Ben Spies leaves Yamaha

It's emerged this afternoon that factory Yamaha MotoGP star Ben Spies will part company with the Japanese firm's team at the end of the 2012 season. In a short statement on Twitter, the Texan, whose achievements include winning the 2009 WSB title, said: "I'm extremely happy to push for the rest of the season to my fans and myself[…] Next year...

I'l give you a tip for the things you post in future , make sure whatever it is you state at least has one ounce of credibility about it. Wild fan worship of no substance will just result in piss taken and being scorned.

Dovi was the outcast at Honda, the unwanted third factory Honda ,forced on the factory team because of his contract. He must of felt uncared for , a second class citizen just waiting for the axe. Now did he sulk and fade backwards? Did he shite he's got on with it and claimed third 2011

On to the tech3 team and has totally proved himself to be a far better rider the Spies by outclassing him all season on a satelite bike, I wager he will set the record for the highest points ever scored in a season on a satelite bike.

Now pucker up and say Dovi is better than Spies because it is factual and true.

Oooppsssss

Mikybar what the hell ar you going on about.  Yes he had a good year on the Tech 3 bike in his but you are mistaken big time.  Let me explain.

Spies on the tech 3 bike in 2010 had just 2 podiums and finished 6th with a total of 176 points. So far there has been 9 races this season.The results for the 1st 9 races in 2010 are as follows: 5th,RET,RET,7th,3rd,4th,6th,8th and 6th

Now compare that against Dovi on the tech 3 this year.  He has had 3 podiums (on the trot) and currently has 108 points after 9 races and his results so far this season are: 5th,5th,4th,7th,3rd,3rd and 3rd.

Now i know im not much good at maths but me thinks thats more points like for like for the same team for the same amount of races.            In 2011 Dovi finished 3rd overall in the championship on a factory Honda and Ben finished 5th overall on a factory yam

The bottom line is that he simply does not deserve to keep a factory yamaha ride when there are faster riders out there who will do a better job

 

PS - Bye Mr Forum Elbows

I think there's only one "dolt" here Milky, and its you my old fruit!

"3. He got the Factory seat in 2011 because of his Rookie of the Year overwelming performance and was the best available. Dolt."

Yes, and now he's getting the boot because of his underwhelming performances.

 

"4. The pretenders fighting for the Factory bike still ai'nt shit and will never outperform Spies. Dolt."

By pretenders I assume you mean Dovi and Crutchlow on the lesser Tech 3 bikes who are both running rings around spies on a regular basis which is why they are both well ahead of spies in the points table.

Got anymore ridiculous points? No really, please share.

I hope it's BMW superbike

I would love to see him back in WSBK. To me, it's so much more entertaining than GP. But if he comes back next year on a Suzuki GSVR, that would be fine too.
