For the Mladin lovers.
 
Nicky was asked if Mat was one of the top 5 riders in the world.
Nick's answer: No.

Yeah? The top racers go to MotoGP. Stay in the AMA and you are in third tier road racing. I'm not being mean. It's just the truth. Mladin stayed in the little leagues.

Mladin wasn't "revealed from a coccoon of red balloons". He ain't sheit.

Seriously, he had his day. I remember him duking it out with Duhamel at Daytona when he was on his way up; that race remains the best I ever saw. I wonder why he never went to GP; surely he must have been offered a ride at some point along the way.

" I wonder why he never went to GP;..."

I can tell you exactly why he never went, but I'm sure you already know what I will say.

I think he did go to GP once when he was young. He was on a cruddy team though.

I guess he fell in love with making easy money.

Cagiva 1994
 
Mladin went to grandprix in 1993 and raced with Cagiva. I think Nickys answer is correct until Mladin decides to step up. I hope he does step up.
But until he does he's no where near the top five.
