove his skills in 500's, but he was simply too big and heavy compared to the rest. One of the top American riders (cant recall which) commented that being behind Rob was like "drafting a truck" he was making that big a hole in the air compared to others. In M2 with a limited Hp control engine, control tyres, physically compact bikes etc then small size and frontal area, better aerodynamics, less mass accelerating & braking all make a bigger man more disadvantaged. That's not rubbish, its physics 101.
