Mladin racing in USA in 2010?

Just showing what was posted, save your twitter hate.

I use twitter to keep up on racing things. I've been thinking of deleting MM though, he constantly bitches about the AMA when ever possible. Let it go man!

What on earth makes his old ass think any GP team would give him a wild card next year. He had his day, but its over, move on Mat, you retired.

Age has nothing to do with skills my friend! The guy still kick ass. Mladin is always fun to watch racing.

OK, take the word "old" out of my post and I still stand by it.
No GP team will give him a Wild Card, maybe Yosh can field a WSBK spec GSXR for him at Miller, but no way for GP's.

That's because he didn't have the best bike, the experience on Just 1 team(*edit only one team for years), the illegal cranks, the Illegal Traction Control..etc. and not the same competition he would have faced in GP...

...that's why he killed everyone again this year on a basically stock bike? And why he's won more races than he lost against a kid who dominated wsbk in his first year and will likely be motoGP champion before long? I understand there are many people who've had a rough decade or so because of Mladin embarrassing their favorite rider on their favorite brand of bike but hey, cheer up. The asshats at dmg finally screwed racing up enough to make him want to leave and now all the so-so racers have a chance to win.

Yeah, he was on a cagiva in '93 after winning the australian superbike championship in '92. But that was Gobert that got caught doing drugs, not Mladin. Mladin had no chance in GPs because cagiva F'ed him by giving him the backup bikes/parts and basically he was racing on his own. I think it was at the USGP that Mladin came to the pits during qualifying and none of the mechanics even came out to help him. They stood there and waited for Kocinski and chandler to come in before doing anything. Even with all this BS he was top ten in points and raced and beat some good guys on better bikes.

Speaking of Kocinski; did you see his dirt track bike on superbikeplanet? I think dirttrack ranks up there with nascrap but the bike he had built is http://www.superbikeplanet.com/image/archive/jkrotax09/
