2012 MOTOGP MOMENTS – CASEY STONER RETIRES

When Casey Stoner won the Jerez and Estoril races to ignite the defence of his MotoGP crown, talk of his retirement was already filling plenty of column inches. The Aussie was at pains to deny the speculation was true, so when the media filed into the pre-event press conference ahead of the Le Mans race in France, only those in...

What's happening at MCN ?  This is yet another Matthew Birt article which is just a repeat of old news. There is not one aspect of this article that has not been thrashed to death before now.  From his privileged position as a MotoGP insider you'd think he could come up with something fresh and worth reading.

Stoner was constantly taking the Ducati beyond the limits of the "feel" that Rossi said the bike didn't have. That was how the bike had to be ridden in order to take the Bridgestone tyres up to temperature and when Bridgestone gave the same tyres to Rossi it got even harder and that's when the crashing started. Nothing to do with Rossi getting into his head, that's a fantasy only believed by fanboys who believe that Rossi is the only difference no matter what bike he was riding.

I firmly believe that if Bridgestone had gotten right behind Stoner rather than jumping on the Rossi cashcow bandwagon they, Ducati and Stoner would have ruled Motogp until the time that Michelin caught up, which they would have done eventually. What records Stoner could have set in this period will be forever unknown.

Every rider wins titles because they have an advantage of some kind, Stoner was no different, but he had the talent to take a poorly handling bike to a world title on Bridgestone tyres where Rossi could only chug around mid pack on the same. Speaks for itself really.

only 1 thing to say really

rossi and stoner had some epic battles with rossi on the yam and stoner on the duke........with stoner on the honda and rossi on the duke......rossi was in danger of being lapped half the time......speaks for itself......a talent way beyond rossi`s has left and that`s a shame for people for who see what it takes to do what stoner does on 2 wheels

I am not a Stoner fan, but he is the reason that i will not have to take friday afternoons of from work anymore. Why? Watching that Aussie setting up his bike, by wringing it's neck in 3 laps? Man, that was great! So thank you nr27! I will now leave Moto Gp free practice for what it is and save some of my vacation hours for those Damn Brittish bank holidays to watch Shakey ride the Zx10 R. Casey is a leggend, i might consider watching Aussie V8 racing if he tries that. Wasnt Bayliss gonna try that? And why did he not get round to that? Lots of Aussies around on this site, whats up with Troy?
