also, Rossi's performance after he admitted himself he was completely healed got even worse. The more they changed the bike to what Rossi was asking for, and the more his shoulder healed, the slower he got. Better luck to Rossi, Hayden and Ducati this year.

saying Casey only can only win on a superior bike that would the same applies to Vale winning on a superior yamaha,so vale can only win on a superior bike while on a duke can never win even a single victory

All everybody on here is talking about is stoner and rossi and who will win the championship between them i am a stoner fan and the bloke i am worried about is Lorenza people seem to forget he could have won last year if a couple of things went his way and would definitaly have won if stoner was not on the honda i say watch lorenza not rossi

Stoner could have also mentioned that they just need to push a little harder this year and that the initial estimated units of measure to sort the bike out keep changing
80 seconds
80 minutes
80 hours
80 weeks
We're now at 80 fortnights

re: "Touching on the arrival of CRT, Stoner admits he hasn't been impressed with what he has seen of the production engined bikes, adding that some of the entries are likely to do nothing than 'make up the numbers'."

kid knows his MotoGp.

Stoner also forgot to mention, that rossi said openly, that he refused to ride the duke like stoner did,hence the dismal results last year,with more of the same this year cheers

@Ausrossi Mate i think you are clutching at straws if there was such a difference between the honda and all the rest why did yam finish second i think these "professional pundits" need a reality check.
In 2007 there was no magic in stoners win it was the best display of bike riding I have seen in my 50 years of following GP racing and I am including my two Idols Ago and Hailwood in that, also the yam in 2007,8,9,10 was the best handling bike i ever seen the only one that came close was schwanz on the suzi the year he won the title

Its silly comparing who you beat in the past etc.
Theres always different riders stepping it up.

Sete was at world class level on that Honda at the time.
Rossi moving to yamaha and bringing the level up to near the Honda.

Rossi vs Sete was some of the best racing.
