Mladin: Spies as good as Rossi

Superbike racing legend praises former adversary in TV interview

MULTIPLE AMA superbike champion Mat Mladin has said he believes former arch rival Ben Spies is as good a racer as reigning MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi.

In an interview with  'On the Throttle TV', Mladin says he thinks Spies is the probably the best racer on the world stage right now - if not the best.

High praise indeed from someone of Mladin's legendary status.

Will Spies prove stiff competition for Rossi in 2010?

We think so.
