Interesting reading the biased uneducated comments. I must have been watching a different race. I admit it wasn't an entertaining race but there were some good battles back in the field.

I think Dani looked like he was fighting his bike on the corner exits which was likely due to the chatter. If you can't get on the power early it makes it harder.

Jorge had a good clean run but I'm not sure he has the pace if the Honda's get the chatter sorted out. BTW Jorge didn't catch Stoner. Stoner was a lot slower in the closing laps allowing the other guys to pass him. To me this indicates he did have a problem.

Good races by Dovi and Cal. They showed some promise but are off the pace a little. Rossi should have retired last year.

I am not so sure those so called "mind games" work on any of those guys anymore. Lorenzo would have seen what Stoners bike did at the end. Those guys are pro's and can see if a tire goes of specially following almost a whole race.
But it's what they say in post race interviews. Hardly any of them say "yup - my bad, wrong strategy" or something like that.

I am not a Stoner hater of a Rossi fanboy. But I do sometimes make a negative comment about Stoner because his die-hard fans can talk some about of BS on here....

This track is apparently a Stoner track, he's won here so often and always on pole. This year he was 2nd in qualifying and 3rd in the race. Thats a bit of a blow if you ask me. If his advantage was going to show somewhere this track is where it should be most apparent.

The same bs for BS (Ben Spies) cant seem to get off the line on the 800cc and now still cant off the line on the 1000cc and people said this 1000cc suppose to better suited the ex-Superbike riders. Jorge and Casey would still be riding fast even if they are all racing lawnmower. Fast guys still fast and no excuse!

Well how about this.... these 3 riders are clearly the cream of the crop. Lets hope they will all be closely matched all season and give us some good racing to cheer at. I'm not a huge supporter of any of them but I do respect them all for various reasons. They all have their strengths and weaknesses and with the new engines and tyres this seasons could through a few unexpected results at us.

@ nick881.....Stirring the pot again are we mate.

So wasnt Phillip Island a Rossi track ??
I now believe it is a Stoner track, so as you can see nothing stay's the same.
you know if Casey goes to Jerez next race and finishes on the podium, he will actually be better of on the points table compared to what he was after Jerez last year.
The good thing about this race and Jorge winning means it is going to be a excellent fight for the Title and that is all that matters and from what I have read from the riders it is what they want as well.
