Spies: I’m feeling good about Aragón
14 September 2011 – Last year’s inaugural Aragón MotoGP saw Ben Spies, then in his rookie season in the top class, finish in fifth place for the Tech 3 team. Prior to this weekend’s event, the works Yamaha rider is confident about another potentially strong afternoon.
“It’s great to come to a track on the calendar where I have the same level of experience as the rest of the field,” says the American.
“Last year was one of my most enjoyable races; it was great fun fighting with Dovi (Andrea Dovizioso) to keep fifth and we weren’t so far from the battle for third, until I made a small mistake.
“I’ve had a chance to relax at my home in Como after the Indianapolis and Misano back-to-back races, so I’m feeling good and looking forward to seeing what we can do.”
