Hafta say im realli not that fussed on stoner but this is a massive blow for motogp, he is the best there is out there at the minute and riding at his peak, an awful waste and a shame! Lorenzo has to be gutted!

he just said "this has been coming for a couple of years now"???? This is just odd.

I understand the dignity of retiring when you're at the top, but he could have (and would have) achieved so much more. At least a couple more championships.

Its far too early.

He's going to pull a Paul Scoles! He'll be back. This is for more money. If I'm right, it's a great move

A sad day for true MotoGP fans.

We must consider the fact that Casey has been racing from the age of 4, and left home at the age of 14 to pursue his career in Europe. He's been in World Championship Grand Prix racing since 2002, thats 10 full seasons travelling the world. He started his career young, got married young, had a child young so to me its no surprise he is retiring young. He has already achieved the ulitmate achievement in his sport twice. I hope CS27 can retire healthy and spend some time with his wife and kid!!

@ Carmen Centennial Jr.

So motogp.com isnt reporting it?

I was watching the press conference live through motogp.com when Casey announced it.

Give them time and it will be reported, It was all over twitter by the time Casey had finished saying he would retire.

he is walking away so now you can all have your little battles you have cried for for so long.
he was too good for this sport anyway , from another time.
