MotoGP » Spies no answer to satellite Yamaha duo


@Petrolbonce I'm not making up excuses for him he is riding badly this season and when he hasn't rode badly his bike has let him down.I'm just stating that there isn't as much difference between the Tech3 bikes and his factory bike as you like to think there is. As far as excuses he hasn't made any more then any other riders who fell or didn't make a good showing this season Cal has lots of them as well!! And no I don't think he is a talented as some of the other riders on a MotoGP bike but on a superbike he was unreal,probley should have went back to WSBK but I am interested to see how the Ducati deal plays out...almost as interested as seeing how close Rossi will be to JLo and Dani next year,I think Vale is in for a shock once he sees how much these two riders have improved.

@pcx Of course Cal wasn't riding Bens bike...He was riding a R1 with a years development behind it which should have made it better then the 09R1 which Ben won the title on.I'm not slagging Cal but when people start talking foolishness about how superior he is to Spies I gotta laugh...this year he is the better rider but what about last season when even Colin Edwards was beating him. Like I said no other riders are remotely close to the top 3 in MotoGp right now so 4th and 5th places are the best the rest of the field can hope for unless somebody is hurt like Stoner has been.

@petrolbonce In mid corner is exactly where spies said he was losing out to both tech 3 bikes so according to you the tech 3 chassis if it is different may be better or as I suspect Bens crew just can't set this bike up for his style of riding. Dovi may be a better MotoGP rider and as well he should be..Cal has done nothing that Spies hasn't done already and he couldn't get the job done in WSBK on a R1 that won the championship the year before..with Ben riding it. So yeah he is out riding him this season but he is still only going to finish as high in the final standings as Spies did last year and isn't going to get a win..Nether Cal,Dovi or Spies is even close to Jorge,Dani or Stoner so really none of there results are what I would call a break through season.

@petrolbonce Did you not watch the race, there was no difference in speed or accelleration between the bikes. And Cals bike seems to have gained the 13km he was down earlier in the season so they have made improvements to his Bike,I'd almost be willing to Bet Crutchlow is on the second best M1 on the grid and thats not a slag towards him it just makes sense for Yamaha as Dovi & Spies are Ducati Bound.

MotoGP » HAVE YOUR SAY: Name your Aragon star


Cal Crutchlow..He never gives up and if he got better starts I think he could win a race. Disapointed with Spies,Ethier he makes some training changes in the off season or i fear he will continue to go backwards in MotoGP.Dovi is Always good..One thing that bothers me is when Riders stick there legs out to block passing line..Seen Dovi do it today a few times..and no it wasn't for Balence.

MotoGP » Spies: We should be on the pace quickly


@Petrolbonce Did u read the statement by Spies at indy he was finally allowed to use springs/damping settings that he had been asking for all season? I don't think there was a conspiracy against him but he does not have yamaha behind him like jorge does,and he is not as fast consistantly on the M1 as jorge is so I see where Yamaha are coming from.I don't think there will be much improvement for the remainder of this season for spies or Dovi but isn't it strange why Crutchlow has stopped complaining over his bike being slow lol!
