Ben Spies: ‘I’ll never race again’

Ben Spies has admitted the serious shoulder injury that forced him into premature retirement last year will never recover sufficiently enough to allow the Texan race again. The triple American superbike champion first damaged his right shoulder at the end of 2012 when he crashed out of a rain-lashed Malaysian round while riding for Yamaha’s factory squad.

 Ben really was a great rider. I was gutted that he came to WSBK and took yet another title that i reckoned was my favorite rider Nori Haga's title at the beginning of that season. No one knew jus't how the first crosplane R1 would do, and i thought an Ama champ on a new brand and a new bike wouldn't be a big threat. How ironic that Nori got beat by a Yamaha. But fair play to Ben, didn't know any of the tracks. But was fast from first days in free practice at every race. Verry impressive, no one else rode close to that level on the R1 after Ben Spies.

I feel sorry for Ben. Talented rider and a nice bloke. It'd be good to see him in and around the paddock in the future if possible but if not, then all the very best.

As he already said this?

He retired last year I thought. Why does he have to say it again?
