I don't blame him for his Jerez crash, everyone's tires were gone long before he went down, but with his disappointing showing in Qatar and now the DNF in Jerez he's destroying my hopes at a fantasy league win as I keep putting him on or near the podium.



I was convinced that he'd be able to run with the four aliens but now I'm not so sure. Could he be just another also-ran?

There is a lot of strong competition but I really think he can do well. I wouldn't count him out yet.

I think it's still too early to tell. I happen to think he will be right there with them after a few races. For sure the one thing he still needs to work on, which was also a problem last year, is his pace in the beginning of races. He always starts out lukewarm and has to play catchup in the end.

I hope not.. he's saying the factory bike is a completely different beast to the Tech 3. Hope he can get to grips with it soon.

As he laptimes after the first few laps will testify, Spies has frontrunning pace. I think it's a matter of time before he bags a win. If he can get comfortable on cold Bridgestones, he'll be a real contender. If not, I foresee a trajectory like Dovizioso's.

i'm a big fan of spies. i've watched his career progression starting with the battles in ama against matt mladin. i must admit that i'm a little dissapointed. i believe he will come good though. the guy can ride a bike, and has great racecraft. i think expectations are set higher for him though. because of the things he's done over his career.

bah, Id say Spies is doing good, Im not knocking him for this weekend, last weekend (he was held up my Rossi) , he didnt do all that great. But he does display some top lap times. I wouldn't say he's dissapointing yet. He must win a race this year though to show some solid improvement oherwise he'll find himself riding a Suzuki in GP real quick.
