It's a shame for spies when he crashout during the qualifying. He could have been in the poll and set the new lap record. Anyway i am just hoping for him to be in better condition so he could race and have a chance to be in the podium. His pace is really good and have he a chance for victory tomorrow.

Ben was on a really hot lap before he crashed in the same area that claimed Nicky and Stoner. I was hoping Nicky would continue but he was momentarily unconscious. Got to see Dani and Bradl up close. Dani is really a great personality despite what most think. If he gets the holeshot it's game over if Spies can't keep up because only he could match his pace. Lorenzo struggled all weekend. Bring on tomorrow!

He could have done a 1.38.6 or 1.38.7, pole and a new record, on the lap he was on.. Just unfortunate.. He has a good race pace as well.. I would have tipped him for win contention if he wasn't hurt.. Now I am just not sure.. Hope he doesn't have much discomfort in the race... Wish him the best...

Exuses my **s, he has has so many technical problems this year and yes some crashes. Also one need to look at the setup of the team. Its pretty wll know that to perform you also need the correct suroundings in the team. Because even if you think it is all Spies fault it is A TEAM EFFORT to get the result. And this year the Factory Yamaha team has not been good to spies. That clear to see... cont.

Just ask any racer about this. If the team stuctere is not good it is really hard to perfom. One of the greatest riders Max Biaggi is one of the best exmples on this. When he has the perfect team surroundings he is really fast and hard to beat. Even Rossi is that way, He might have the team he wants but that excat team is not able to provide him with the bike he want, therefor he is also under perfoming.
