"Ben Spies is confident of a return to fighting for podiums with Ducati in 2013 after a MotoGP season to forget with Yamaha last year."

I'm sorry, as a fan of spies for a long time, i still think this is VERY wishful thinking. He hasn't even ridden the thing yet, so thats a pretty strong prediction to make. I hope I am proven wrong, god knows we need more at the front challenging anyway.

He has to believe it, all he has to do is beat Bradl, Bautista, Cal, Hayden, Dovi and any two of the top 4... Doesn't sound too hard right?

Actually, no. If Hayden has an off day, that is perfectly possible.





Anyway, he was speaking the big coming out party for the brand, what was he suppose to say? Steps up to the mic: 'Uhm, hey guys, hello, I'm Ducati's new rider, what an over-the-top bonkers spectacular event this is, thanks for letting me be part of it.' Q: Ok, so Ben, how do you think you will do next year on the bike we are all here having a big a$$ part about? A: Yeah, well this bike has been complete shat the last few years, so I expect to be a mid-packer.'

I agree entirely, and actually think Bed might be able to snatch a podium in the coming season. Also naturally as a competitor he will naturally believe it is possible, quite right too.

"I think the bike is better than what people have seen in the last two years."





Most people will read that and spontaneously





( With the possible exception of Mr. Hayden, who will no doubt be thinking: )








C'mon, Ben. Do you think anyone takes this all-too corporate pre-season hype seriously?


"Confident....blah...progress...blah...blah....tea mwork...blech!"

Ben Spies to win title this year on the Pramac missile. It will be 2006 all over again, he'll win 2 races and be consistent while the rest of the aliens crash out of all the races. Expect lots of Bautista and Bradley Smith "Missing the braking point" and punting all the aliens off course.
