In episode 150, Steve English and David Emmett debate who are the best five Grand Prix riders ever to swing a leg over a racing motorcycle. Steve and David are unanimous on their choice for number one, but from there, it's all disagreement. Out of that disagreement, however, comes an interesting discussion of exactly how we should think about talent, and how it should be evaluated. That throws up questions of comparing riders against their teammates, the development direction a rider wants to take the motorcycle in, and how difficult comparisons are when you can only judge riders against the people they raced against, a factor those riders have no control over.
