Ok Spies, you've said it now back it up.

If you've been looking forward to it than go out and get a good result. Yamaha has come up with some engine bits to fight the Honda so no excuses on that front.

I'd expect a podium finish from Ben this weekend. I think he'd be very disappointed with anything less.

If Pedrosa is on anything like last year's form, he's going to be hard to beat for the win.

This flat track rider must qualify and start the race ahead of Lorenzo if he want to win it. Lorenzo had a must win pressure which could spoil Spies race.

Remind me please who is the rider said he afraid when Stoner riding a Honda. The invisible Dovi also seem more often on the outside of his cloak lately.

First off all Spies never raced flat track, and people seem to forget Spies still has a pinched nerve in his neck that is causing his left arm to go numb, and if it is not better this weekend it will prevent him from being a contender for a win just like it did at Brno .

My hopes are high, but I dont expect a win. He is fast but not up to Stoner/Lorenzo speed. Just a tenth or two and he is with them. Needs a good qual and start. But maybe the updates can make the dif.

one win and one podium . on a works yamaha,thats bound to qualify as under performing.good job his manager is on the ball getting him a contract way earlier in the year, because if he left it to the end of this season,he probably would not have got signed at all.dont think he will ever be an alien, dovi is much better than him this year

Actually, the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series will be at Indianapolis this year but I guess you're right about the superbikes at Indy. Good catch!
