I know he's a bit brash, but I like the way he's riding this year.
He will not be playing second fiddle to Haga, its good there are no team-orders at this time, as at one point Haga was away with it.
Hope Spies wins the tile though.

As I said in a previous post, as long as he's up there scoring podiums, he's got as much chance as anyone else of winning it. I'd love to see him winning the title but I'm pulling for Haga. A Ducati 1-2 would be ideal.

Michelle seems to lack a little of that killer instinct needed to win in a tight battle. Spies in Monza and Rea at Misano both showed him the heart of a true racer. I don't think he's there yet but perhaps he can learn it before the years done - he has increased his race craft by leaps and bounds this year.

Not a big fan of Fabrizio's, but no question he has elevated his game this year! A guy in his position should be out of excuses as far as producing wins and championship results. He is now in his second year on the best team in the sport with the best developed bike (to say nothing of the displacement advantage) in the sport. He has been team mate (and, I presume privy to their setups) to two of the best riders in the history of the series. The deck is stacked in his favor and results should be expected. With Haga presumably in his twilight and Spies likely to move on to MotoGP that would leave him at the top of the heap and there are some hungry young guys coming up to push him off! :)

Fabrizio will make a good runner up..... to Spies. Yeah , he's had a few optys to dice with Spies, but he's not at that level. You really can't say he's ever got the better of him straight up, probably never will. 10 other guys on that grid could probalbly do as well or better on that ride than him. Winning when your opponent runs out of gas is a win, but I'm sure theres alot of talk about just how lucky for him it was in Ducatti's garage. Rea showed him what real determination is too.
