Ben Spies tipped to bounce back in 2013

Ben Spies has been backed to bounce back from a nightmare 2012 MotoGP campaign when he jumps on Ducati’s unforgiving Desmosedici this year. The Texan suffered a wretched second season in Yamaha’s official factory squad last year when a combination of rotten luck and unforced errors saw him slump to a disastrous 10th in the final championship standings. The 2009 World Superbike...

How does that make Spies a contender???

--------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Jlo getting knocked off was a blessing for many that day, they all moved up a position. If you remember the race, Ben had a red hot Stoner behind and chasing him down. Ben matched Casey lap for lap. Casey upped the ante and Ben responded every single time. A fantastic ride. 

How many riders have been realistic 'contenders' aside from the 'aliens' in the past umpteen seasons? How many different  race winners have we had in the past umpteen seasons? Ben is worthy of a 'decent' seat at this level, imo.

Agreed he's no mug, but lets put it in to prespective, why is he still being rated as one to watch? he had his chance and didnt make it, Dovi was written off as not good enough with far better results than Ben so why the second chance? He needs a massive season which IMO he doesnt have in him. a solid top five or six rider most of the time. But at this level thats hardly poor is it.

I mean I hate Rossi....

But there is no way I would suggest that spies is a better rider than him, that said I think spies will be top ducati this year, dovi is the new melandri in waiting. Would love to be a fly on the wall during dovi's late season sessions with the shrink,

Dovi - All through my career people have never appreciated me, I am always the underdog.

Shrink - Do you think that is because you are a jerk who lacks any semblance of charisma?

Dovi - Charisma, Nobody in the paddock wears their hat like me.

My bad

My maths was a little off earlier Spies finished the first 9 races which is 225 not 175 points available from those races. Unlucky last year? what a load of crap
