Spies looking forward to Indy return
22 August 2011 – 2010’s edition of the Indianapolis MotoGP saw Ben Spies heroically claim a maiden career pole position before going on to finish second to Dani Pedrosa in Sunday’s race. With this in mind, the Yamaha rider is excited as the 2011 race approaches.
“I’m really hoping to be completely fit for this weekend,” says the 27-year-old. “I’ve still got some numbness in the arm but it is better than it was at Brno. We’ve been working hard to get it right and we will of course give it 100 percent as always.
“I’ve been looking forward to this race all year; it was pretty crazy last year as a rookie to take pole and a second in the race. We’re going to put on a good show for all the home fans and see what we can do.”
