Yamaha to rally round luckless Ben Spies

Yamaha is confident Ben Spies can bounce back from recent disasters in Laguna Seca and Indianapolis with a strong performance in this weekend’s Czech Republic MotoGP clash in Brno.~The Texan was on course to score his first podium of a nightmare campaign in Indianapolis last weekend when his factory Yamaha YZR-M1 suffered a spectacular engine blow-up while he was lying...

To the Spies crew members double check his bike before sending him out in my 13 years of watching bike racing I have never seen a rider go through so much bad luck all I can't wait to hear is Ben dumps his crew I get the feeling that is around the corner.

Results what count

If he is what he claims to be then nothing less than a podium is required.

RALLY? REALLY!

You let the man crash and burn.. junk parts, junk tires..would have been easier to fire him and move on. I would like to see a last minute bike switch between him and Lorenzo.. not saying its Lorenzo's doing but I would just like to see the bikes switch without each rider knowing, let the put their settings in and see which one blows up, or which swing arm breaks( how does that happen) or which tire chunks, or seat unit cracks! Boo on Yamaha fActory. I think something is foul in this whole class of racing anymore. Bravo to Stoner to walk away, bravo to Spies to walk and Bravo to Haslam for not even considering CRTrash!

Well somebody wanted him out at Yamaha and it looks like that clowns wish is fulfilled I know Ben is not the type of guy who would want to spill the beans behind his exit but I think he should given the way how he has been disrespected by the factory I like Yamaha as a company but also I hope Spies returns to haunt them in the long future.

Now that's what I call bitterness

Wosi and Co,

I am intrigued on what makes you all so vitriolic and bitter towards people that you have never met; and are widely accepted as the best in the world at what they do.

It would be really useful to hear about, or preferably see some video of your more recent triumphs and achievements

Regards Toby

Aaaw c'mon Tobe..

Why so serious?

It's just a friendly little dig at some of our yankee cousins..surely you recall their brash statements about the fifth alien and the predator?

Also the way they put down Crutchlow and took the piss out of British talent?

I find it highly amusing Ben has let them down so badly with such a spineless display..his Mom kicking and screaming her way through the paddock blaming everyone but bitte nuzzling Ben.

Wait? I've just guessed. You're one of the sorry sceptics I'm talking about..nuff said Bud.

 

Some of my achievements and triumphs can be viewed at pornhub.com if you click how to fuck monkeys.

" ... given the way how he has been disrespected by the factory ..."

which is how, elbowz?  snatched from Suzuki after being their AMA rider (in one form or another) since 2002 (and occasional MotoGP rider), given a factory R1 ride in 2009, becoming World Champion in his first season in WSBK, promoted to argubly the best satellite bike in MotoGP in 2010 on the Tech 3 M1, and then two years as a factory Yamaha rider.  four full years of the best Yamaha bikes on the planet he could have had and you call that 'disrespect'??!!  you must have the memory span of a goldfish my friend!
