    Dovi was really impressing me last year.
    I'm sure Ducati compensated him well, but yes, he has gone from podium finishes and top satellite team rider to top-10 finishes behind the works Yamaha and Honda plus a couple satellite team entries! :eek1

    Both Honda riders are performing very, very well to this point in the season. I would imagine Honda must be pleased, more so than Yamaha who has only 1 rider in contention. And the fact that MM is there is really beyond impressive to me. And in a rookie year.... do MotoGP riders ever have a sophomore slump? Spies' second year on the factory Yamaha I quess....

    Biaggi.

    Dovi, somewhat; did less well on the factory Honda than he did on the satellite.

    Spies had some front row starts, podium finishes and won a race his sophomore year.
