MotoGP » MotoGP gets physical with 1000cc

“Under acceleration when we have grip there is also a little bit more g-force on the body so you have to keep yourself over the front a little more to try and stop the wheelie and in that way it's a little more physical" - Casey Stoner.

Stoner didn't really suggest it was the physicality of the new bike that gave him the arm-pump though. I thought it was new gloves which where too tight and weren't broken in properly.

obviously it's stoner's choice to opt for short running laps to demo his riding skill, super fast one lap wonder...

now he is suffering and complain...

@99er - I'm not a Stoner fan boy by any means, but do you not get tired of posting the same crap about him.

He will definitely win a lot of races this year and is still favourite for the championship. I think Jorge can defintiely exploit the few weaknesses he has though and will be challenging up to the end.

Wjat you need to understand though is that both Jorge and Casey are the dawn of a new era in Moto GP. Deal with it.

As Pedrosa quoted “It is just the way you ride them. The 800 you had to be very precise, instead here you can sometimes be more aggressive on the brakes or in the entry to the corner.” That was evident with his late brake pass on Stoner. Good move by the little man. He prepared himself for 1000cc. Nice stoppie,tight line,and onwards....brilliant

I disagree totally with the premise of this article. At the end of the day there will still be a fastest way through every corner and the top riders especially will still be nailing their reference points with super precision. There will still be many processional races this year, maybe even more.

Gloves too tight........... where did you pluck that 1 from?

“I haven't had any signs. I changed my gloves yesterday (Saturday) from an old set that I've been wearing for nine months and they finally gave up.

"The new ones were a bit tight and I never felt comfortable with them, so that probably didn't help. I had to put more effort in to grip the bike and that puts more pressure on your arm.“
