Seems to be several post in this general area. What happened to this guy. Did getting spanked in GP ruin him or what. I mean when he left the AMA he was a top contender. "AMA being a step up from WSB by the way."
It's fun to make fun of Kletus and all, but we know he can ride a bike better than he did this year. Perhaps the chemistry just didn't happen at Erion, but I'm guessing his bike was a steaming turd. American Honda couldn't do much with that bike, either.
Not many people liked Kurtis and his Mladin-like act which was even harder to swallow considering the absence of similar success. I think Kurtis was very talented and since his GP experience, he certainly seems to have lost his competitive mojo in a big way. I was hoping he would get a factory ride in the AMA series aboard a Ducati or Suzuki with the further hope being that having an opportunity on competitive machinery would restore his confidence and ability to be a top contender once again.
