Kallio said bikes have not so big difference. There are different mechanics than in his satellite team. Can they bring something new how to adjust bike? get it faster or more rideable?

Serious bummer. While I'm a Rossi fan, I admire Casey and think he's one of the 3 best riders in the world. What he has done on the Duc is amazing.

Hoping he gets better ASAP.

I read an article by Kevin Cameron on Ducati's decision to go to a carbon fiber frame. He sort of implied its the root of their problems, with CF being so stiff, causing "pumping" of the suspension on load. Rear grip is what Hayden has complained about I believe.

My how all the crap Stoner's Moaners are posting sounds just like all the bile thrown about by the Biaggi fans and all of the fans of the other past "New Great Riders who got the right stuff to knock the goat off".
You dudes sound just the same,go back five years and other "fans" barked about how Biaggi was gonna do this and that to Rossi and how Seth Giberish was destined to dethrone the king and take the sport to new heights cause he pushed him to the limit, then the Hayden "Era" happened and how Rossi was done cause the Kentucky kid got the best of him then here comes the Moaner who was in the right place at the right time. Stoner when sick still finishes top four so y quit now Goatitis?

Mark you are very clearly uninformed the CF bits have been cause for improvement for the pumping. Last years conventional frame was even worse. Hayden noted a marked improvement as did Kalio and Stoner. You are just wrong. To get back on topic Stoner should be applauded for what he has done in just keeping those boys in sight while that ill. The dude is a fighter believe it. Ive have yet to see anyone humble Rossi like he has with just sheer velocity. People that say stoner is just faking have cleary never pushed themselves beyond exhaustion. Because when you have you understand these things can happen.

I've been trying for the past hour to find the article i read last night about an employee at some clinic in Melbourne who got fired for revealing stoners test results saying he has some kind of lymphatic cancer. I'll keep trying to find it. I pray it's not true.

Haga's style has gotten much smoother since his Sultan of Slide days, but he wouldn't adapt well to the 800's, IMO. Fabrizio is the better choice if they must pull from WSBK. It is interesting that Gibernau's name hasn't been mentioned yet for the third race, he is familiar with the bikes.

I worry that Stoner's problem is more mental than physical and we won't see him at the front end of the field any time soon, if ever. In my observation most riders that mentally run out of gas are done and an injury is the excuse they use to leave while saving face.
