Ben's Dutch of magic; MOTO GP.
The American grabbed victory at the Dutch TT in Assen after leaders Marco Simoncelli and Jorge Lorenzo spilled on the first lap.
It was Spies' first MotoGP win in 28 attempts and as this weekend is the 50th anniversary of Yamaha's entry to grand prix racing, it made the win all the more special.
Spies insisted the legendary status of the Assen circuit also made his victory sweeter.
He said: "It's so special. I grew up watching my heroes on this track.
"I don't know how it all came together, with this weekend being the 50th anniversary for Yamaha.
"I had a friend over from America and we had the special colours for Assen. Maybe it happened for a reason and it just so was great to win."
Series leader Casey Stoner extended his advantage with a solid secondplace while Andrea Dovizioso came in third and Valentino Rossi finished fourth ahead of Nicky Hayden.
Lorenzo launched an excellent recovery ride following his early fall to battle back up the field and finish a creditable sixth.
Stoner was disappointed to end his run of three straight wins but happy to pick up more points.
The Aussie said: "I saw Jorge and Marco go down and knew I had to finish the race, no matter what.
"After the last three weekends we didn't want to lose points."
Grin bonus.. delighted winner Spies
