Yamaha was probably in talks with Rossi to bring him back. There was no room left for Spies then, neither with the Factory nor with Tech 3. So they didn't need the American anymore. That's still not a good reason to treat him like ****. I wish Ben good luck but I'm not optimistic. We've seen already this kind of statement when a rider says the smoothest bike out there doesn't suit him well, that never ended well. The style of the Desmo fits Spies better probably but the bike itself must make tremendous progress to give their riders constant opportunities to make decent results against Honda and Yamaha.
