Ben Spies hunting more Dutch delight

Ben Spies is determined to fire some momentum into his 2012 MotoGP world championship campaign by challenging for a second successive victory in the legendary Dutch TT at Assen this weekend.

the question is when?  this statement could have been written before Jerez, Estoril, Le Mans, Catalunya .... i'll be astonished if he wins at Assen on Saturday.  that's not to say he can't, i just can't see it happening.  and there has been a different winner for the last four years ....

As much as Ide love to see spies woop stoner and lorenzo......... i don't think its goin to happen.

Ben seems a kind hearted guy ,  people take the piss because his mum goes to moto gp rounds, and supports him.

I always remember his comment , "i wouldn't be here , where i am today , if it wasn't for her working two jobs."

He Seems like a guy, despite his troubles , on and off tack , is greatfull for his lot in life

He Deserves some good look alately.

Spies didn't get

where he is today because of his passport, but if he keeps the works ride, that'll be the only reason why.

not bothered

i get the impression the way spies is riding and his attitude he aint that bothered where he is next season,i bet a worx ride in ama or wsb again would suit him,he has a win to his name in gp now,personally i think cal out of all is more deserving he has given yamaha a worl title and never had a factory ride offered in gp till now, yamaha should se this as security with him,plus he can ride the damn thing!!!
