Casey Stoner announces retirement

Repsol Honda rider Casey Stoner has announced that he will retire at the end of the 2012 season. The shock announcement was delivered to a packed press conference at Le Mans ahead of this weekend’s MotoGP round. The 26-year-old who was crowned World Champion in 2008 and 2011 currently leads the 2012 standings by one point from Jorge Lorenzo. Stoner cited numerous reasons...

Casey will be remembered as the best rider in the 800 era looking back on his career his best race was when he returned from his illness in 2009 at Estroil when he was riding the Ducati and finishing 2nd to Lorenzo that was the race where he proved the doubters wrong who thought he was finished as a racer.

No loss in some ways.

Brilliant rider make no mistake about that and that will be missed, but the moaning and dull personality won't be missed. Honda will no dought be signing Marquez ASAP but lets hope it dosnt end up being two Honda Spanish robots at Repsol.

MASSIVE blow to MotoGP

and bike racing fans worldwide. I can't fault Stoner for wanting to spend more time at home with his family BUT I can be selfish and wish this wasn't true. But good luck to the lil' chap. Silly season just went into full swing. Jorge will be offered HUGE sums of money to stay at Yamaha and don't be surprised if Repsol gives Honda the green light to offer him HUGE sums to come to Honda. An all Spanish team at Honda would be a dream for Repsol like an all Italian team was a dream for Ducati. Who knows? This may even put Val at play for another factory seat at Honda or Yamaha that seem all but impossible just yesterday. Silly season has just gotten VERY silly! But I won't expect anything to actual happen before Jorge signs and makes an announcement - he's going to be the big fish in this.

I take it your comment is a self serving ego boost to prove to yourself what a hero you are whilst everyone else just thinks you're a bitter and opinionated fool.

 

I respect Stoner for what he does on the bike and going on current form he is the class act the rest are having to follow. His post race interviews AREN'T full of whoops and hollers but when he says they have problems he's giving insights in to where the bike is being developed. I have far more respect for Stoners opinion than yours.

Anyone.....

That says Stoner retiring is good news.....is a waste of skin, and obviously has no clue about the sport of motorcycle racing. And really has no business on this forum. Go away.
