I see shades of Marco Melandri but I hope I am wrong - I love Dovi as a Racer and hope he can take what Nicky has done and capitalize on it

*Only when on the first production year of a bike that has a clear advantage over other bikes and has no close competition because lack of a superior bike and close competition prompts crashing, whining, and the inability to drink milk.
