dont get me wrong i like short, wish he would have gone to a different manufac than ktm(or ride the 450) i dont think that 350 has the nuts to run with the rest of the every race. hell alessi had what 2-3 decent finishes and that was it(could be wrong on that but hate him anyway)
and now you have pourcel(still waiting on a ride from what i heard), wiemer(didnt he move up?), canard and more to contend with in the 450 class. there for putting Short even more middle pack.
