Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner clash over Laguna ’08 again

Long running tension and animosity between Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner is showing no sign of letting up, despite the Australian’s retirement from MotoGP at the end of the season. The trigger for another clash has once again been the controversial and famous clash between the pair at Laguna Seca in 2008. In an interview with Dainese’s Legends magazine, Ducati flop Rossi...

Well said redracer46.

Wouldn’t it say a lot about the state of motogp and the people on here if they commented on stuff that wasn’t 4 years old. Shame on MCN journo’s too for continuing to fan the desperately old flames of all this ridiculous rubbish – a weekly publication at the end of 2012 is still recycling 2008. Desperate on many levels and for many reason.

In fairness...

It's not really MCN's interview... it was one Rossi did for Dainese, that was then picked up by In it he also bemoans the fact that MotoGP is now populated by actual sportsmen rather than the partygoers he was used to... oh for the good old days, eh?

"In the last few years, the sport has become too serious and so have the riders. In the past, it was more just about bravery but now everybody is more serious and very athletic. They diet and train a lot and don't have a normal life. I think it's important to be able to have fun too!”

ambition and talent

Rossi won titles in 125, 250, 500, 990 and 800s Stoner only 800 and l000, failed in 125 250 and 990 Lets drop the Stoner was a god bullshit, A were talented lad Yes but an adaptable genius with no peers ??? do me a favour..... As for rough riding ,throwing his weight around and acting like a bully over his status, Casey needs to look in the mirror before he throws any stones

Rossi is bang on.

That race between Rossi and Stoner was fantastic. Stoner’s bitchy comments after it are what put me off the guy. He should have just taken it on the chin and come back at him, I’d have respected him for that. Rossi got inside his head and Stoner couldn’t handle it, presumably why he had to take his little break and has been so bitchy over the years. Stoners the one running scared crying off at 27.

Cough cough..

Lazy berk Birt is late as usual.. already had over 350 comments on this story by the time he decided to roll out of bed at 11am and copy and paste.

Fatherhood seems to have dulled his nose for a good story and some proper journalism..bit like it took the fire out of Stoners's belly.

How can the Australian be happy in retirement knowing his team mate, who's won fk all, bitch slapped his arse?

Anyway..our Matthew says the race was pivotal, and it was.

Not for the result, which only denied Casey five points he should have bagged, but in that it halted a title charge and took the wind out of his sails by frying his brain, which resulted in him crashing out of the next two races while leading a stalking Rossi.

Casey Stoner, scared to engage, was trying to do a runner..he knew that despite having the faster bike, Rossi had his measure.

Laguna sowed the seed of doubt in his mind but it was Brno and San Marino that did the damage and showed us all what a lightweight choker he really was..

He showed us again this season..that the weakness of character Rossi exposed has always been there and is part and parcel of Casey Stoner.

Fast when he's happy..but flawed, unable to deal with pressure.
