it's dead in itself, and it's even more dead when it comes to developing and providing talents for international racing series. Spies made a great point in that the US needs a Dorna/FIM backed feeder class in order to prepare young racers for what awaits them on the world scene.

Swearion. You just made Migs head explode. You used the words Spies and great in the same sentence.
I dont know what this emoticon means, but Im mesmerized by it


There was a race this weekend but since it wasnt televised or streamed I prefer to call it practice, or if I may be generous... Club race
About 3 professionals showed up in the SBK class. The rest were privateers.

Gerloff is finally showing the speed we expected before he snapped his femur 2 yrs ago at Daytona. I guess it helps that Boobyier has moved on out of the class. It would be a shame if his talent was forever relegated to AMA purgatory.
For those paying attention Benny Solis dumped that POS honda and has immediatelly jumped from Redding place errrrr sorry typo, 13 th place average on qualifying to 2nd place the last 2 practices (errr sorry another typo) last 2 races.
He binned this weekend and ranted on FB that Fong is a dangerass cunt.
RRW reported that Benny uccioed ( damn another typo) i mean rear ended Fong. Since there is no cameras on site who the fuck even knows but fuck Fong and Willski anyway

Spies was great for a 'dead' series, and he showed his talents in WSBK....but in GPs he chocked or was not up to the level of most all GP riders...

and before you start with the Ben excuse that he had his first year in GPs on the satellite team....keep in mind that in 2006 Casey the rookie was on a satellite team as well....in his second year Casey won the title....Spies in his second year won 1 race, and year 3 for Ben was a joke....

My point is being great in a lower division series (especially a dead one) doesnt mean anything when moving up to GPs....

So by comparing all those great American hopes to Spies doesn't, in my view, help the case for any rider....

Nonsense, he wasnt up to the level of Stoner, Lorenzo,Rossi or Pedrosa, but was as good or better than anyone else in the world. Your anti US bias is shining through again

Povol, I am not anti-american riders.....I am definitely not a Spies fan.....why? Cause he got talked up on this forum as being the next Messiah, it was said by some on here that he'd destroy the rest of the GP field....He didnt, he was average at best....
If Ben hadnt been so talked up by the usual fanboys then my view of him might have been different....but his passport has nothing to do with it....
