Cool First one down!

Ben Spies has secured his first Motogp podium on a stunning last lap pass on non other than Nicky Hayden. This makes it 4 fourth places finishes for Nicky. Great race today.



Awsome job Ben. This catapults him to seventh in the points, not bad for a rookie year.

I was watching him hanging with the pack throughout the race; thinking he was going to do a great job by coming in 5th or. Jumping to 3rd though...the kid thought I was nuts, yelling at the Tee Vee like that.

If he's this good his rookie year, I can only imagine how cool next year will be. I suspect 'The Doctor" is going to become "The Patient" when Spies starts operating on him.

Nick has some weird karma this season. Racing great and can't get on the box. Way to go for Ben, though. He rode incredible. The guy that was riding at an insane pace was Stoner. Last to 5th. 3 more laps and he'd be on the box.

First year and he'll already be remembered more than that other AMA-SB guy... what was his name?

Colin? Cause Nick's racin' his a$$ of right now. Pretty good for a guy with a clutch issue and no front "feel".

I was concentrating so hard on Nicky I figured it would just be a bonus seeing Spies finish behind him. What truly made the pass happen is Nicky losing the drive out of the last few corners leading up to that fateful pass. I was yelling to!

After Stoner caught up to De Puniet I knew it was just a matter of how many laps were left. Fortunately I knew he wouldn't have enough for 2nd place

Third I wasn't so sure of, Casey was reminiscent of a many a men riding possesed. And although he was riding great, and not to take anything away from him, I prayed he would end up being a little late to the party.

Although Nicky has not gotten on the box yet, and yes he's rode his ass off. He has done what several established riders could not
he is accomplishing the impossible with the unrideable Ducati. Supposedly unrideable

WTF is wrong with Stoner? He totally botches the start, ****s around at the back, then, for no apparent reason, starts turning insane lap times?

Maybe he needs a year off in the Outback. Swing some of those Abo noisemakers and kill a few crocs.

I had heard they figured out the front end problem?
