I saw Ben racing Superstock at Road America and he was a machine back then.

Then the epic battles with Mat - on to WSBK and taking it all - and now seeing him win his 1st GP. Well done congrats Mr. Spies!!

Only one accomplishment left! Next year maybe :)

Why the hell does Crash give up snippets of an interview?
I know they want to have more stories. Sometimes they even have the same thread twice... Just rephrased the heading.
They should just do what they normally do with f1 and wrc and give us the FULL post race interview in another thread, not bits and pieces. Here, throw a dog a bone. Screw that... I'll wait for moto matters.

I just knew it was only a matter time before he starts to win for Yamaha. And what a great way to do on an absolutely stunning livery to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Go Ben!!

Congratulations Ben on a terrific win. Where are all the crash idiots who said a Superbike rider couldn't cut it in MotoGP? For that matter, where are all the crash idiots who said he was 'underperforming' when he had a run of bad luck?

As for Simoncelli, he already took Ben out in 2009 when he did his guest Superbike ride and his list of who to take out next gets shorter every race.

Dominant ride, and no better place or time to do it either, during Yamaha's big birthday party and with all the top brass watching. His contract extension suddenly looks like being a very smart move.

Does Ben get his Alien badge yet?
