Spies on the Podium at Seca?

We saw what Spies can do when track experience is equaled out at Silverstone. Rossi is out, Hayden seems to still be having issues with the Ducati, Lorenzo was 3rd last year and of course Pedrosa was 1st. Stoner won in 07 so you can't count him out....

Possibly Spies, Lorenzo and Pedrosa on the box?

I'll tell you what.....if Spies gets out front, that place will explode. I still get chills thinking about Hayden getting 1st at Seca in '05. Every time he came around a corner into view, the crowd went nuts.

Too bad Spies isn't on Rossi's bike......

There's really no reason Spies can't win at Seca. It's not a high speed
track so being that his bike is slightly down on power from the factory
bikes shouldn't come into play. He knows that track better than anyone in
the field, with maybe the exception of Hayden and Edwards.

I think its entirely possible that we'll see both Hayden and Spies on the podium this year. Spies has top 5 form now and aside from this last weekend in Catalunya and the crash in Mugello Hayden has been top 4. On a track these guys know well they should be contending for the podium for sure.

I prediict Lorenzo, Spies, Dovi.

This all changes if Pederosa can get the hole shot and gap them a little. If he does, he'll be gone, but otherwise, I think he'll fall back.

Hayden us my favorite rider, but I don't think that Ducati is going to have what it takes at Laguna.

Stoner will probably have an excuse for why he doesn't get on the box: something like a slow guy got in his way, or his thong was riding up his ass...

I'm with you. Looks like Rossi might be back, too.
