First off I can't help but appreciate Marquez as an addition to the sport. His ability to redefine how a motorbike can be ridden on the edge, lack of using the media to instigate drama off the track and honest post race interviews. Certainly not perfect (who is?) but a great ambassador for the sport imo.

Getting to witness a rider experiencing their first pole position, race win, or championship (Petrucci for example). I will never fully understand the feeling to deliver some great results for yourself, team and sponsors under such pressure but it must be something quite special.

"Casey Fucking Stoner", I can't help but echo @Holypucks thoughts about the guy. Simply incredible.

Finally, I can't avoid mentioning Rossi. I started watching Motogp when he took over Doohan's seat at HRC and his rise to dominance was undeniably captivating. Whilst I still respect his ability, I took off the yellow tinted shades after seeing how he responded to fair competition with ruthlessness. I have a lot of compassion for anyone who has come up against Rossi in his prime, beat him fair and square (Biaggi, Gibernau, Stoner, Lorenzo etc.) and has had to endure the flak from the yellow army. Something Rossi has never had to come up against.

No rooting for Ducati any more, I guess. Dovizioso declared Marc is unbeatable, and since he is kind of Ducati leader and representative I'd take it as capitulation.

If I could bump into a few MotoGp riders at the local pub and join in some conversation over a few pints then those two would be right up there IMO.

Been a fan of rins since his 250 days. Always supported pol, especially since he seemed to be the only rider in Moto2 to take it to a young marc Marquez, albeit sporadically. I like miller cause he's my countryman. Majorly impressed with Aron Canet this year in the juniors. Have an inkling for Binder in Moto2 this year, feel he's handicapped on the KTM thus far.
