Ben Spies is a terrific motorcycle racer, his record of AMA and World Champiponship Superbike wins attests to that. In 2009, on tracks he'd never seen, let alone raced on before, he won 14 races, on a motorcycle he had never raced before the season started, and on tyres he'd never used before. In 2010, Crutchlow & Toseland were an ambarrassment. Could not manage their tyres to last a race (well, maybe three times they did). Now Spies is showing the same maturity & intelligence that won him those SWC races, and he will win more races in MotoGP. Great to see. Now, someone tell Crutchlow how to set up a motorcycle, for goodness sake! Same tyres, similar bike, and look what he does! Stupid.
