Anyone know what happened to Ben Spies and Mat Mladin "technical problems" ??? Spies recovered fine (nice win!) but Mladin's bike bit the dust. The race announcer made it sound like the Suzuki mechanics screwed it up during the restart?
Well Spies made it sound like he had a fuel pump problem cutting out on him. Mladin had a clutch problem. I guess during the second restart both Spies and Mladin had to hurry and have there clutch replaced. Apperantly they have wet clutches and are a bit more sensitive and hard to install, especially when rushed. So I don't know what technicaly happened to the clutch. I think he can't be too mad his team has been very strong over time! Still bad break for him. Thank bike just seems so much faster than all the others even on the straights!
I hear you Rob. It's one thing to see a bike pull out of a corner or a rider just take a better line, but to see the GSXR's just flat out run by the competition on the straights is just mind blowing to me!
