Do you guys think it's time for us to start seeing better results from Spies?
What the hell for?Personally I think Ben should have stayed in WSBK. He seems timid and scared every weekend in GP. He just kinda hangs out where he started and thats it, hes not aggressive like he was in SBK and doesnt really push it, atleast last season he Podiumed and he was a Satellite rider last year. I like Spies but hes riding like a P****.
Honestly, regardless of what it looks like, 4 rounds in is way too early to ever call a season over. Lorenzo is still leading after all.Once Ben gets confidence in that, we will be faster than he is today. He won't, however, beat the Hondas this year. They have put together a seriously nasty package. Stoner is going to end up 50 points clear of everyone by the end of the year. I heard Yamaha has a new 800cc engine ready for Brno, but it will be too late by then. Ducati is obviously going to work on the chassis and wait for the 1000cc era to challenge for the title. I hate to say it, but this season is over.
I also see this as a valid point. And after getting an in depth tour behind the scenes, its a bit rediculous and makes you wonder how riders would do on even playing fields without all the electronics.I think Ben has yet to come to terms with the electronics of the factory Yamaha. During FP2, they were showing some shots from the left clipon of somebody (either stoner or jl), and they were ripping it open while holding serious lean angles. From all the riding I have done, that is a sure way to end up on the deck. But, that is the way you have to ride these things. You have to trust that the electronics are going to work.
