@ donnybravo, Yeah but he also completed the race unlike Ianone and Bradl (his direct comparsons) and beat Pirro, an experianced Motogp rider and as a factory test rider should have hundreds of hours on the bike by now and Barbera who out qualified him. La xtream, be realistic, thats exactly what he is, its like you getting off your road bike and onto a gp bike and expecting you to win after 9 days of riding. Everyone's raving about Cal be he wasn't exactly on fire hos first year either. The biggest pjroblem with motogp is that you are expected to perform immediately in a one or 2 year contract if you are lucky. Everyone takes time to get dialled in but on a one year contract there is bearly enough time to get comfortable on a new bike let alone new tyres and brakes.
