MotoGP » Team stability key for Ben Spies

“It's about getting into a comfort zone and that's why we had a lot of success in the AMA. I think it's going to be a lot better year this year” - Ben Spies.

Hard to put an overall percentage on it, but team stability and harmony are underestimated. If everything in the team gels it's one less thing the rider has to worry about, and can spend more time going faster. Spies has what it takes, and hopefully the results this year will show that. Good luck.

I think this is Ben trying to justify a disappointing factory debut season, as a strange team and surrounding didn't stop him winning the WSBK title in dominant fashion.
No need for lame excuses Ben, just get on with it...

Know what you're saying 'not convinced' but this is motogp not wsbk. much higher level. and remember rossi took most of his team with him, so a lot of the spies crew were also new to factory yam team last year.

“Ever since I left America I've been on a completely different team every year,” Spies told “And even though we rode the Yamaha GP bike from Tech 3 to the Factory, it was a different bike and different team.

Tech 3 is a different bike then the ones Lorenzo and Ben are on? But they have to use the same tyres? What happened to equal opportunity?

Doesn't seem fair!!

the best get the best the rest get whats left

Then why would Ben be on one of the best Teams as he's not an alien or the best?Ben only has 1 WSBK title to his name and Edwards has 2, seems Ben should be on a CRT bike.
