On AMA/DMG racing
“It used to be that Mat Mladin would lap up to seventh place and everyone was, ‘Oh, Mat’s a supreme god!’ Mat’s a great rider, but he’s no the greatest rider in the world. Then they changed the rules and he had a battle for the last race in which he was falling down, which he never did before because he always had a killer advantage, his bike always had such an advantage with parts that no one else had access to.”
Michael Jordan said the same thing about parts back then.
There was more than one reason Matt didn't leave. He could never secure the kind of advantage there that he had here. I would still would have liked to have seen him in WSBK.
