The one thing you shouldn't read into is their women. Southern men who are public figures tend to protect that part of their lives. Take Tommy for example. I mean suddenly he is married...Jeepers! ...Team mates knew, but not fans. Never a clue. His woman was never a part of his public persona.
Same for a lot of these guys. I mean the ONLY rider with a public trophy is Marco Melandri!
Great viewing, though.
