    That def helps. Dirt riders tend to be faster no matter where they ride and I think that's another reason why Marc rides the bike very loose. Most of the racers I know who are really fast all have experience on the dirt from motocross to hair scrambles etc.

    Marc is very comfortable letting the bike do what it needs to do instead of fighting the bike. Marc and Stoner have familiar riding styles. Stoner was a very good flat track and dirt rider.

    Those skill sets are a must with bikes pushing 250+hp. I'm sure its another reason why Marc seems to pull off the impossible when he looses the front end only to save it with an elbow or some other fancy trick he learned.

    I can never see him race enough. Pure magic!

    Jack Miller is another with serious Motocross and Off-road DNA, if he ever gets a decent factory ride he will be right up there.
    Casey Stoner has the same background.
    I'm happy watching Marquez riding practice laps.......all we could do at Silverstone!
