And now that the talent is leaving AMA, he'll be MR. AMA before too long. Sorry, not a Mladin fan.......
Youve got to be kidding right, over the last 3 yrs he's the only guy to take a pole or race win from Ben, I am a huge Spies fan but Mat is a serious contender and I would bet a massive amount of money that he'd be contending for wins with Ben. And before you pass hard judgement on the passing remember its racing and the goal is to win or dont get paid cause you lost your ride cause your to afraid to go for the pass.
