Casey Stoner braced for MotoGP farewell

Aussie Casey Stoner has played down hopes he can end his Grand Prix career on a high with a victory in Sunday’s season finale at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia. The Repsol Honda rider arrives in Spain for his farewell appearance with confidence sky high after he stormed to a record-breaking sixth straight win in his home race at Phillip...

Aquarius..

Us Brit's have always wanted to live elsewhere, hence the need for an Empire, which if I'm not mistaken, you're benefiting from right now..

Europooves..?

Crikey..

I wish I was as tough and rugged as Boonie Bob, or Casey even..

..although I don't think you'd find him riding/driving hundreds of kms when he struggles to put more than a couple of laps together in testing..especially not for a pint of milk? 

Mind you..driving thousands to go Barramundi fishing, while on the sick, is a different matter altogether.

To be honest BB ...

... I don't know where Stoner's coming from either - I mean, it's not like Portugal is even on the calender next year is it? He's gone a bit soft in the head.

Wee correction BB

Abel Tasman the Dutchman bumped into N.Z in 1642 a little more than a century before Cook.

N.Z was discovered though by Polynesian sailors, possibly  (the mythical?) Kupe around a millennia ago, with actual Polynesian settlement occuring around 1300AD. So in human settlement history terms N.Z is an incredibly young land.

Simon Crafar came some time after this, and still we hope for a replacement. Yet our wait has been shorter than yours.

Here's another one ...

"It shouldn't be races in 18 countries but not four races in one country. I think that is overstepping the mark and, like I said, Portugal is just across the border. There are too many in too close quarters. I think it needs to branch out more like it used to be."

So he's okay with more than one race in one country - 'like it used to be' Wrong - a quick look at Doohan's debut season (1989) shows that no country had more than a single GP.

But he's not okay with races in countries that border one another, the sport should - 'branch out more like it used to be'  Wrong again - the same swift glance at Doohan's debut season (1989) shows that Austria, Belguim and Yugoslavia were on the calender (along with Sweden but that doesn't count). 

Talking of counting, can Stoner count? I mean there's 18 rounds now - compared to just 15 races in 1989, and yet he still says: " I think it needs to branch out more like it used to be."

Stoner's talking out of the back of his head - not for the first time either.

"Probably the biggest elephant I've ever seen in a room is Casey's 'title defence' this season....... "

2 title defences... Rossi in 2010 v Stoner in 2012... 1 non-race crash rules them both out for several races... 2 wins to 5 is it (so far)?... 233 points to 238 (so far)?... if you want bigger elephants you know where to look.

Stoner would never be found guilty of 'being a credit to the sport' - let him go.
