If ever a rider and a corner were synonymous

Anticipated farewell touch

On the other hand,the Italians have named an entire circuit after one of their fallen heroes. Maybe they should consider renaming Mugello's Casanova/Sevelli/Arabiata 1 and 2 curves the Rossi breaks. I hope Stoner retires with another win,podium or two starting this weekend. 2009 PI was his most memorable PI win. That was a classic. Following this announcement you can be sure he will stay retired.

Agree Mario

They should rename it  '2011'. Maybe they should rename Laguna turn 1,turn '28'. #27 and #1. Get it ? Sure you do.

Fair play from his native country.

For me even that long turn Casey passed Lorenzo at Laguna Seca can be easily named 27's curve.
