I doubt that it's "Spies fan" that are enjoying the fall of Jorge. There is no hatred, rivalry, or bitterness between Jorge and Ben and there shouldn't be any between their fans. Jorge is a proven MotoGP champion and Spies is finding his way.

I would think it's the people who hold a grudge against Jorge that are enjoying his misfortune.

For me the race of the day was 125cc. In MotoGP it was unfair for Lorenzo and Simo (really big bad luck and cold tyre) and without the 'big chase' made by them it would be boring race. Lorenzo almost 5th so hats off but the winner is Spies and his ride was incredible and it's good to see this old Ben back as i like to watch Americans on top. The colours are also much better:) In SBK they could think of it also. Feel for de Puniet, he needs a big change.

Noyes says Spies wants to ask Yamaha to keep these colors, since they don't have a title sponsor. I much prefer them too. Actually, I haven't met/read/heard of anyone who prefers the factory colors, althogh they were good too. But his red black and white looks just amazing. They should get Lucky Strike as a title sponsor the same way Ducati has Marlboro.

No matter what happens someone always says it was a boring race... maybe you don't ride enough to appreciate how hard these guys ride and how much on tne edge they are... or maybe you just have the attention span of a mouse and need to find a different sport... maybe something with pretty colors and a ball to focus on like a puppy playing fetch
...end rant here...

About rossi.. Well he would have been 7th had Simo n Jorge not been on the ground and if Cal did not have d front tyre problem.. But still an acceptable result.. I thout he would have been 10th or something, behind Abraham, Hayden,Edwards and Aoyama..
