Jerez MotoGP: ‘I rode like crap’ admits Ben Spies

Ben Spies admitted he was as much to blame as anything else in Jerez today after the American finished opening practice in seventh position. The Texan clocked a quickest time of 1.40.887 to finish nearly 1.4s behind the best pace set by Aussie Casey Stoner. And Spies accepted much of the responsibility was down to his own riding rather than the performance...

i love the fact he will admit its his fault, refreshing to hear a rider blame him self rather than just blame the bike, he is definately growing on me

Spies and Dovi

Spies will do fine and win races. You can't run in the top three on a satelite bike, then struggle on the top shelf version can you??? Hmm I suppose he is...
