    Here's to Carlos then!

    Spies.... Talented no doubt, but when it got to the world's finest level, his mental game became his weakness I believe and it just never got rolling for him. Honestly, his retiring from racing gives me that much more appreciation for N. Hayden and his longevity and competitiveness amongst the world's best. Cheering for Edwards for so long, I haven' t given Nicky his due.

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move its in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    Who knows bro, if he keeps having the same health problems and can't recover injuries without gaining others he may be done for good.

    Quite possibly one of the quickest falls from grace ever in Moto GP.

    Ben couldn't get out of his own head. Without fail EVERY time he was in the front of the pack and people started hunting him down, he would wreck. Like clockwork it would happen. However, guy is 29 and lives in Spain. Must be rough to retire at that age with a fat bank account.
