OMG!! . the helmets still on!!!
just heard some disturbing news about the future of motogp/world super bikes.
looks like casey's reasons for leaving are more serious than most think.

I said during the off-season that this could be the last year of racing as we've been used to it for the last couple of decades.

Whatever way the Euro zone situation goes, Spain and Italy have a few years of serious economic reality to deal with and as these two countries form the backbone of both championships there's no way things can continue as they are for what is basically an over-priced hobby for many people involved.

MotoGP is always interesting when rider puts his smile on his face no matter he lost or won. So why so serious hate each other, hey you Rossi and Stoner fan boys? This is a sport which should be full of respect among u.

dont hold your breath.

These 2 are 2 of the best of all time and hopefully all competition will now be on the track rather than mind games and negativity off it, which has obviously taken its toll on both riders.

More of the same please guys!!!

I have always felt the riders have camaraderie and self respect all along. Harsh words or actions are exchanged at the heat of the moment but at the end of the day (or season) when they look back they have great respect for each other. Just too bad that all the negativities are often sensationalised by the media, the fans being prey, the riders being victims and media the only winner in the situation. How many of us, haters or supporters of Stoner alike, actually knew or even take notice the exact words of Stoner to Rossi? At the end of the day the animosity is not between riders, but fans like ourselves.

Nice interview, guess many of us thought about that :).

In Jerez Rossi was full of stamina and all buzzed up, he got blinded by the chance of winning the race in the very first stages and was not willing to lose not even one second on his way up (he was starting from 12th).

Here it was different, it was toward the end of the race and I guess he was more cool minded.

Well done, great racing, sorry to repeat something that many Rossi-dislikers hate to hear but yes, motoGP is in a complete different league with Vale fighting for top positions.

all honda rider having problem to get the tire up to temperature, it took casey half a race to get it ready
(honda still having problem with chassis weight, and chatter)
if u follow the race casey start getting closer to lorenzo, but the rain stop and the track become less and less wet thus the tire overheat and start loosing grip on the edge of the tire thus if u notice casey change his riding style which is more upright position because the tire getting worse, and damage as lap go
that's why after fighting with rossi he cant push any harder because no more grip because the race track not as wet as before and it made the tire over heat excessively
