The thing is that Stoner rides injured and doesn't carp on about it for months on end.

The highside he had previously was brutal, still got up and competed.

With the races so close together of late he's not getting the downtime to fix it properly, this also means no strength training.

2 week break here and he will come firing out at Aragon.....I'm sure Lorenzo knows this as well.

Quite a few of the team personnel have tweeted that USA back to Europe the following weekend as caused them one or two problems, mainly jet-lag I would imagine. The riders have to do all the PR as well, can't be easy.

Well well well,a thread posted on Crash guaranteed to whip up sh1t posts and hatred.Never thought i would see that!

to be fair every article is pretty much guarenteed to whip up sh!t posts and hatred, regardless of if it mentioned the names "Stoner" or "Rossi" they always find a way of mentioning whomsoever they want to insult or praise regardless.

Hopefully there's nothing more to it than a bit of jetlag (yes everyone else made the same journey but maybe it just affected him more this time)and lack of sleep.

many of you berks obviously never venture far enough from your own doorstep to have experienced proper jetlag.

As a big fan of both Jorge and Casey, im glad Jorge won, he totally deserved it, but give Casey a break, considering Marco and Dovi are on the same machinery it was Casey who made the podium f.f.s!!
