Australia MotoGP: Birthday boy Casey Stoner overjoyed at title success

It’s hard to imagine life getting any better for Repsol Honda rider Casey Stoner.He clinched his second MotoGP world title in front of his home crowd at Phillip Island yesterday, his fifth win in a row in Australia also coming on his 26th birthday. He’s also going to be a father for the first time in February and he said: "For...

he dominated this year

and is a deserving champion. He's only the fifth rider to win a title for two different manufacturers.

2011 title

Hugely impressive by Stoner. By contrast,I would rank his 2007 through 2010 achievements even higher with Ducati. This season he had kit equal to what the best of the rest had. In his Ducati years,hindsight proves he was something special. Even in 2007 the mere fact that he won so much is credit to his raw tallent,game and grit. Capirex came oh so close to lifting the 2006 title back then and knew Ducati inside out. He ended 2007 way behind Stoner with one fortuitous,but well gambled win. The lean years ? 2008 through 2010 still saw him wrench podiums and wins aplenty. Its not that 2011 was easy for him by any manner of means. Looking for the right set up with a new bike at every circuit. Database ground zero from circuit to circuit . It must have been tough against the entrenched factory riders at Repsol and the brilliant Lorenzo at Yamaha. However I don't think it was as tough for him as it was carrying 'Alien rank' within Ducati ranks. I don't see things changing much next season. Spies and Simmo will lift their game and consistency. Dovi will be a thorn in all their sides here and there. Dani will be Dani and the remaining big guns will be Stoner and Lorenzo... The two surviving aliens of the 800 era to carry the alien tag into 1000cc and 2012.

He is up there with the greats now and Honda could dominate with him for some years to come now. As long as they get the 1000CC bike right of course.

i'll admitt

i don't like him, i dont like his race craft, i dont like his personality, i dont like his arrogance and i dont like the team he rides for. that said he has with out a doubt dominated this year, made pedrosa look like a rookie, brought rossi back to earth and forced lorenzo to ride out of his skin. he is a deserved champion and i dont see him loosing his crown for a few years to come. i think we may have just seen the start of the stoner years.

It just shows.

One thing in my eyes he has taken that number one spot away from the golden boy at Repsol Pedrosa he has being riding that bike for five years and won no title then there you have Stoner first season on that bike and a deserving champion but like I say next year Yamaha will be back and hopefully we see some racing because most of the races this season have been dull.

Summed up

I'd say rossichamp summed it up perfectly. A deserved champion, well done.

My 'hero' is Steady Eddie Lawson. No frills, no gimmicks, very few laughs but he got on with the job that he was employed to do. Boring to watch to some, masterful to others.

Vale, with his personality certainly raised the sports image and brought MotoGp into the minds of many more people, but when he's gone we'll revert to the norm again. There are a few countries that avidly follow bike racing but this is a minority sport and seemingly always will be. Shame............ imo.
