Am I the only one who thinks Mladin is a lame sandbagger? I'm sitting here watching Ben Spies pass for second place in the WSB race in South Africa and thinking, "I hope Mladin is embarrassed."

Big fish, small pond. I've always been amazed at people who are the best in a smaller arena, but who never take the leap to compete at the next level. Perhaps Mladin has found something that many people look for but never find -- hapiness and contentment. Who knows?

I think hes a good platform for the american riders to compete against before making the world stage. I mean hell, look how long hes been their, how could he not be a multi-time champ.

He was a loser long before he hit 5th place. They need him OUT of racing at this level for good.

Not to sound like Iam backing him up or anything LR but did you know that Noriyuki Haga has only one year less invested in the WSBK series as does Mat Mladin in the AMA/DMG?

Yeah. But one could make the argument that MotoGP is the top tier of motorcycle racing and that maybe Haga couldn't get a ride in MotoGP. So, for Haga, he IS at the highest level of competition.

I have one question. Has Haga been lapping the field in every race for every year since he entered WSBK? Case closed. I think you get the point.
