MotoGP » Ben Spies: The moment I decided to leave Yamaha

Its very rare that we get pure honest reflection from Riders. We can debate to infinity about Ben's 2012 season, but I think its also fantastic the we got insight on a major factory team, how to ride an M1, 800 to 1000cc characteristic, riding styles of Stoner,Rossi and Jorge. Also how to ride a Super-bike vs a GP bike. How set up, and feel of traction is so vital, how ride contracts are put together, and an athletes self pride and reaction to a poor season. Awesome article, Thank you Ben Spies.

F1 » Austin to request 2013 date change?

American Football (NCAA or NFL)is the king sport in America. In particular the most football talent rich state of Texas. The University of Texas football program is a billion dollar organization, with its own TV network, and is probably grosses more money than any Premier League team , except Man United. Also F1 fans in America are more likely to be bigger football fans than F1. So if they are really putting the Austin GP up against the Texas vs OK State game, the US GP will see a 80% drop off in revenue. Move the event into Spring right after or before the MOTO GP weekend. F1 and Moto GP would see huge crossover revenues, and it would be a huge success for F1 and Moto GP. That is the best fit.

MotoGP » POLL: What will be a success for Rossi in 2013?

Rossi will be very successful. He can even challenge for the title. He's going back to a familiar bike. It's like getting with an ex girlfriend. He should now what she likes and doesn't like. Rossi was trying to go backdoor the first date with his Ducati, and that just got everything off track right away. Anyways the sport is far better when Rossi is winning.

MotoGP » Ben Spies forced to delay Ducati debut

@Petrolbounce, Very good points. I am a Spies fan, but dude his season has been so miserable, I've been fearing for his physical well being for a long time. You can professionally end a contract early. I have no doubt Yamaha would have released him early. Think of the money savings just on crashed bikes alone. Agreed, don't go out like Maverik, that was immature. Also lets try to forgive Maverik, we all make judgement errors at 17. Quitters never win, but he wasn't winning anyways. Ben's season was over the first lap in Qatar. Ben can do nothing right this year, and no it was not all his fault. Something was sinister at Yamaha. This all has just been awful.
