I want Biaggi and Haga to beat Spies ... does that make me some sort of traitor?

Even though Spies seems to have taken a course in PR since joining WSBK, he still rubs me the wrong way.

Whos with me?

I like everyone in the WSB paddock.

I want Haga to finally win a title.
I want Spies to show the world the US has top talent.
I want to see Biagi win another title
I want to see Xaus win instead of bin a title
I want to see Corser win a title on a third manufacturers bike

So much talent, so many deserving, and amazingly close racing. I weep for the AMA.

It's going to be difficult for Spies to win in Valencia is going to be some great racing, Biagi looks very strong and the track suits the Ducati.

Spies came 2nd, 5sec back of Haga.

There's a torrent availble on Mininova, there appears to be a brit who's recording them and hosting from EuroSport.

I liked the quote on speed report last night.

"Spies, who was expected to challenge for rookie of the year, is going after the championship instead."

he's good.

It sucks that he crash on the first race, the only thing that he could hope for is for Haga to have a bad race but the way it's going everytime Spies wins Haga is 2nd. I don't thing Haga is going to put it all out there like he used to before in years past. This time he would rather finish 2nd then crash trying to win.
