2011 MotoGP

Ben Spies (Yamaha Factory Racing M1 MotoGP) says: “My actual start wasn’t too bad, just a couple of people got into turn one too hot and I got bottled in. I think Dovi came across in front of me in turn four and I was just glad to stay on the bike.

“I never even saw him. After that happened we just had to pluck away and not get ahead of ourselves. We rode well but just needed to be up there in the first four turns. I rode as fast as I could; it was tough to pass out there as we couldn’t get it done on the straight so we had to figure out some different spots. I was happy to be able to do that and still run good pace at the end.”

These were the words of the American Ben Spies after he took yet another MotoGP podium finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday.

Spies finished third behind race-winner Casey Stoner (Repsol Honda) and the Australian’s teammate Dani Pedrosa.

This was Spies third podium in 2011 MotoGP, including his first-ever win in the series at Assen. This was also his second podium at Indy; last year during his rookie MotoGP season, the Texan Spies finished in second place.
