Illness rules Ben Spies out of Mugello test

A virus that ruined yesterday's Italian MotoGP race for Ben Spies also ruled the Texan out of today’s test session at the Mugello circuit. Spies had a disastrous Mugello race after he was struck by a suspected bout of food poisoning during Saturday night. The 2009 World Superbike champion could only finish 11th after he complained of dizziness and sickness during the...

Vomitting? Would that be from all that "bad air" behind Rossi's bike, or one too many glasses of Jorge's man milk before the race?

Much as I like Dovi, he ain't getting that works ride. The nips want to sell Yams to those stinkin 'mericans and Benny boy is the poster boy. Also Yamaha know that Cal' s actually faster (if a little inconsistent) and Vale can't have the ride coz it's in Jorge's contract, so the Dovster's 4th choice at best.

Lorenzo ain't Mladin nor Haga

This is not the first time Ben has has suffered Gyppo Guts. Lorenzo is mentally the toughest nut on the scene. I don't doubt for a moment Ben was sick, but I would not want to be Lorenzo's  team mate.

Hell,even old tough gut Rossi bailed out against him. Break a leg !

One bloke that does not fear him is Dovi.

Should Ben get the boot, George will rather have Rossi above Dovi as a team mate without a doubt for an abundance of reasons. None relevant to Rossi as a title challenger for sure.

The worst factory rider ever

In an age when there is only four worthy factory seat available (, and want to be in with a chance of the title)

How can tenth in the championship and rewriting the book of excuses by acceptable?????

Benny beats the drum for Dovi, and ive stuck up for him for years ,and for a good reason. How many of you muppets that post on here have slaughtered Dovi over his level of performance ,YET champion this useless soft shite as the second coming.!!!!!!!

GROW A PAIR, and eat some humble pie, NOSTRO, GYTR etc. Spies was supposed to own Dovi ,Cal etc. Didnt you throw huge insults at me and deride the common sense opinion i offered ,based on past results and FACTS???

hahaha yes yes i was wrong you were right, i know nothing. the championship proves you right, losers

Get it in perspective

There's a difference between excuses and reasons

If he had food poisoning, it's hardly an excuse. No way you're going to be able to ride one of those things to the max if you're ill.

He's had a mixture of bad luck and poor performances this year. It has to turn soon, he can't surely have a full season like this. He's not as bad a rider as his results have shown so far.

Dovi had 4 years on a Honda and finished something like 5, 6, 5, 3. The third place last year was due to Pedrosa missing a quarter of the season though no fault of his own - and everyone knows that, regardless of how they dress it up. 4th was the place on merit, 3rd was because of circumstance. 4 years on a Honda, 3 on a Repsol and 1 race win. Yet he gets nowhere near the criticism Pedrosa gets. Usual double standards.

He's going well on the Yam this year, no doubt, but why couldn't he do this or better on a full factory Repsol - or does that say volumes about how much better to ride a Yamaha is over a Honda.

He wouldn't get near Lorenzo if he did get a factory ride

you better watch out mate. Last time I used the word POOF on here I had the PC brigade getting on my case!

I was gonna say getting on my back, but I thought that would just be in poor taste.

If you look into Dovi's record, he's the ONLY one thats broken into the alien group consistently during his time in Moto GP. Ok he's never quite pushed on to be a consistent winner, but on a factory Yamaha who knows?

Hayden a past world champion has only ever won three races yet has been a factory rider for ten years.

Spies was the great USA hope coming to conquer all, after his W|S|B record setting year. But he's his motoGP record really stack up?? One win when Supersic took out Lorenzo. Yes yes he did ride well that day but fortune fell his way abit too.

His time on a factory bike ,just doesnt cut it, and the only reason his will keep his seat is to sell bikes in America, and that my friend IMO makes moto GP a joke. Only four decent seats and they give one to the token.
