Capirossi did the samething in 2008, when Spies replaced him at Donnington Park,and was supposed to replace him at Assen the next week, but Capirossi decided he was fit to race at Assen,and then crashed again,and could not race at Assen. Then Paul Denning,Capirossi's rally buddy,asked Spies To replace him, but since the forecast for Assen was rain for qualifying,but dry for the race, Spies said no. Spies did not like the Idea that he would not get any dry racetrack time,on a track he did not know until raceday, and since he had a two day test at Indy the next week, he said no . Paul Denning was upset at Spies for this , so in 2009, Suzuki did not sign Spies ,and Spies signed with Yamaha WSBK instead, after being a Suzuki Suported rider in the AMA since he turned 16 in July 2000 .
And the rest is WSBK Champion as a rookie history...on a Sweet Yam!!! Suzuki has got to be kickin' themselves in the @55 for that move. All the guy did was win 1 Formula

Previous post cont.

...Xtreme Superbike ring, and 3 AMA superbike rings. I suppose that's nothing with regards to giving a guy the benefit of doubt, beating Mladin like he stole something...Sheesh!!! Serves Suzuki right!!!

Has not won a race.....a single race at that, since Motegi in 2007. Heads up, this is the middle of 2011. He has not done squat in YEARS.

By the way, there is the MOTOGP/500CC record, which is NOT the 125cc class nor the 250cc class nor the moped class. We're talking MotoGP not moped classes.

So stop the junk talk about 18 of 22 yrs bs. He cannot produce a win much less a podium. My money is on Elias to beat him.

Poor old Loris cant do anything right sure he has courage beyond doubt but even he should realise where he is going,down man deeper and down but if i was well paid as a rider i dont think i would willingly want to give it up.Take him away and what have you got yet another back marker,sometimes its not always the riders but the dreadful machines they have to ride,bring back production racing bikes that would be fairer and racing proper people are fed up with bike free grids.
