Spies Looking To Go Global Now?

http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...&article=29671 This article says he has signed up with his old manager and looking for him to take him to the "highest level" MotoGP?


When I originally listened to this 'cast, it sounded like he had little, to no interest in going to GP. I listened to part of it again, and well, it does seem his interested, sorta, kinda.

Great interview and worth a listen.

Definitely worthy! If you listen to the interview, it almost sounds like he does want to pull a Mladin. Too much influence from sharing a trailer/team all these years?

I really think he is mor suited for WSBK with the new 800cc bikes. Never seen Spies in person so i don't know how big he is. Is he the size of Nicky or colin?

Bigger than Nicky, not quite as tall as Colin I think, but close.

Takes more than talent. You have to have a good team, equipment etc in MotoGP. It's a huge moving target.
