When people put all they had and went for it. There are so many rules and BS things racers have to do. I loved watching Moto2 this year, those guys hauled ass and only worried after the race.
Thats fine and dandy, but it would be nice if reporters/commentators also mentioned the lower class championships of any other rider when discussing them

Doohan had to adapt to that riding style after he almost lost his leg in a pretty horrible crash. After he was all put back together again by Doctor Costa (who did a tremendous job saving Micks leg.) Mick didn't have the full range a movement in his leg, he still walks with a limp.

If you look at pics of him going through right hand corners he looks pretty normal.

Warning: Death may occur if taken seriously.

"The Australian becomes the 20th MotoGP Legend, joining current members Giacomo Agostini, Mick Doohan, Geoff Duke, Wayne Gardner, Mike Hailwood, Daijiro Kato, Eddie Lawson, Anton Mang, Angel Nieto, Wayne Rainey, Phil Read, Jim Redman, Kenny Roberts, Jarno Saarinen, Kevin Schwantz, Barry Sheene, Freddie Spencer, John Surtees and Carlo Ubbiali." To be even mentioned in that list is an honor im sure, nuf said!

Stoner retires from the sport at the age of 27, having amassed two MotoGP World Championships (2007 and 2011), 45 Grand Prix victories, 89 podium finishes and 43 pole positions.
