I'm thinking Spies speed had lot to with the cold track temperature. He got some magic setup that allowed him to got tires up to optimum temperature. Superb performance anyway that he most likely cannot match in next race.

I'm thinking Laguna could be interesting for Ben, and I get the feeling that as the 11.1 gets set up info that Laguna could be doubly so.

I'm curious to see what the Honda's can do at Mugello, and to see what MotoGP does about Simoncelli's reign of terror.

Couldn't be bothered reading all the post as I've just had 12 beers and seen the funniest thing, Simonicelli! Really, the hair bear should have learn't by now. Anyway, well done Ben, and good ride by Lorenzo. Go Casey...if Simonicelli keeps his form up, you'll have no one to race :)

Congrats to Ben Spies on finally winning a race. It has been awaited since his debut in MotoGP and was thouroughly deserved.

I would just like to point out a small mistake in the article though: Vermeulen was the last WSB rider to win in MotoGP, winning in 2007. Bayliss was therefore not the last, as his last race in GP was the race he won in 2006.

Great ride by Spies, with all the hype on him he had to win one sooner rather than later, good sensible ride by Stoner, he is playing it smart, his lead is widening, his next 2 tracks are 2 of his favorites, should be interesting.

first pole, first win this season! awesome!

even without crashing, he's still ahead of jorge. he even started pulling awy from casey up to the closing laps of the race.
maybe just a one-off lucky break for ben and another luckless day for jorge but i think jorge's starting to be nervous about his jorge now
