It's not so difficult to guess that I've been following Dovi since his minibike days on the Adriatic beaches (in which he used to duel against that other kid Simoncelli), then through his well deserved 125 world title and his 250 duels against Pedrosa, Lorenzo and Stoner, and then of course in MotoGP where he beat Rossi in his very first GP. And of course I know how Honda used him and then let him down (but the litigation was a mistake on his part). Anyway... Now that Dovi's dreams are finally coming true, why not dedicate a thread.

Btw, if you give for granted that all Italian lovers of this sport just blindly follow Rossi, that's so terribly wrong...
True that, Biaggi fans hated him with a passion.
I'm just happy to see a non Spaniard with a genuine shot at the title,

I was just talking to my buddy Rog, and we were reminiscing how HRC tried to fuck over Dovi; poetic for those of us who remember, that HRC would suffer embarrassment in the UK where Dovi scored his first win for Honda. Had HRC (or any other manufacturer for that matter) treated the Golden Goose like they did Dovi your compatriots and minions the world over would have been mounting an armed offensive. But not much Italian support shown to Dovi when he had to threaten HRC with litigation to simply honor their contract as I recall. No petitions, boycotts, million yellow march, go fund mes. No cancelled press conferences or media gag orders. They treated Dovi like an American in GP, was the thought I've always had: work ethic, underrated, fucked over, without the asshat antics. Anyway, I'm glad you boys are getting on-board now that he is winning races. Nothing fabricates glory hunting fans like winning after all. You're not suddenly rooting for Manchester United are you? Will Italians be turning in their 46 hats, teeshirts, umbrellas, for 04? Haha. I'm just busting your balls J'04.

Ok hes riding the Stoner designed, developed and built Duc.

But hes doing pretty good.

Who knows, maybe some day he will be a contender.
How many races battling directly with the best he has to won to be a contender?

You must be kidding for sure.

If it isn't an inferior machine all credit to everyone involved at Ducati. They have hardly been the foremost object of Dorna's favour these recent years.

Thanks to his coach Dovi can now tie an anglers loop and bait his own hook.

As long as Rossi is racing, nobody else will ever be favored by Dorna.

Could you expand upon this please? I was unaware there were legal issues between Honda and Dovi. I tried asking The Google and didn't find much of anything.

They were going to put him on a satellite team with a supposedly full factory bike to accommodate Stoner. He enforced his contract to ride on the full factory team, which ran bikes for 3 riders in 2011, Stoner, Pedrosa and Dovi. Some were of the opinion he only got a real full spec factory bike when Pedrosa was injured.
