Xaus crashed a bunch of times in 2004, but it was mostly all in the first half of the season, and only a couple times in races. I think he's one of the more spectacular riders to watch out there, kind of how Schwantz used to be. Very flamboyant and insanely daring (minues the results so far but he had a crap bike). I'm very happy that he was able to stay in GP. Seems a decent fellow in interviews as well.

I won't be shocked if Xaus outperforms Edwards quite a few times next year.


Heck maybe he'd even outperform Rossi...once...if ROssi has the flu...and a broken arm. Screw it...Rossi would still win.

H*ll, in MotoGP, he scared the crap out of EVERYBODY, riders and fans alike, when he bulled his way to the front on a restart in the wet--everybody was sh*tting bricks thinking he was going to throw it on the ground in front of the whole pack. :lol:

(Somebody will have to supply the venue--I'm having a senile moment :808908-wtf: :808993-banghead:)

The 8 lap sprint at Mugello, which started in rain and ended in dry, with riders still on full slicks!

See? I knew one of the boys--F4i, S1, etc.--would be all over it :laugh:. Forget the on-track stuff for a second, and give a nod to our own, you might say "local knowledge", off-track talent :applause: :wink: :lol: .

BTW--what took you so long, F4i? :laugh:

Ruben is fun to watch, he's all over the place and fearless. Back in WSB, I bet he scared the crap out of Bayless, Haga, and Edwards a few times!
