WSBK Poll: Results

Ben Spies may be tipping Noriyuki Haga for the 2009 World Superbike Championship, but we will soon find out if readers know better having voted the American as their favourite for the title.

Spies was the comfortable winner in the poll, securing 34 per cent of the votes, compared to Haga's 25 per cent, while Shane Byrne was a distant third.

Indeed, this year's title race may have been touted to be the closest yet, but beyond the top three, you aren't so confident in the remainder of the contenders…

3rd – Shane Byrne (Sterilgarda Ducati) 14%
4th – Max Biaggi (Aprilia) 8%
5th – Jonathan Rea (Ten Kate Honda) 6%
6th – Max Neukirchner (Altstare Suzuki) 4%
7th – Michel Fabrizio (Ducati Xerox) 2%
8th – Carlos Checa (Ten Kate Honda) 2%

To the poster above I would like to change 1 thing. Maybe this will show how good the AMA was not "is". Under it's current rules and ruling council the AMA is now a laughing stock. I am glad to see spies got out when he did. And I wish him all the best. It's nice to have an American to root for again in world motor sports.

That's a surprise. Shows a large US readership here I would say. If Spies can win some races, then it will be a seesaw battle for the title and it's up for grabs. But the Ducks are strong and I will have to give them the nod as much as I will root for Ben.
