Don't worry Ben it's caught on video and it's frustrating... I hope you dialed that M1 in well cause come race day we expect you to do better than the first two races.

Dorna need to introduce the same system thay have in f1 where if riders/drivers are not on a fast lap and are just pissing about getting in the way of other riders fast laps then they get penalised.

3 times Spies had a fast lap wrecked by other riders who were sleeping.

Not only a blocked lap but almost a disaster when he came up quickly on one of the CRTs.

I think if he can fix his sector 4 time he'll be in pretty good shape for the race. He seemed to be losing a large chunk of time there?

Ben Spies is in big trouble no matter how you look at it.

Anything less than beating Crutchlow is a poor result-even though they have almost identical bikes the fact is there is much embarassment that follows being beaten by a satellite bike regularly when you're a factory rider.
