he probably clocked thousands of hrs riding the 800 round a yamaha test track prior to starting motogp. With the 1000cc he has the same zero hrs as everyone else in yamaha. end result more representative ability to other yam riders.
Or could just be going through a phase. he was wsbk champ after all.

Call dyanorod they're the only ones who can save his factory ride from going down the drain.
Face it people he's not as great as he's made out to be and in the wet I don't think I've seen a worse rider in moto gp history.
excuse - I was riding around blind mmmmm didn't rossi say this and then say he lifted his visor slightly and where did he finish oh yeah 2nd.Anyone who's ridden a bike in heavy rain will know that. pathetic excuses and when people start realising he's not all that then maybe the monkey will disappear from his back,don't get me wrong he's a good rider but an alien ....never in a million years I'd rather have hopper/hayden on my bike.

@steve sponge yes he was in the same sense biaggi was best bike by a million miles this has worked against him imo and stick him back there now i doubt he'd win that many races.

He had no problem with fogging, the water was entering in helmet.

@max still an excuse when others had the same problem and got on with it.face it he's rubbish in the wet he must have cried when he saw the forecast for the race.He's only good when everything suits him that's why he'll never be like the likes of stoner,rossi etc he can't ride round problems.Also when he came into the pits why just have his visor wiped why not change his helmet if it was so bad.
it was also raining all weekend surely this problem with his helmet would have shown up before the race like i said excuses but i'm sure his sycophants i mean fans will come up with more excuses.

Why do all the Spies fans go on about how he beat Mat Mladin? Mat Mladin is a nobody he is not eb=ven a world class rider Ben beat a national champ so what he is now with the big boys and is not keeping up with them.

The year he won the WSBK championship who was he up agaist, Haga who is now mid pack in BSB Ben would struggle in WSBK with all the top riders in the series.

All Ben has done is his career is be in the right place at the right time his lack of talent is now showing he will never be a threat to his team mate Lorenzo
