@Rawdawg...

You know what? I'm not a fan of Spies (nothing against him though!), but after his experiences this weekend? He had a bad weekend. Just a shame it happened during the first race of the year. Those crashes he has his weekend were HUGE! I'm sure he'll bounce back.

What suprises me is that YOU, the champion of ANY American rider, no matter how good or bad they are is giving him such a hard time.

Cut him some slack girl! He had a bad weekend! Happens to many riders. Spies will return stronger!

Great racing from everyone except Rossi and Spies. Ben did have valid excuse for his performance BUT Valentino??? His fans told us he was sand bagging. They were right, he did a fantastic job of hiding his talent.

"re: "Dovizioso's doing well to get above Spies given the very much inferior electronics of the satellite bike."

just an aberration. dog fight goes to spies. Shamarone.
----------------------
Except they're not fighting dogs, Sham, (it's illegal). They're racing bikes instead and Ben's factory Yamaha is one the best bikes on the grid. An identical machine has just won the race. People have been criticising Rossi, but where did Spies finish on a vastly better bike? Anything less than fourth in front of the inferior satellite spec Tech 3 Yamahas was a bad day at the office for Ben.

It's past time Yamaha teaches Spie's team to tune his bike - they are fing horrible.
I'm guessing since Spies binned it twice before the race the bike he used was obviously having issues which is why his result was so bad. Actually I think in MotoGP Qatar is Spie's worst track -he always does poorly there probably cause his team sucks at setting up a GP bike and Qatar is slippery.

One of Spies's problems is that he's heavier than the other top riders which means when he's leaned over he is subject to more crashes. One way he can improve on this is by centering his mass more on the bike/tank and not lean too much off of it.

His team better figure it out soon or Yam gonna dump him and no factory will take him.

I'm so bored of MotoGP racing, it's like watching *****s go around in circles.

Even Moto2 had more excitement

Fin disappointing.

Ben had a bad weekend. That is all! Every rider will have one this year. Just unfortunate that his was at the first round. Ben will bounce back. he won't win the championship, but he will do better than this weekend

I told you guys once HRC fixes the stupid chatter problem Stoner is checking out.
Nobody gonna be able to catch him on many of the tracks. If he didn't start having issues this race would of been so easily won it would be sad.

The Yam is too slow and Pedrosa too inconsistent on most tracks so the Title goes to Stoner.
