Spies expects tough debut season in MotoGP

“MotoGP is something I want to try, I'm at the right age to learn and keep evolving but it's going to be tough,” he concluded.

Spies will ride a fifth YZR-M1 run by Yamaha this weekend, before making his Tech 3 debut in testing on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Spies finished 14th (Donington Park), 8th (Laguna Seca) and 6th (Indianapolis, wet) in his three rides for Rizla Suzuki last season.

The triple AMA champion has a contract with Yamaha for 2010 and 2011, having originally intended to stay in WSBK for one more year.

Been watching a long time. Seen guys come and go. Has been a very, very long time since I have seen a guy just walk into an International series -absolutely flat cold- and just flip over the whole apple cart. Until Spies this year. What would an "alien" running in SBK look like? Listen to an old man.... Spies will matter. I'm thinking this lad has no interest in being an apprentice or a need. He has made his own rules so far. Why would that suddenly change? It won't.
