@ inconvenience

"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."

Watch the video above. Is that down to Spies not riding the bike properly?

Excellent reference media that video is. You can even see it happening to JL around 0:34, but to a much, MUCH lesser degree. That is evidence of some major suspension issues if I've ever seen them. Damn! I watched that portion of the video 10 times, and wondered what the hell I'd do if I ever experienced something like that on the track.

P.S. Dani riding the wheels off the RC213 @ 0:54

Stars was aligned for an American rider to win the MotoGP title this year. But neither of them show some promising results. I guess, it will never happened. But who knows it might change on the following round.

Or may be the stars sign didn't show it is actually a Spainard wearing a Captain America gears winning the title. It is more likely...

Wow, Even ofter the video, Which is more like shake then chatter. And still Reading through all these pages of "Know It All's" There are only a smaller few that don't have there heads up their butts. Believe me again when I say that only the people that were in that pit that 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. 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. For the one's that think they know it all or (Better to know it all then none) Save your over the top know nothing nonsense till the end of the season.

We didn't see how much damage is on the bike in the first crash, a second crash was nothing special, bike just fell into the gravel in very low speed.
