Casey Stoner bows out with podium in Valencia

Casey Stoner walked away from MotoGP with one last podium after a stunning charge in yesterday’s Valencia race in Spain. The Repsol Honda rider bowed out of Grand Prix racing with a third place in a race that was declared wet but which took place on a dry line throughout. The double MotoGP world champion had the worst conditions imaginable for his...

After Stoner's accident..

..it's foolish to try and compare them, only a halfwit would try. Incidentally, CCB, don't try and label me with any Rossi slurs regarding his injury - I would be more than happy to accept the similarities between what happened in 2010 and Stoners Indy accident..

This is no time for tomfoolery CHR

we have to put this injustice right. stoner falling off his bike was clearly not due to a lack of skill and judgement on his behalf and we have to right this wrong. The world must know CHR! Things might have been different if err...things had been different!

There is no spin at all Super halfwit... Pedrosa finished second scoring 332 points - enough to win a title most seasons. He beat Stoner fair and square - there are plenty of what if's, just like in 2010.

Dani rode almost flawlessly from Indy through to Philip Island and Misano was just bad luck and his ride yesterday was nothing short of awesome - thoroughly deserved. He finished well out in front of Stoner and good on him. I hope he can go one better next year.  

There is no doubt in my mind that being in third, 9 points behind Pedrosa and a whopping 32 behind Lorenzo after Laguna on the back of a poor Mugello and his bin it or win it melt down in Germany also played a part in Stoner pushing too hard at Indy when he probably could of been more measured given he was clearly the quickest at that point in qualifying; however as you say ccb that wasn't his style - it's why I, and many others I would think, enjoyed watching him. 

The fact is though that prior to Indy, the count was 6 to 4 in Stoner's favour in a head to head with DP and after Indy 6 to 5 and by seasons end 7 to 8 in DP's favour. Not really having your arse handed to you... Stoner by his own admission is disappointed about his season and blames no one but himself for how it finished but he can look back over his career and be proud of what he achieved and how he achieved it and even a nob head like yourself and a few others on here should have the balls to admit at least that, instead of being sad little numpties.

 Now that Stoner is gone, what/who are going to bitch and moan about??? Probably everything and everyone...

im not CHR

Rossi podiumed seven times in 2010 including a win, after breaking his leg, injured shoulder and get finished third overall after missing four races. Yet is scorned as been finished at the begining of the season.

Yet Casey has done similar this year  yet is not being faulted at all, so how does that work then???

its all academic sppaaazzzz. Woulda shoulda coulda. There are all sorts of permutations up to varying points in the season. But a championship isn't won by what happened in the first 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or however many races. Its the guy that does best over the WHOLE season. Over the WHOLE season, Dani did a lot better than casey. That is all.

He told MCN: “It was probably one of the more difficult races in my career. I wasn't riding as myself, I wasn't loose and free like I would normally be and I was nervous. Every time I've been on the track since I've had this injury I am nervous.......... what about australia then????

precisely 7 to 8 in head to heads in 2012 in DP's favour and Dani finished in front of Stoner at the end of the season 332 points to 254 with Stoner missing 3 races due to injury. In 2011 it was 9 to 5 in CS's favour with Dani missing 3 races due to injury. Points scored 350 for Stoner and 219 for Dani. Who's better than who? well that is for sad little trolls like yourself to decide and pimping yourself as the authority on the matter and then sitting back and taking cheap pot shots at everyone and everything that may see it differently... They are both great riders, both achieved alot and is some cases maybe not enough. But they have done alot more on a track than all of us on here.
