Good for you Casey. Having given so much to Moto GP and providing many great moments, it leaves you in an incredible position to enjoy so much from your life. With all your experience at such an early age, you can concentrate on your family life, take stock of all that you want to do and you will always be a winner.

Kudos to Stoner. He always had his head firmly in reality and knows that family comes first. He was never one for the limelight and glitter of MGP and hated the media circus it was.

I suspect he will destroy the field this season, making it clear who is number one but TBH I am not surprised, the pace is hot, the need to constantly pressure yourself is incredible, he is a unforgiving perfectionist and it take a toll. He has ridden at this level for 10 yrs, long enough.

Extremely sad to see him go but MGP will go on.

Did anyone see the look on Rossi and Lorenzo faces in the photo of the Presser after Caseys anouncement posted by Wilco Zeelenberg? Priceless. Much respect to Casey and Best Wishes for rhe rest of the season.

Will admit to not being a fan but i and the rest of you true fans should at least admire this lads talent, especially since we have seen how #46 has struggled to come to terms with that Ducati.
Good luck for the future Casey, i genuinely never expected this, hope the future is bright for you

Not really a shock to me, these guys put there lives at stake everytime they sit on there bikes,with his new daughter at home I can understand why he would want to walk away..not much fun being on the road away from your family.Like him or not the sport will lose its most dominating rider in the last 5 years.
Good luck Casey

What will now be interesting to see is how this brave and talented rider will invest his skills. One hopes that it will be for the over-all benefit of the sport in which he has learned and achieved so much.

@lctanner. Daft comment, he has nothing more to prove he's beaten the best already.
plus a legend is either dead or retired. posted by big sally....

Big sally...Daft comment. Rossi is a legend and he's still riding.
