ya I guarantee you every bike in the first 3 rows has the same done. Possible exceptions for the superstock bikes doing double duty, so Geoff May and Chris Peris.
But they picked Mat.
as far as world class riders produced from the AMA in the last 15 years? well 15 years takes us back to 1993, since then there's been Colin Edwards, Scott Russel, Troy Corser, Anthony Gobert, Mig DuHammel (podiumed in WSBK races as a wild card.) Doug Chandler, both Eric and Ben Bostrom. That's just off the top of my head without looking back thru any rider lists.
Now what world class riders has BSB produced in the last 15 years? Bayliss (for 1 year, I'd hardly say that it "produced" him, but whatever, for the sake of evening up the fight a bit I'll let it go.) Foggy, Kiyo and Kageyama maybe? Hodgeson? given that he's finishing in 10th place in the AMA, getting beat by Canadian privateers that come down on superstock bikes for the money... I'm gonna say no.
HAIL TO THE KING!!
