Any idea why the negativity towards Pol Esp,? Seems like the best prospect in moto2 now. Certainly better than B. Smith. He gave MM all he could handle a couple of times last year. Him and Redding were the only guys I saw not backing down from MM.

And WTF, how does the guy get his boot ripped off and not suffer a foot/ankle injury?

And to your point about Americans I couldn't agree more and along those lines I always feel like Hayden is going to end up at Tech3 because of his value the series and the american crowd and I still think he is reasonably competitive.
