"This has to be the most eagerly anticipated final round of the 4 stroke era."

er, no it isn't. I would think that distinction belongs to Valencia 2006 when the title was on the line. Compared to than there isn't much up for grabs this round.

yeah yeah yeah we know already mug...Americans do not understand anything about moto racing, we only turn left, never have true talent, hail anyone remotely good as the new champ blah blah blah.

How about you be a bit excited for once in your dreary rain soked existing, and understand that Ben Spies alone will bring major sponsorship dollars, many more American viewers, and some much needed competition to the plate.

Its like the Rossifumi crew, or the Moaner might dread them, but without them & their enthusiasm it would be a bit...well, tea :-o

Go Elbowz!"

Good for you for referring to him with him his REAL name and not this stupid "The Ben" crappy nickname some on here have adopted!

Hope Spies does well. He certainly impressed me as an ultra-fast racer in WSB, a nice all round guy plus he did the best job in those slightly-embarrassing Yamaha promo videos.

As for next year? I think he will beat Edwards but the Yanks will make excuses when he doesn't beat Rossi, Stoner and Lorenzo every race. The rest of us know the reason but the Yanks will moan. I hope the guy does well and proves that fast WSB racers (that most on here dismiss with their superior race analysis) fail to do...

Good luck Elbowz!

"Why does Crash let someone selling fake Breitling Watches (for $49.00) advertise on their site?"

Simple. In the UK we have The Sun. On the internet we have

Similar principles!

Not the biggest Yam fan but by golly they're some mighty fine photos!( Sorry, cant remember who gave the link but if anyone hasn't seen em go to page 4 of the comments and the links are there.) Its like 2 wheel porn! Hope the guy goes well, i like his attitude and style. Definately a big addition to the sport.

yah, but technically bautista isnt in gp yet so did ben pick 11 as a courtesy to him or is there some rule that lets the 250 boys get first pick?
