Exactly...I was never a fan of his till I met him last year in Assen during the box-visit. Top guy with the fans! I only wish that someone could get him out of his comfort zone in the last races cause his dominance makes the races a bit boring. :)

I'm really pleased that the comments that have been left so far are about Carlos and not the fact that people think Ducati cheat.
Carlos for whatever reason this season is extraordinary, he just seems to have gelled with the bike, the tyres and the team. Good luck to him and the team.

Exactly. The young guns want fight the MotoGP stars while they're unable to beat old ex-MotoGP dogs? WTF? I say none of the contemporary WSBK young riders is capable of transition to MotoGP. Look at Crutchlow. He should have stayed in WSBK for at least one more year. Only Spies who totally sweeped the WSBK field (except for life-form Haga) deserved the ticket to the highest level. Defeat Checa, Biaggi and Melandri and you can go on. Until then...
