Silverstone Stoner’s standout ride, says Jerry Burgess

Casey Stoner’s brilliant victory at a wet and cold British Grand Prix at Silverstone back in June showed why he was crowned 2011 MotoGP world champion, according to fellow Aussie Jerry Burgess. Stoner mastered appalling conditions to dominate the Silverstone clash while his main rivals were making big mistakes trying to match his stunning speed. Jorge Lorenzo, Marco Simoncelli and Ben Spies...

That's no way to speak about Hayden, tut tut .


In relation to the article though, would agree that Silverstone was one of the stand out rides this season. Shocking conditions but Stoner never let up at all.

Interesting...

... that JB saw it as Stoner's Standout Ride yet so many on the Forum found it boring...

... yet Rossi wins by a similar margin & it becomes one of his most remarkable rides...

nice

ahhh Mr.80 seconds fix Jerry of Burgess, self proclaimed master of development&improvements. JB, Assen 2010 : I don't know what Casey was doing...he was just riding round following the other guys and didn't try to pass. That's not what racers do!!!" What had changed in the meantime, beats me.

A telling comment from JB about Stoner

and a cutting critique of his own rider " I think he had to get to the front to get clear track to be able to ride the Ducati in the way that it has to be ridden."

Well after all, Jerry is still an AUSSIE.

It would be UNAUSTRALIAN to broadcast his dislike for another Australian whose representing his own country as a sportsman & ambassador!

Hmmmm....... subtle tension or something brewing in the eyetalian camp? Firstly the lack of feedback from the riders comment, and now this - publicly complimenting Rossi's arch nemesis? Doesnt sound like the Burgess we knew 12 months back?

Dont worry, if something's wrong - im sure there's always an 80 seconds fix for it!

Jerez was his best ride in 2011...

That stands out as the ultimate Stoner pefromance to me. It a shame he didn't finish more races in the gravel but hey, such is the superb advantage of that Honda. They should be praised at developing it. Both Honda and Pedrosa.

Laguna Seca 2011.

For me I thought Lorenzo was gonna run away with it then you see Stoner making up time and closing the front two down and that daring pass on the finish straight quite scary watching it how did he do that.

Outstanding!

Having watched Mr. Stoner from Club corner, i concur it was a great performance. In fact he has had an outstanding year, Did anyone hear the commentary during the qualifying session on eurosport? They were stating that the computer data from last year indicated that Stoner's Ducati was in such a mess it was averaged that he should have crashed around 3 times per lap,however managed to save the bike from going over. The machine was actively trying to kill him. I would imagine that Rossi is very sorry he no longer has a competitive bike. Stoner will be able to develop next year's 1000's as honda will be prepared to chuck everything at the bike as opposed to Ducati who either won't or don't. IMHO.

Honda - Masters of the Game

I have read many of the comments on many of the articles this year and in an over view and summary one can only conclude that Honda are masters of the sport. 


They have had their setbacks over the decades but they always seem to be able to work their way back up to the top. This season at the outset there were 3 definite and 1 outside chance for them. This doesn't come about by good luck. 

I am willing to bet tomorrows coffee money that Honda watched Stoner from a distance knowing that Ducati was going to come unstuck.

My bet is pissed off riders come cheaper than those who are happy and full of themselves.
