I guess 38 is the old 48...considering guys like Bayliss, Biaggi, Checa, etc. winning at or near 40 years old in recent times.
I think the more significant thing was that he hadn't raced in almost 10 years.
We can test your hypothesis if any of the above can come back after 10 years retirement and be competitive.
