Mac, J-Mac, the King, Mc2, these are nicknames for Mcgrath that I'm familiar with but you learn something new everyday.

Although at the rate I'm forgetting things, one new thing a day may not be enough...

When Stewart was on a KX125 he was doing things the top guys on big bikes were not. I've seen him tabletop not 2' from a jump to miss it, lap after lap.
I remember Joel Robert the same way. Absolutely the fastest guy around, faster than the open bikes on a 250.
David Bailey, Hannah, O'Mara, Ward, Johnson, McGrath, the list goes on and on.
There have been a lot of impressive riders through the years. Sucks that some of us hammer them for this or that, when none of us normal guys have a fraction of their bike control or determination.
