sorry to say but I do not think ben has a hope in hell of beating jorge this year and I think it is unfair of his fans to put such pressure on him. First year in the factory team with mr consistant as a team mate is going to be hard. Tonight we saw the kind of thing that happens and proves as always that testing means nothing. Ben had jorge every session in pre-season right up to where it counts in QF and the race, Ben will podium and may win a race or 2 but to beat jorge is a tall order, hell even danni and stoner have there work cut out.. let's see how jerez turns out!!!

@Elbowz11: you should really look into getting a hobby instead of obsessing yourself with bringing down Lorenzo and foretelling epic races where Spies beats him down to a pulp.

I was rooting for lorenzo...! He rode the hell out of his bike. If lorenzo had a bit more power out of his m1 then he would definitely run away with it again this year! Great Race! I like Ben, but its gonna be really difficult beating the only man that has ever defeated the GOAT on equal bikes! Where are all the skeptics stating that lorenzo cant setup a bike with out Burges/Rossi doing it for them now...? If lorenzo can pull out another championship win this year than there shouldn't be any doubt we have the making of a new legend. Go Lorenzo GO..!

I'm with Darkwaknight on this - I see 2011 as another learning year for Spies. The title fight will be between Stoner, Pedrosa and lorenzo. I hope Spies gets hs first win in 2011 though.

A ride worthy of a Champion today by Lorenzo. He's had his doubters this preseason and he really showed his worth today. Brilliant.

And Spies. He did nothing to silence his critics today. He c0cked up his start which he then compounded by mucking up 2 fail pass attempts on Rossi. His race could have been much different had he made the 1st pass stick. He had excellent pace once through on Rossi and did bag some points so that's something to build on.

had pedrosa didn't have arm problem, he should've been third. granted, he really rode hard and i certainly can see him on the limit almost for the entire race.
spies still has a long way to go to catch this man.
i lol'ed when he struggled to overtake struggling rossi.
that say a lot about his mental capacity. he is not ready yet.

mental capacity?

Ok, I know you're just trolling American riders like you've been doing for the last couple of years but c'mon.

Mental capacity?

If that was the case he would have panicked when he got the bad start and tossed himself. "Mental capacity" comes into play when you do something stupid. If he would have gotten anxious and taken himself and Rossi out of the race than I would agree with you.

And even with the awful start, being held up by Rossi, and 2 failed pass attempts he only finished about 5 sec or so off Pedrosa in 3rd.
