ollowing the announcement on Thursday that Ben Spies will move to MotoGP in 2010, Yamaha now announces that it will enter the Texan as a wild card into the season-ending Grand Prix of Valencia.

25-year-old Spies will participate as a single rider entry of a Yamaha Factory Racing Team, using YZR-M1 test bikes brought over from Japan. The Valencia MotoGP race takes place 6-8th November, two weeks after the final World Superbike round at Portimao, Portugal.

The wild card entry will provide an opportunity for Spies to get in extra circuit time prior to his inclusion in the Tech 3 Yamaha Team for the two-day MotoGP test on the Tuesday and Wednesday after the Grand Prix.

Rumor has it that Michael Jordan will sponsor the one-off ride for Spies in Valencia. Jordan has been running his own team in AMA Superbike for some time now, but with two American riders on Monster Tech3 Yamaha, there’s some chatter over whether the basketball superstar will make a jump into the premiere class of racing.

After getting the motorcycle bug, Michael Jordan has become a large supporter of motorcycling’s effort in the United States. We can only imagine that effort would be furthered by his involvement in MotoGP next year.

http://www.motomatters.com/news/2009...confirmed.html

Ben Spies has been confirmed as a wildcard entry for the final round of MotoGP at Valencia. A press release has just been issued stating that Spies is to ride in Valencia for Yamaha. The news had broken earlier, with Motorcycle News' Matt Birt reporting that an entry has already been submitted to Dorna and IRTA for the Texan to ride in the last MotoGP round of the season, and Autosport's Toby Moody correctly predicting that the wildcard entry would be confirmed today by Yamaha.

It was originally expected that Spies would ride in Yamaha's corporate blue colors, in the same vein as HRC's wildcards have done in previous years. But the BBC's Matt Roberts has just posted on social networking site Twitter that former NBA legend and motorcycle racing nut Michael Jordan is to sponsor Spies' one-off ride. Jordan has his own brand of sportswear, and has run a team in the AMA Superbike series to promote the brand previously.

Should this turn out to be true, it raises the question of whether Jordan could pull out of the AMA series and put his sponsorship budget into MotoGP. Having two Americans on the Tech 3 team would be an enormous help for Jordan in the US domestic market (despite the sport's limited popularity in the USA), but Jordan is known to want to be part of the racing, and not just sponsor it. Whether Jordan would be willing to put enough money into the team to be able to play a far more active role has to be doubted, though, but if he did switch allegiance from the AMA series to MotoGP, that would be another huge loss for the ailing AMA Pro Superbike series, which has had huge problems since being taken over by the DMG, despite the vastly improved racing which has taken place.
