Ben Spies is one bad MF!

Even if you don't like him, you gotta give him respect. That dude is Awesome! I just finished watching race 1 at Assen. I have no voice from screaming at my TV, lol That was one of the BEST races I have ever seen (and I have seen many since '92). Spies started on Pole, got passed halfway by Haga and Haslam. Then with 3 laps, he passes Haslam, but this pass had BALLS written all over it, he just went inside and stuck to him through a turn. Then at the last lap, on the last 2 corners, Spies comes up on Haga and gets him before the final straight! Sorry for the play-by-play, but I loved every minute of this race. If you're a race fan and have access to watch this race, I highly recommend watching it. Fucking remarkable performance from Spies:deathmeta

Haga will probably win this year, but it will be the last. Spies is pretty impressive considering he's on a new bike and is new to the tracks in the circuit.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
