In the U.S., we’ve been used to seeing Ben Spies run at the front for several years now in AMA Superbike. Well, the rest of the world just got introduced to his racing skill when he took the win in race 2 at Phillip Island during the opening weekend of FIM World Superbike. Ben moved up to the new series this year, racing an R1 for Yamaha World Superbike.
We don’t cover a lot of racing on The Kneeslider but this win in his first weekend of competition deserves notice. Congratulations Ben! Looks like this might be a series to watch this year.
