I have not bothered to research it,but how many Premier wins had Ago,Mike,Valentino and Mick notched up at their respective ageing to #27 ?
Anyway,nice one Sparky62.Agree.
Once the GPC have sorted their crap out,who knows ?
Age 30 and return for a one off season with Ducati like Mike Hailwood did back in 1978 at the TT just for the hell of it.
Hell,should he take a two year hiatus and return at age 29, he's still in the zone.
The mere thought must give some riders the creeps.

We're assuming he wont come back. Who knows, couple of years and he might get the itch again.
If someone as old as Schumi can get that spark back, a 29 yr old Stoner is even more likely.
