Wow, Reading through all these pages of "Know It All's" There are only a small few that don't have there heads up their butts. Believe me when I say that only the people that were in that pit last weekend really know what is going on. Meaning "Please Stop Posting BS and theory's on what happened. If you weren't there, then you don't know. So much more go's on behind the scenes then anyone would ever believe. And for the posters that hate Tom & Woody, Do you think Ben would have made it this far with out them? Maybe yes maybe no. But what we do know is he did, and he did it with them. It's a team with many people that run up and down the chain of command., And sometimes others unfortunately (not helping) on the side.

Yes I agree with Vet. I also think that Ben is a great racer and is more than capable of top 3 every race. When Ben and Houseworth were close they won everything. Maybe those two should get close again and drowned out all this negative stuff, and people. Ben and House have been a proven team for the last 9 years, just seems like too many people in-between them now a days.

it's better to be a know-it-all than a know-nothing-at-all!

as Lin Jarvis himself implies, this is a make or break season for Ben, and he started the season off in the worst possible way. Ben is feeling the pressure now, and he has cracked twice. doesn't help that his riding style sucks! he needs to adapt to the tires and the bike or he'll be kicked out, and there is a long line of potential riders waiting for such an event. Ben has everything he needs, the ball's in his court now...

Lin better hire someone that knows how to set up Ben's bike well enough to fcking compete. NO rider can podium on a bike that's not setup correctly.

Rossi is the best example of wasted talent on the grid. You don't win a billion world titles if you can't ride well. You can't ride well if your bike isn't set up well.

Btw, many top riders have been bitching about chatter so I think this round of Bridgestone's are sht and they need fixing.

I just saw the video, and all I can say is that I completely understand what happened during the race now. Until now I was bitterly disappointed with what happened during the race but after watching it i'm amazed that a) ben stayed on the bike and b) that he didn't finish in dead last. Crazy.

Ben seems to forget that he's riding a Yamaha M1 and not a Yamaha R1. I feel sorry for Ben's side of the garage, having to set up the bike in a stupid way because their rider refuses to ride the bike properly. It's no wonder he crashed twice in practice and qualifying, damaging his bike in the process which destroyed his race.

Spies fanboys need to grow up.
