    I remember so much being made of MTB being (gasp!) 38 years old during his comeback!
    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. :lol3

    Joey Dunlop won on the Isle of Man at age 48 in 2000. I guess by then 48 was the new 38! :lol3

    Why?

    He would just take points away from Guinters and Laverty, assuming he was on the pace.

    Or would he torpedo the BMWs?

    I hear Honda needs a substitute rider. :ear

    GP One makes a good case for going to Ducati, too. :wink:
