Kevin Cameron interviews Tom Houseworth about Ducati, Yamaha, and Ben Spies. Short and surprisingly insightful.

Laguna Seca takes full advantage of the current Kevin Schwantz/COTA debacle.

"So we wait, and the possibilities simmer."

I think that "grow slimmer" may be a more appropriate choice of words.

Stoner spoke to the need for a professional rider to adapt their style to the bike. Priority number one is beating your teammate. Expecting Yamaha to develop their bike for Spies' rather than Lorenzo without first showing that he could regularly beat him is a ridiculous request.

Obviously his shoulder is an issue, but I cannot get over the impression that it is actually Spies' heart that hasn't been in it for quite some time. It almost seems that his passion for the motorized version of 2 wheelers has gone. I think that both he and Houseworth may very well be unemployed soon.

The track is finally dry at Jerez and the boys are getting down to some fast times.

No Ben Spies on the timing sheet so far today.

Pedrosa already announced that he was done. But I wonder why no Ben?

I have a feeling his shoulder is worse than he has led on. Maybe even career ending.

Has he done any race simulations? He wouldn't want to start the season like Stoner did last year.

I think he did something close in Malaysia. He definitely didn't at Jerez. They only had a few usable hours yesterday. Today is not much better.

He did state that he is happy with the bike, though.

It is only testing and weird weather testing so not much to take from from the times. However I remember reading on somewhere (maybe on here) someones opinion that Ianonne might be the top Duc rider because he has zero MotoGP experience so nothing to compare it to, and could adapt to the Duc easier than others might.
I agree and can imagine a two-year "sentence" on the Duc that impresses someone and then a decent satellite ride for him.

Good to see Bradl up there in the mix. Man, does anyone feel bad for Edwards? I was certainly a force to be reckoned with in WSBK and he's had his moments in MotoGP. It's just kind of sad to me to see him trailing around at the back of the pack at the end of his career.
