Always a Spies fan regardless, but having a little trouble getting excited about the Ducati deal. Again myself and well... everybody else are purely guessing at what (if any) deal he has made. So it may be all for naught. Best of luck for the rest of this season though Ben!

Another weakness Spies didn't figure it out were when he unable to detect a problem before cause him crashes. Finding the limit of each problem is similar to finding the limit of the factory bike. His decision ignoring the smallest problem feedback from the delicate machine will prevent him from finishing the race. A necessity for a factory rider handling the top performance prototype.

I guess, he changed his approach riding the bike when he got the factory bike. It was the biggest mistake he made in his MotoGP career.

There is something really bad going on in the Yamaha garage! If you didn't know better, you would think there was a conspiracy against Ben to make sure he never beats Jorge Lorenzo!!! For a factory bike to have so many problems, so many stupid mistakes happen to it is unbelievable! Why only Ben's bike? Why has nothing like it happened to Jorge's? Maybe this is why Ben wants away from Yamaha and isn't prepared to reveal his reasons until he has left! There's one thing certain, Ben Spies is a bloody good rider, and it appears everything and anything has been put in his way to prove otherwise!!

@herewego.
there is something realy bad going on in the Honda garage. if you didn't know better, you would think there was a conspiracy against stoner to make sure he never beats Dani pedrosa!!! For a factory bike to have so many problems, so many stupid mistakes happen to it is ubbelieveble. why only on Stoners bike? Why has nothing happened to Dani's? maybe this is why Stoner wants away from Honda and he's prepared to leave after this season. there's one thing certain, Stoner is a bloody good rider, and it appears everything and anything has been put in his way to prove otherwise!!!

He should finish third this week but that aint gonna happen.All the attention will be focused on Yorgis championship run.
Bens job this week is to sit quietly in the corner hand over his good engines to Yorgi and to try evrey thing possible to get in Danis way.

Raw Dawg please come back and try and explain the sanity of this move to what looks like a 4th string Ducati.

@papi, re: I think Spies shot himself in the foot by leaving Yamaha so suddenly.

what did you expect? he is leaving for the same reason Nicky left Honda in 07.. you can only take it so much when you are used as rolling test platform
