WSBK rookie Ben Spies also know as Mr.Elbows due to his riding style where his elbows frequently touch the ground when making sharp turns, is giving the god fathers of the WSBK a run for the pole positions.

Mr.Elbowz dominated the two WSBK qualifying sessions at Losail Circuit in Qatar, he lapped the 5.380 km circuit in 1 minute 57.280 seconds, Jakub Smrz on the 1098R came second, a fraction of a second behind Spies, and ahead of Max Biaggi (Aprilia Racing) in third. The race is taking place tomorrow, and am very anxious  to see if  the big boys will let rookies set foot on the podium.
