Two things...
1: I agree with Far Canal there - was great having the four way race. At the same time, it's been so close between Lorenzo and Rossi that that should keep us going to the end. We're not left with one guy just walking it now, like it would have been last year.

2: In response to Ty46 - pushing oneself that hard physically with a virus can have huge effects on long term fitness. Doing so can essentially leave you with post viral fatigue syndrome, which is very close to ME/CFS, and took me about 10 years to shift properly. I figure as fit as Casey is, he ought to be able to get better in the time he'll get (fingers crossed) but it's definitely better to play it safe.

I don't thinks its depression Casey was very happy after beating Rossi at Mugello, and then is supposed to be sad straight away at Catalunya? He is sick, it happens.

An hour has passed since this was announced and no patronising comments from Rossi about Stoner being a great competitor etc etc!

He's off the mark, never usually one to let an opportunity to get his name in a story.

C'mon Rossi marketing machine TM, show us all what a nice chap you are! :D

Shame to see Stoner go, now Rossi and Lorenzo seem to have nothing in their way but each other. Should be interesting to see how Kallio fairs with the GP9 and how Fabrizio handles the transition to GP.

Why Spies doesn't take Stoner's ducati???

I think he should win every moto gp race he 'll have to run too fast for Rossi & Lorenzo....for fair races, He should take an old 2 strokes 500cc as well.

I can't wait for watching him struggling against Nitro at Nurburgring. Spies momentum is over yet. HAHAHAHA

I just don't believe the suggestion that he wants to quit racing. He has worked too hard to get where he is and will certainly not want to be remembered as a one trick pony.
I had glandular fever some years ago, and he shows all the symptoms. It totally wipes you out, for months and months. It's almost impossible to go more than 5 minutes without losing all energy. I can't imagine what it must be like trying to ride a MotoGP bike to the limited feeling like that.
Max respect, and get well soon Casey.

To the doubters, Epstein Barr Syndrome is the virus that Barry Sheene suffered from in 1978, he was way off the pace in a few races, he also suffered from people doubting it as well.
I hope Casey get's well soon , Barry had it for about 8 weeks but it went almost overnight.
It is a shame but Casey would not win this years title anyway, that is Rossi or Lorenzo's championship being realistic....
