Casey Stoner memories: Vittoriano Guareschi

2012 marked the end of an era when double MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner hung up his leathers after finishing third in the Valencia race in November. The Australian– widely acclaimed as one of the fastest riders in history – quit at just 27 after becoming disillusioned at constant rule changes and fearful that his lifelong passion for motorcycling would be...

Fastest rider in history?

Not really. The history books will reflect that stoner won only 2 championships. You cannot claim to be the fastest or greatest anything with only 2 championships over a 7 year period. Especially when you've just been handed your arse by your own team mate. Hardly awe inspiring!

The truth is that stoner acquired all of his success while using the super stiff Bridgestone front tyre. When that went, so did he. All this guff about losing the passion for the sport he loves etc is utter shite. Seems to me he's had no love for the sport for sometime, and nothing but contempt for the organisers and his fellow competitors.

The simple fact is that casey is retiring because he can't win without the stiff front, and he'd rather be seen as a quitter, then to continue being beaten by his pint size team mate.

Mario, read it again..

The article refers to him as " one of the fastest riders in history" - no claims that he was the fastest, and certainly not by Stoner himself! You really do set yourself up to look like an uneducated oaf with the drivel you occasionally spout, all for the sake of cheap point scoring. C'mon mate, you can do better than that..

Sit on the fence

Guarseschi was one of the clowns that sat on the fence whilst del'Torchio and Philip Morris crucified Stoner in 2009. Suppo/Tardozzi/Gabarini and Stoner made a plan and showed you need a spine in order to walk. Guareschi was their sometimes #1 development rider for Rossi. Correcty so,he's out and Pirro is in.

Vito just hasn't figured it out yet. Bernd Gobmeier may put it to him more succinctly. A peregrine falcon like Stoner was a bird in the hand way more important than the Rossi/Hayden, two in the bush.

he cant read well...go back to school mate...btw what make you so rude and disheartened by that phrase? it is correct though, casey was one of the fastest rider in motogp history and to me he was one of the best motogp rider...

and yes, casey won his first title due to the tyre, but what made rossi a champion? he also got many advantages...perfect bike from honda, best handling and smooth engine from yamaha...all the champions have advantages somewhere at some point...

please dont make yourselves looks so stupid mate...

But to paint himself a fool

So!

The one of specials that were made overnight by Michelin for Rossi wasn't an unfair advantage then? And didn't Rossi grizzle about Casey, when he was getting beaten by him on the Bridgestones? Right up till (it appears)that Dorna stepped in to make sure he got them too.
