Fair Trade

After admiring Ben Spies since early in his AMA Superbike days, Motorcyclist contributor Peter Starr had an opportunity to trade books with the MotoGP phenom during one of his International Motorcycle Show Press Day appearances. Spies' book is available from David Bull Publishing (www.bullpublishing.com) and Starr's book (with DVD) from www.motodvd.com. Turns out Spies' fellow MotoGP competitor Cal Crutchlow (signing autographs at Spies' right) was born in Coventry, England, the same town as Starr.
