Is that the first time a substitute rider has won a Grand Prix? I know Kato won a 250 race as a wildcard but I don't consider the support classes as Grand Prix's as such..

Bearing in mind ive only been watching Moto since 2002.. Can anyone enlighten me? If it is a first then thats one hell of a performance


EDIT: Regardless of whether its a first or not.. it was one hell of a performance anyways

I've been looking through various web pages for history of it and I can find nothing as of yet so at the moment I take it that he's the first. (Im Moto GP anyway).

Italian commentary said it was the first time a WSB champion won a Motogp race. Not sure about sub riders in general though...

First time or not it was still a great race for Troy. He definitely belongs on a Duc. All hail Mr. Bayliss...

I donīt recall any sub riders winning a race, first guy to do so to my knowledge. Superb ride from Troy!

Troy ran a perfect race, but Loris did just as well.

I always thought that WSB had the better riders for some weird reason

Yea Loris did have a good race but man Bayliss was only there for that race!!

While I don't quite agree with WSB riders being more talented I was genuinely impressed with the Dominant performance of Troy. I would have like to see if Nicky had something for him. I believe Nicky could have won the race.
This race also proved that Sete has lost his stuff. For Troy to hop on to a basically completely different bike than the one he raced previously and win so convincingly is amazing. Loris has to be annoyed yet happy for the team.
