MotoGP » Six of the Best: Rookie Champions

@eermi & @DuqueDomocos - That's a great shout! I absolutely agree regarding Harada. One of the classiest riders of the 90s and his single world championship doesn't fully reflect the extent of his talents. A shame he retired on such a low note after '02. I believe his title was as impressive as Pedrosa's in '04 but I had to be slightly pedantic with how to choose the list. Decided that a rider could only have started one GP in that class prior to their rookie season if they were to qualify, simply to narrow it down. Harada wild-carded at Suzuka 3 times before '93 so that unfortunately ruled him out. Agree with you that he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as this group though.
