@pheoni4eva...

Entertainer? i think you are in the wrong forum, if you want entertainment or entertainer you should watch x-factor and tv series not bike racing. Stoner id good but i don't think he will beat rossi's record but in 800cc era yes and maybe this coming 1000cc era he might be the best rider.

For all those touting Marc Marquez as the second coming, please remember that people said the same thing about Pedrosa and the similarities between Marquez and Pedrosa are numerous: build, riding style and history, to name a few. I don't doubt he'll be incredibly quick but it's entirely possibly he won't become the immediate world champion that people are expecting.

It's hard to say will Casey ever be more successful than Valentino, but fact is that Casey is 26 years old and on way to win his 2 championship with 38 victories and at the same age Doohan had just 4 victories and 0 titles.

@ LCTanner

Wow you actually believe your own Dribble?

If Stoner can win on that Spewcati...he can win on anything!
If want to keep justifying for Rossi not so great performance...Then I guees keep making more dribble!

Well considering that in his last 4 years on factory bikes Stoner has 1 WC and so many wins on the DUCATI, and soon to be 2 titles out of 5 on factory bikes, he has already beaten Rossi head to head, who has 2 titles in the last 6 years on factory bikes. And what makes that even more impressive is that Stoner, except for this year, had a WC and so many wins on the bike that Rossi cant even get close to the front on.

I doubt he'll beat Rossi's, that'll stand for a long time...like Schumachers record although Vettel is looking handy...who'll ever beat Loeb's record in rallying ?

It just takes a bad injury to really put a spanner in the works...look at Doohan himself, Rossi was quite lucky injury wise....he bounced pretty well.

You're right Meatlovers.
Unless Mick knows something different direct from Casey then I'd assume Casey will hang it up too soon.. I'm hoping he goes for atleast one more contract renewal but after a recent interview with Michael Scott after being asked how long does he intend to keep riding, Stoner says: "Not as long as most riders" It does make me wonder if he will. He doesnt care for records, he doesnt care for fame, he just wants to live normally.

And to whoever commented this: "He should try doing a real job day in day out, then he might realise how lucky he is. "

That's so spot on! .. I know Troy Bayliss really appreciated compared to what he was doing... He had a taste of real life and learned to appreciate how fortunate he was once he got a ride.

Heck, Stoners already ripped Rossi a new one during the 800cc era and would have ripped him a new one during Stoners first year in MOTOGP (900cc), if Stoner hadn't been on LCR satellite bike during LCR's first yr in MOTOGP (the upper echelon, not that 125/250cc thing).

Hail to Doohan, the real greatest of all time.
