Sykes couldn't hold a candle to Biaggi when he was his age. It's only the fact he was 41 evened things up.

Can you imagine Sykes hanging with Biaggi on a 250 or a 500? Thought not.

Will Sykes be winning at world level at 41? Not likely, he'll be in an overcrowed Eurosport commentary team having diggs at foreign riders like the rest of them do.

Max's ride during the second race @ Phillip Island will forever be EPIC. The way he opened and closed the season was great, hit a bit of a snag mid to late season, and almost tripped again, but pulled it out at the end to take the title by the slimmest of margins.

Hats of to Max, maybe not the fastest, but the man that got it done.

Should of had a one race ban for the way he speared haslam out at aragon. that would have made for a different story.
i do respect mad max for his ability and success over the years and still winning championships at 41, awesome. It was time to retire though. i suspect that the way next season is shaping up we could still do with him. its gonna be a slim grid.

Max had no control over his bike when he hit Haslam, and if you watch the replay you can see him trying to go in between Haslam and the guy in front of Haslam. Bad decision for Max to brake too late, but what happened was far from intentional. You want intentional spearing you should have watched Moto2.
