MotoGP » Third time lucky for Ben Spies at Motegi?


Ben needs perfect track conditions (all dry or wet--no in between)and a high degree of confidence in the front which he didn't have at Aragon as he started the race on a front tire he was unfamiliar with and played it safe. No need for risk taking being #10 on points. The forecast for Motegi is perfect weather. So maybe he can do something but I wouldn't bet a dime on it.

MotoGP » Spies no answer to satellite Yamaha duo


Yes, it does seem like everything is going swell until the lights go out. And then...something seems not quite right and Ben loses ground. It happens so often I have to agree with you that he has some king of mental block that kicks in. Maybe being on the Duck Jr. team will ease the pressure and result in races that he can at least say he got everything he could from the bike. But his strong fear of flying which he had to overcome in stages suggests he has a strong survival instinct that hinders him when he meets situation that are not subject to his control...like tricky race track conditions. He admitted that the crashes in QP dampened his drive for the front row. I don't think he is going to conquere this psychological reality.

MotoGP » Aragon MotoGP - Race Results


On the assumption that all the Honda and Yamaha bikes are pretty much equal in performance, the vast gap between Pedro and Jorge and all the rest is dooming the MotoGP races to snoozers. Dovi has been at it long enough to have shown his potential. Cal not yet. Spies has lost something along the way and is slipping back to Hayden territory. Next season he will not finish any higher than 8th I'll bet. Yes Rea has done remarkably well, but there is a world of difference in lapping in the 1:50 range and exploring the bike's potential. Next year the only question will be can Rossi reclaim his former position and will Marquez fulfill expectations. Otherwise...booring!
