Yes, I'd agree with what you say about riding styles, both have their own and both excellent riders. Rather than one style better than the other, I'd say that Stoner's 'grab it by the neck' approach means he would be quicker to get the better results on a bike that isn't so rounded whereas the smoother style would need more time to get the bike set to their liking.
Next year's title defence will be very interesting in the first few races with the new bikes, but I wonder, with the Yamaha and the Honda which are already proven designs, how much different the bikes will be from this years. I'd imagine very similar in terms of dimensions and chassis but with more power? The Ducati is the big unknown but if they do get it right I'd expect Rossi to be poking around at the front as well. A challenge for the title though, not sure as Stoner and Lorenzo will take some beating.
Buel - I didn't hear anything incorrectly as I didn't see the program. Someone on here made the comment that Eurosport team had given their opinion and made the Ago/Hailwood analogy on Rossi/Stoner styles. Their comment didn't say they were quoting Ago.
It is their job to commentate and inform and give opinion, no question, but often, it isn't opinion, they are telling us as a fact what a rider does, thinks, why one bike can overtake another etc. Not so much Moody but Ryder and Spalding particularly. They often stray into 'know-all' mode. If it was just given as an opinion there is no problem, but the 'I have said therefore it is fact' attitude gets on the wick a little. One of the best is how Hayden races better and has an advantage at left hand tracks because of his dirt tracking experience. You may as well say Stoner has an advantage on the bumpier tracks because of his motocross background....
I actually prefer the Eurosport commentary over BBC anyday. Moody has a genuine interest in motorsport and competes on 4 wheels himself. Pretty quick at hill climbing.
