I haven't seen this weekends WSB races yet, but in my mind Spies is going to go down in history as one of the best racers ever. I think he will take the title this year in his rookie season WSB, and next year he'll be in Motogp. If he gets the satellite yamaha ride I think he will regularly challenge Rossi, Lorenzo, and Stoner for wins. I first thought this about Ben in 2008 in all the AMA races, he was regulary beating mladin and now to go to WSB and be a consistent front runner... The guy is just awesome. He has an amazing ability to just get stronger and stronger as the race wears on while the other riders get slower... Many times his fastest laps come with only 1 or 2 laps left in the race. Rossi does this also, I think Spies could potentially be as good as Rossi. Anyone disagree? I would like to hear why.
