Aside from the mountain he faced when he arrived at Ducati, this will be Vale's greatest challenge thus far. I'd be ecstatic if he podiums, even more so if he garners the #2 spot! A win would see me with a feeling I'd expect to be similar to when he won that race in Welkom '04. I've been a die hard fan for years, but have grown to respect ALL riders simply because of the ridiculous hatred spewed about this site from armchair experts. No TRUE FAN of this sport tosses around such utter disdain for these brave souls. Men who RISK THEIR LIVES so we can place ourselves in their skin for those brief moments of glory, wondering how great it must be to be live your fantasy. Sadness is all I feel right now.......sorry.........
