I watched the Superstock and Supersport races last night. Jamie looked like he was in a different league. Roger Hayden was challenging early until his bike broke. I love his bulldog mascot...his wife is very nice too...It's funny how the GPTB (longride, Buz, serasuzy, etc) complain about Mladin not moving on but they never complain about Jamie or Miguel...or the Bostrom bros..I am glad these guys stick around. Gives the young guys like Hayden and Spies good competition to measure themselves by...i.e. they know when to make the next step to MotoGP (like Nicky) or WSB (like Colin Edwards did)..

That's cause all those other guys race and know what it's all about. They ain't playing King Shyt. Mladin thinks his don't stink, and walks around like the arrogant prick that he most certainly is. I would rather lose racing against the best, than win 7 championships in Pee Wee League and think I'm so great. I guess that's the difference between a real champion, and the King of Little League. Mladin is too good for AMA and not even close to good enough for WSB, or MotoGP. He should have at least TRIED. Give Nicky and Valentino a go, and let's hear his big mouth then.

I am sure Mladin would dominate WSB on the same machinery he uses now.. and Nicky thinks he would do well if given competive machinery in MotoGP. My favorite rider Bayliss is the classic example of how not having the proper bike in MotoGP is a waste of time....yet he goes bake to WSB and dominates on a competive machine albeit rules that give Ducati an advantage that Neil Hodgson didn't have in AMA..



Once again longride your personal feelings, and dare I say the emotions that come with it, clouds your judgement in this regard.

Uh, this article originally was about something called a "Jamie Hacking", wasn't it?

Funny thing is knowing that Hacking is going to take Tommy Hayden's Kawi seat. Yamaha doesn't want to spend the money on 3 superbike teams. Congrats to Jamie and good luck on the Kawi.

To use a wrestling analogy, I am down to two moves before I pin longride.. I think I pinned you in one :)

Good point...Seems odd that he would be the odd man out.. So that must mean EBoz and DeSalvo have the slots. I like EBoz but you would think he would be the odd man out i.e DeSalvo's youth upside teamed with Hackings experience...Go to go Check Soup (Superbikeplanet.com) for the latest silly season news.. That site is great.

This is complete BS.... First of all, Mladin isn't an "arrogant prick". He's the only guy in this series that doesn't make excuses when he gets beat. There's no "tires were crap" or "the sun was in my eyes" business that you get from other people -- when he gets beat, he gets beat, and he credits the other guy/team. Yea, he isn't Mr. Social at the racetrack let Jake Zemke or the Bostroms, but I've never seen him be rude either. As far as "moving on" goes... Well, where do you suggest he go? I don't recall Suzuki offering him a WSBK ride (although I have no idea why), and taking a 3rd rate MotoGP ride would just be stupid. Hey, I'm tired of him winning all the time too -- it makes the series boring, but that ain't his fault. Maybe Honda/Kawasaki/Yamaha should put together a better package..



Unless the guy's screwing your wife, you got no ligitimate complaint about him. He just does his job... better than everybody else..
