Ben Spies – “Little more damage than I thought”
Ben Spies has finished his season on the Yamaha and it appears unlikely he will make the Valencia Ducati test either. After surgery to repair damage from his crash in the Malaysian GP, Spies tweeted ” a little more damage than I thought. 1 hr surgery to 3. and 10 days in a sling to 10 weeks!” With the Valencia test scheduled only 19 days away it’s unlikely Spies will be fit to make his anticipated debut at that time.
Spies is expected to make a full recovery.
