Stoner say's he disagrees with the direction the sport is going, so better to get out. I have to agree with him for once. The CRT element has debased a sport of kings.

AS A FAMILY MAN I RESPECT HIS MOVE.

HOWEVER INDICATION HAS SWIRLED THAT MAYBE MOTO GP IS FALLING OFF THE MAP. TICKETS ARE EASIER TO GET NOW. THE GRAND STANDS ARENT FILLED LIKE BEFORE. I LOVE MOTOGP. BUT IF YOU READ STONERS COMMENTS MOTOGP IS CHANGING IN A DIRECTION THAT HE DOESNT LIKE. ROSSI SAID SOMETHING SIMILAR. WHICH IS WHY WSB MIGHT BE A BETTER CHOICE FOR THEM TO GO TO IN THE END. LIKE BIAGI, MALANDRI, NOW STONER AND ROSSI PERHAPS?

JUST A THOUGHT. IF YOUR NOT ENJOYING YOUR WORK? QUIT!

I don't blame him...if I was a multi-millionaire at 26, and had to put my life on the line every day to stay at the top of my game - with a wife and family counting on me - I'd be right with him. He has his whole life ahead of him, and he can do whatever he wants.

Casey is a real talent...and the sport is worse off for losing him, but I won't miss his attitude and lack of charisma on the paddock at all. The show is not just about riding the bike - it's about being a celebrity, and a ***** for the manufacturers and sponsors. He was great at riding, but not great at the rest.

That being said, my guess is that he sees the writing on the wall, and doesn't want to participate in the rise of the CRT era. We are at the beginning of the decline of MotoGP as we know it...and some will be able/willing to make the transition, and others will not.

All my best to him and his family.

I think it's just a stunt so that Honda will offer him more money. I hope so, I will miss his riding style lol it was fun to be able to see him visibly push the bike over the limits
