You may be right, but i dont think people were saying Mladin should go to let others win. its just that its not justified to call him the greatest AMA super bike racer because he's won the most titles , when his stiffest competition leaves to compete on the World stage. how many championships would rainey/Schwantz/Spencer etc. etc. have won if they hadnt gone overseas.? Would Mladin have won the last couple titles if Nicky and edwards were racing AMA? I have all the respect in the world for Mladin and what he's accomplished, but feel he should have gone GP several years ago to establish his cred as the "greatest".
