Over the years there has been plenty of great riders, Ben is one of them. If he wasn't the factory Yamaha squad would have wanted to sign somebody else not him! But when I say great, he is there like the rest of the Motogp riders, top of there field so they ride in this championship. Now you have the outstanding riders like Stoner, Lorenzo, Rossi, who win races and know how to put a championship together. Sorry Ben you might be able to win a race here or there, but you are not on the same par as the greats who can win a championship.

If Spies want a weekend with no issues, he should nick off to a well stocked cabin in the middle of nowhere that has a great climate. Where there's no mobile reception and can't be found by the womenfolk.

Race weekend on the MotoGP circuit isn't the place to be if you don't like having "issues", because if you're not having issues you're not riding hard enough :-)

Ben Spies is a brilliant rider who is having a sh*t season. You cant just write a rider off for having a bad run of results - I would have him in my team ahead of Dovi and Crutchlow ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!

Sorry to see Spies off form. MOTOGP is cut throat, may see him side lined 2013 with the no rookie rules. I see a lot of movements with current contracts expiring this year. Its all about team/personal sponsorships. Cash is king

@tpod "You cant just write a rider off for having a bad run of results - I would have him in my team ahead of Dovi and Crutchlow ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!"

Unless of course their name is Valentino at which point you can proclaim the the world how you've always know they were a fraud and just needed the evidence to show it: :D
