acidraine. rossi was actually JUST ahead of stoner, when the bike nosedived. stoner was , i think, going for a sross over and his front wheel was so close to rossis sliding rear, that he had no hope of avoiding.
i am not a bike buff, but i would have put that down as a racing incident, similar to those that appear on eurosport "crash" programmes.
however,if there is an inquiry, i reckon that whatever the result, there will be a number who agree with the finding, and just as many disagreeing. thats life!

A mate of mine said yesterday that Casey could've made a hero of himself by 1st going to see if Valentino was ok before worrying about his bike.

He said that would've made headlines & won Casey a lot of fans :)

I seem to recall Stoner throwing away the front end on numerous occassions when he was riding the Ducati,but it appears it,s only OK for him,but not for anyone else!!!....If this "boy" could grasps the fact that this is motorcycle racing,& he has to battle with proffessional racers,then it will become obvious that overtaking is a gamble,& sometimes the machine will slip from under you......IT HAPPENS !! ..Even "proper racers" crash from time to time.Seeing as how Valentino was wearing his crash helmet,when you were sarcasticly telling him off & treating him like a novice,you want to consider yourself lucky he did,nt drop it on the bridge of your nose !!!!!!...no wonder you can count your fans on less than 1 finger.

Sorry guys but this extremely patchy new video only reinforces that Rossi, who caused the accident, was the first one to get help whereas any assistance for Stoner was more or less an afterthought. There's just the one conscientious guy who ends up helping Stoner push the bike along the track. The rest of them either walk away or fall on their butts.

I always find it strange people that have to announce that they are not something...your words say what you are, and I do not care if you are a fan of Rossi or not. I just think it is funny that everyone always has to go on about how Stoner should have handled everything, I don't think he is ever going to handle anything in anyway but his way. I remember growing up being told to be yourself, but that just isn't good enough for Stoner. As to maturity I wouldn't label much of the on track/race meet antics of any rider as particularly mature, I watch for the racing not the philosophy.

The cause of this incident was Rossi's fault, it is absolute. Do not divert attention to something else. Call Rossi told him that the glory has gone, and give him a chance to establish a new racing team. If rossi still racing ahead will make the Moto GP is less developed, because the things that non-technical such as this will be repeated.
