Well Done Casey!

Done well to race Indy and grab 4th! Even with jabs, must have been uncomfortable.

Grrrrr

This news has dampened Nostro's enthusiasm a little for his Brno weekend away. Get well Casey, stick it to them Dani.

Shame....

Although i didn't want Stoner to win the championship this year, it is a shame that it is an injury that has really fucked his chances... I mean, for me Lorenzo had his number since race one and would have taken the championship anyway but this now leaves a two horse race for the title! The worst thing is that one of those horses is made of glass and isn't very consistent!! Hope i am wrong but this looks like another 2010 - JL running a mock in an uncontested title hunt... ho hum......

Shame..

for Nostro and fans all over the world he can't make it. It appears the brave effort at Indy was all in vain.

Casey was third in the standings well behind team mate Pedrosa and series leader when he injured himself and we have been robbed of what may have been a thrilling finish for the title.

It was always going to be an uphill battle to retain his crown with Yamaha closing the gap on his all conquering RCV from last year and Pedrosa being fully fit for the first time in 3 or 4 seasons, especially after unforced errors at the Sachsenring and Mugello cost him dear.

The chance to stamp his name in history by collecting a third championship and, perhaps more importantly to real race fans, retain the title that he holds seems now over.

Better luck next time..sorry, actually there won't be a next time as Casey Stoner is quitting because he's fed up.

Parris..

You just beat me to it beating Benny to it....

And yes Wosi, Stoners defense is all but over.  He will do well to finish in front of Dovi in the Standings by Valencia.  Cal has absolutely nothing to lose now, I hope he goes back to his 'All-In' approach this weekend and ruffles some feathers.  He's measuring performances against rookies now....
