I have no doubt he could clean-up in any national series and would be a potential champion in WSC on the right bike.

And he still doesn't speak a word of Italian that I'm aware of. That's a shame, he might have developed a winning bike if he'd learned the language.
For little actual results?

I think if you made a list of all the riders that ever had more than one win (like Dovi's one win in the rain) Nicky is probably one of the biggest bargains in MotoGP. And he did win a TITLE against what was then the only Alien. And wasn't Gibbernau in that title chase as well? And Pedrosa?
