Spies goes to Aprilia in 2010

I read on another forum that Aprilia made Ben an offer he couldnt refuse, just wandering if there is any truth to it?

He's been quoted as saying that Yamaha is where it's at and he really wants to be Rossi's teammate on the MotoGP squad. I think he has a good shot at that now and would bail on WSBK if that were to happen. Aprilia would have to make a REALLY good offer I think, which I don't see. Besides, didn't he sign a 2 year deal with Yamaha for WSBK? That would mean he's not out of his current contract until 2011.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

with him "saying" he wanted to stay with yamaha rather he's racing world sbk or moto-gp. also spies only signed a 1yr contract with yamaha wsbk. i honestly see him replacing one of the tech3 guys next year.

Honestly, I'd rather see him racing WSBK than MotoGP.

I think WSBK has more competition, I don't think spies would be challenged enough in GP, where there are only a hand full of competitive guys, opposed to WSBK where there are 15 to 20 guys that can win races.

I enjoyed watching him in Indy last year tho.

MotoGP competitive guys:

Stoner
Lorenzo
Rossi
Divizioso (spelling)


WSBK:
Spies
Haga
Fabrizio
Neukirchner (spelling)
Biaggi (once the get the bike refined)
Johnny Rea
Haslam
Checa (competitive, but inconsistent)


These are just off the top of my head. Nicky Hayden hasn't done much in MotoGP since 2007.

Hayden needs to go to WSBK as I think he would be better off and more competitive.

I think you can add Pedrosa to your competitive Moto GP list. As much as I hate that little dweeb as soon as he's fully recovered I think he'll be back in contention.
