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...

All becomes clear

Stoner's comments a while back about no rule changes for a few years make sense. He clearly has no deire to ride bikes that are going to be limited to 15000 rpm and was hoping that they would hold off a few years. Our loss...

Cool man! Just read the bit about Cal as well now. MotoGp transfer market got blown wide open today! I'm struggling to see how Dorna could get away with removing the no rookie in factory team rule just for Marquez (which essentially, that is exactly what they would be doing). bluehaze60 beat me to the punch on the rumour of Coca Cola sponsoring Vale in a team of his own. Seeing as Red Bull, Monster Energy and Rockstar have big involvement in MotoGp would make sense Coca Cola wanting an ice cube or two of the action, even if MotoGp is a bit of a sinking ship at the moment. Yamaha are still looking for a title sponsor so if Vale could bring that to Yamaha, would they really say no? Especially if Jorge has jumped ship to Honda. However, would Honda really risk the situation of having both Marquez and Jorge/Rossi on a factory Honda in 2014? I'm struggling to see that one. Oh the many many possibilities!

championships????

who cares....watching your kids grow up outweighs any amount of trophies in the cabinet or championships under his belt......if he`d carried on he would basically not see his kids grow up till they were maybe 10 or so......good luck casey for putting your family first.

he'll be back

I did'nt really rate Stoner but like all champs he proved himself over time, if i had any money i'd bet he's gonna be back in less than 5 years. I think most of them are junkies for the chemicals your body produces when your on the limit.
