Would love to see someone (anyone really) from MotoAmerica up there.  Definitely adds another dimension of interest for me as an American race fan.  Heck, I love it whenever any wildcard from any country pulls off a once in a lifetime race.

Hayden and the old Fireblade could win this! Isn't that wonderful?
Davies, Rea and Sykes right there with him.
Canepa seems to be pulling his weight. The pipeline for Ducati riders from MotoA is lacking. If it was a Honda we could see PJ, that would be fun. In the recent past there were a few that didn't make a big splash (I was excited for Rog Hayden for instance). As we get rules that have bikes in regional/national series same as WSBK we can see more of these eh? Seems the trend. Who would you love to see?
