Poor Ben. They're tough numbers to swallow, even though a serious amount of it was just bad luck.

Interesting comparisons too between Cal and Dovi on qualifying vs races.

yeah i agree. Ben's had it tough. I guess that's what happens when ya team mate is a WC. Same happened to Nicky. Not saying that Ben is a bad rider, cos he isn't. Its just injury and illness that has a bad habit of turning up on a race weekend. Fingers crossed he can prove himself on the Pramac!

@rush87 - Idiot - read the whole report...

Anywa, intresting to see that Hayden and Cruchlow gave their team-mates hard times in qualifying, but the oposite in the races (Though the amount of times Crutchlow crashed out was just ridiculous...)

Ill pay that spies had a bad run of luck this year, but that's hardly the reason he didn't give Lorenzo a run for his money. I think he only dropped it once when in front of Lorenzo, realistically, every other dnf he was nowhere near him.
Lets face it, spies of 2012 was not spies of 2011. I don't think he was ever the same after that concussion he got at the tale end of 2011.

all of this will be a thing of the past under the NWO (new world order). taking a page from FIM/FIA endurance, only points from both riders will contribute to the championship. no more walls in the garage, no more data blocking, no more team orders, no more manufacturers propping up one rider at the expense of another. no more remotely detonated depth charges placed inside of subframe and swingarm hollows. and most importantly, no more animosity between mates. animosity between mates is the antithesis of "mates" (duh).

this also belays the existence of any single rider efforts (this means you suzuki). one can either make a title challenge as a team...? or one can lose together as a team...? win the superbowl and even the guy cleaning the locker room gets a ring. often overlooked is 150 are available. once again, S1 goes the high road and articulates the cure for what ails. time stamp: 12/4/12.
