Spies fastest again.

During tests held at Monza over the week end Spies was once again the fastest rider in the WSBK field. Pretty damn impressive and he said he really liked the Monza track, as if anyone could dislike it.


1. Ben Spies Yamaha WSB 1min 45.3s
2. Noriyuki Haga Ducati Xerox 1min 45.5s
3. Michel Fabrizio Ducati Xerox 1min 45.6s
4. Max Neukirchner Suzuki Alstare 1min 45.8s
5. Tom Sykes Yamaha WSB 1min 45.8s
6. Karl Muggeridge Suzuki Celani 1min 46.0s
7. Yukio Kagayama Suzuki Alstare 1min 46.3s
8. Ruben Xaus BMW 1min 46.8s
9. Troy Corser BMW 1min 47.1s

“The test was good, it was really good to come back and reset myself after Valencia as I was feeling really frustrated. It was good to take a couple of days off, then come back fresh. We found a really good pace, and I loved Monza which is another new track for me.

“We also did half a race simulation, and got some really competitive times. I think we've got a good set-up for the bike for when we come back here. Hopefully we'll show up with a couple more tricks on the bike as well.”

Why must we wait sooooooooo long for the next race!!! Glad to see Ben back on track. I don't wish Haga any pain or anything but a couple DNF's would be fantastic!

Hopkins missed off season testing, and just recently entered the league...

It's not as if he's been choking as long as some of the guys of the field.
Stiggy is a decent team and he'll have time to improve I'm sure.

Hopkins will always be choking... it's due to a big C**K in his mouth

Considering how weell Haslam is doing on that bike Hopkins needs to step it up a nothc or two, but to be fair he has some excuses like never riding a SBK before and Valencia being his first time on the bike, more or less.

Good to see the witty repartee and partisan insults haven't diminished since I've been gone!
