Rain set to spoil Casey Stoner’s MotoGP farewell

Casey Stoner fears his hopes of ending his career in winning fashion could be ruined by the weather in Valencia tomorrow, with his farewell MotoGP race likely to be dominated by rain. The Repsol Honda rider will retire after tomorrow’s race and he admitted if the race takes place in wet conditions he is less likely to bow out with a...

Stoner

Great rider, double champ, will miss his riding massively.

Im just saying he moans a lot which he does. Even when he has the perfect race he finds something to moan about, im sure he's a nice guy but he just has a habit of moaning.

He's a moaner, its just the way he is.

stoner's honesty

No doubt he has a public speaking problem and is uncomfortable in the media spotlight, which is one of the reasons he is leaving I believe.

He is apparently quite personable one on one with people he trusts, and has given thoughtful interviews in such circumstances. No way does he have valentino's wit,  charm and grace and it would have been fake for him to try to ape him.

You again are more or less saying he faked his illness in 2009, and such attitudes are a definite reason why he is leaving (he is saying it on the australian TV coverage as I type in a replayed interview). He has also disproved many other things said about him, perhaps with some help from valentino, particularly concerning his performances both good and not so good on the ducati.

So let him retire, 2 world championships are obviously not as good as 7 or any other number greater than 2, but still pretty good, particularly the way he rode to win those championships. He will perhaps be remembered as more like freddie spencer than valentino rossi, which his fans such as me can live with, and so I would imagine can he.

I do wish he had left some of his comments about the sport till after he actually left the sport, and also hope he does publicly thank those who have helped him at some stage.

doohanfan's honesty..

Thoughtful and measured. Clearly a Stoner fan but without the antagonistic bias displayed by most.

Well said mate..

Old wosi knows that Casey Stoner is the fastest rider out there. He's more than proved himself in my eyes, which admittedly have been opened wide and were wrong.

My Missus looked at me gone out when I shouted "Come on Casey.." out loud, as he closed in on Bautista for the final podium spot..

Really..I'm gonna miss him.

A fantastic and fitting end to an amazing career.

Respect.

'Wosi'.........................thumbs up bud. My last 'hero' was Lawson. A man similar to Casey in front of the camera. It's what you do when the flag drops that counts.
