Poised to win a championship, I would say Valentino Rossi in 2006. He came into the last race, last round with the championship lead in points and started on pole (no less). He goes out and dumps his bike under pressure. The man with the poise and strength not to crack under these circumstances, Hayden, through sheer determination and talent, goes on to win and earn the title and becomes World Champion.

There have been some epic chokes, but I don't think any would compare to this one. What do you think?

Edwards at Assen, without a doubt. Poor guy.

Well I was talking about championships, not race wins. But if you want to count races, don't forget how well the former world champ, at the time "defending world champ" did last year in the opening round of the season. Oh, and don’t come back with “it wasn’t his fault” after-all, Puig would have us think it was Hayden not Pedrosa who caused the crash. So maybe Rossi didn’t have enough sense to get out of the way…

Hi SDR, what's up? Uhm what do you mean, sorry I lost you here? Do you mean I'm gonna get drunk with pete and end up in the gutter? Are you calling us "drunks"?

I agree, he choked big time. When was the last time a Motogp/500 championship was decided in the last round? It would be interesting to see if anyone else blew it so badly
