World Superbike Title Showdown
Monday, October 19, 2009
It's Ben Spies (19) against Noriyuki Haga (41) for the title in Portugal!
Ladies and gentleman, this is it! Two races in Portugal to decide the World Superbike title, with a mere 10 points separating leader Noriyuki Haga
and American Ben Spies
; whoever wins both races will come out the champion. It doesn't get any better than this! And I must admit, I’m pulling for Spies.
Despite my flair for Nitro Nori and his loads of sliding style, how do you root against the rookie superstar from your home country? Go Ben and the Red, White and Blue! Just as I was there in Valencia to see Nicky Hayden
come from behind to win his MotoGP world championship in 2006, hopefully I can witness the same by ‘the new kid’ from Texas.
Either way, MotoUSA
will be live from Portugal to bring you all the action!
