Congrats to MM, a well deserved championship. JL did everything in his power to close the gap, and I think he found glory and admiration from many fans in his pursuit of the championship. And congrats to Nicky, beat Dovi on the old bike in his final race and most importantly, he has been liberated from Ducati! It seemed like JL's delaying tactics were more dangerous than flat out racing. The lines he was taking, and the places he slowed markedly caused the riders behind to evade, run wide, etc. I wonder if he was aware of that, and just said f-it, I'm going to ride hard and take what comes. I don't think those guys know much of what happens behind them, but who knows. Good season. MM will have a tough defense next year, but it should be good for us fans.
