there's a reason motogp riders make more than twice as much as world superbike riders.Nothing against the World Champ Rossi, but Rossi himself said, WSBK had better racing, and he was the one who wanted to challenge Bayliss in a World Superbike event. Rossi and Stoner are great racers, but you have much more talent on a WSBK grid (more people able to finish in top five). Like Liutas said, the poduim doesnt vary much GP to GP.
I can't say that it hurt him in his motogp apperances :dontknow:I think Spies will be at a serious disadvantage having never raced on any of the tracks. He's good but I doubt he can make up for that until he learns the tracks.
Where did he finish in his GP races last year? I honestly can't remember.I can't say that it hurt him in his motogp apperances :dontknow:
and he'll be on a bike relatively similar to his AMA bike (compared to the jump to the GP bike)

ok, I just checked, he finshed 14th, 8th and 6th. Not bad, but not championship contending, imho.
