Haga or Spies - Who Will Be Champion?
Thursday, October 22, 2009
Salutations MotoUSA faithful, It’s Adam here. I can’t stop thinking about this weekend’s pending World Superbike showdown between Noriyuki Haga
and Ben Spies
. One thing’s for sure: it’s going to be an all-out scrap to the finish line. However, if I was a betting man, (which I am), I’d put my cash on Spies as the guy who will emerge victorious Sunday afternoon. Why am I so confident in Spies? He’s actually ridden this track before during pre-season testing last year. And when he did he was instantly right on race pace. But even more importantly I believe Spies is going to win is because his Ducati-mounted challenger, Haga-san is cursed to never ever win a world championship. Think about it: he’s been roadracing professionally since before I even knew motorcycles existed. And in all those years he’s never once secured a world title. He’s sure been close though, finishing runner-up twice and 3rd four times. Yet having completed full-time for nine World Superbike
seasons he’s never been able to seal the deal. Will Haga’s curse continue this weekend? Let your thoughts flow below and comment on who you think is going to be the Champ this weekend.
Is Nitro Nori cursed? Sound off below.
My money is literally on Spies this weekend. Team USA!
