Yamaha MotoGP star Ben Spies looks like his career with Yamaha is over after the star underwent an operation to repair ligament damage on his shoulder following a crash at the Malaysia MotoGP.

With an estimated 10-12 weeks until the American is out of a sling, it’s unlikely we’ll see Spies back on a Yamaha MotoGP bike as he’s already signed to ride for Ducati in MotoGP next year.

Yamaha Racing will make a decision on a rider for the last round of MotoGP at Valencia MotoGP after this weekend’s race at Phillip Island.
