Exclusive: Casey Stoner to test factory Honda in Japan

Double world champion Casey Stoner will make a dramatic return to MotoGP action next month when he tests a factory Honda RC213V at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan, MCN can reveal. The outspoken but blindingly fast Australian, who retired from MotoGP immediately after the final race of 2012 in Valencia last November, will take part in a two-day test...

You appear to know much about a 'racer's' physical well-being, and yet appear to know worryingly little little about a 'racer's' mental make-up. Most men and all racers have the ability to compartmentalize, and 'shut-out' physical pain and discomfort. Call it a 'Man's Thing' - a 'British Thing', but you shut-up and get on with it. You don't cry and complain. But Stoner succumbed like Spies. He couldn't compartmentalize the pain and 'tough it out'. He went AWOL. That, along with the fact that he's a miserable, moaning little man, is the main reason why he'll never gain the complete respect of many people here, or anywhere else in the UK motorcycling community. Like Spies, he wouldn't have relied upon the word of Costa - he's been known to have sent people like Stoner out with badly broken ankles before now (Indy 2012). Stoner, like Spies, would have sought more than just the odd medical expert opinion - the kind that doesn't come from any old Aussie GP 'quack' who's probably been 'struck-off' after being caught with his hands in the morphine cabinet anyway. Like Spies in America, Stoner sought the best medical advice that Australia could offer - which was to lay off the milk and go fishing. Great. 


Stoner was clearly a very gifted rider, but he was also a very weak racer (in 'man/racing/testosterone' terms).

You know when Casey supposedly barfed...

...in his helmet? Did anyone actually see it? Was it just a little bit of baby spit, or was it more like this?

The preceding clip contained bad language, so stupid tits like foggo who get offended by that kind of thing should go and pray for us, or something.

Having just seen the tiny, serial, shoulder-injury sufferer, Dani Pedrosa, ride to an astonishingly painful fifth place around demanding Laguna Seca - complete with a clean break in his collar-bone, I marvel at his enormous mental strength, courage and manliness. Dani was obviously feeling a little 'off-colour' too, but it still didn't stop him. He did his very best and he didn't complain. He was 'a man' about it, and didn't even use it as an excuse. That's the difference - that's what earns respect.

Thats

what I mean though, you can control the pain of a broken collar bone or ankle, but to feel tom dick saps your strength, but there are drugs to stop nausea, Metoclopramide being one and they can take them I think. Any hoo the milky bars aren't on him.

Let's do a little experiment to help you understand the difference. Get yourself some private time at your local track, but on arrival treat yourself to 6 pints with whisky chasers, followed by a bottle of red. Then compartmentalize any effects and head out for a few laps.

It was far more than just being tough enough or 'man enough' to 'control' the physical pain with Pedrosa. This was yet another injury on the same part of his tiny body that had been operated-on no fewer than five times since 2011. Previous scans had shown nothing other than a slight crack, but little Dani was in real pain - and he must of feared further damage around Laguna with its heavy braking demands and turns of direction. He was also still suffering with dizzyness (like Lorenzo) but still flew out to America and gave it his best, because (like Lorenzo) he was determined not to give-in without a fight. Stoner's un-manly re-action to his 'illness' is in stark contrast to the quiet, steely, courage and determination shown by the likes of Pedrosa, Lorenzo and most others - the real racers.

Stoner

Suffered from lactose , that tends to make you drowsy , tired and lack any sort of energy......you are constantly knackered.

Common sense tell's ye........don't ride 200mph + Gp bike   while suffering from a illness like lactose.

He should of been given a little bit of credit for using his nugget.

Imagine he blanket out mid race and took out a shit load of  rider's......this place would implode!!!
