MotoGP » Ben Spies 'excited' to join Ducati family

Ducati now have 4 riders giving development feedback, each of them with an equal chance of sucess. If Spies can outperform the other Ducati riders, there's a real chance of him moving back to full factory status, and on a bike that could quite feasibly be developed to suit him. Which is why I'm guessing that the rivalry between those 4 guys is going to be pretty fierce.

MotoGP » MotoGP Rider of the Year vote: 4th

Well if we're awarding points for entertainment value then Cal sure deserves a few, as he was often the one to liven up the race behind the leaders. Whether it was scrapping with Dovi or Bautista or Rossi or Stoner, he was often the one who spent races going wheel to wheel with another rider, and it was good to watch. God loves a trier as they say - and race fans generally appreciate one too.

MotoGP » MotoGP Rider of the Year vote: 5th

In terms of outright achievement (ie podiums scored on a satellite , points scored for a satellite team) Dovi deserves higher. But this is a popularity contest too, and AD has never really excited much passionate support even in Italy. It's also a measure of how a rider performed against expectation, and as a top 3/4 runner in the WC, Dovi was expected to do pretty much what he has done. Hence a degree of apathy perhaps. His standing here is only consistent with the low number of comments posted about him throughout the year.
