Although Neil Hodgson is here now... I could see him giving Mladin a run for his money... but I dunno about doing it on that Ducati. Great bike, but this is only their second year in AMA if im not mistaken, and im sure they are still working out the bugs. Duhamel as a good shot as well, but I think he will be more worried about taking the FX class title. I see Jake Zemke as Mladin's biggest threat, if not now, in the near future for sure.
