I dont get it, why do these riders even give interviews?? When everytime they do, they get slated. Why not just say "no interviews" "no medie" no to everything.... Then the haters at least cant say they are stupid or they need to go back home!!! But then again why should all the haters win?!? They will just find something else to bi..h about, find another reason to get to them. Why not just appreciate that there are racers that actualy put there life on the line to give us fans something to cheer about.

Was fairly clear from very early in the season that Bens head wasn't completely in it. God knows what was happening behind the scenes. Im sure the Rossi returning rumors were flying around Yamaha, and Spies would have been among the first to hear that. Spies is smart enough to know that virtually nothing he could do would have stopped that from happening. Could understand that being a huge distraction and disappointment.

WOW, you are so close, you got only half the name right but the job description was spot on, plus where I am from LOL

Wasnt the best job but had to start somewhere, if you google 'Collins GP'you may find me
BTW It is only the actions of the management this year that has brought MotoGP down with Rossi used wrongly in the process

Enough with the Eurotrash comments. Pretty much lame and serves nothing positive. As I've said before, when become perfect then you can throw stones. Until then...

I think ben has lost his motivation. He seems increasingly convinced he has lost his passion for the sport and it is just his job to put some decent result. Sure things have turned against him, but is it right to give up just like that? It seems he has decided to channel his energy more on his cycling team aru his other businesses.. I would be furious if somehow casey influenced his thoughts.. Well, it may be good for his future leaving the sport and focus at home.. And i wish him well.. But that's not the quality what we appreciate of him.. When he came to wsb in 2009, he was full of fire.. Thats when he won us.. And thats when we started to expect high of him.. 2010 was also a success.. Bt recent string of results have worn him down.. Bt that should have been more of a reason to keep on pushing, if he was really passionate or motivated.. Do you really give up on something you love just because things arent going right..? I am his big fan.. But i dont like to turn a blind eye.. I hope

I knew a racer we called Podster, not sure if its you but does Bella Vue mean anything to you Podster?

But that was in the UK when I lived there and he did Speedway, is that you?
