not even the riders understand what he means.
thats why he is unique and can do what he does.
too many posters on here who comment bad about stoner , yet they have no idea how he works!
its a sad world because most people never see something thats right in front of them , they only notice when it has gone.

i think he's right!!! you just keep pushing like stoner did and often find the tarmac to kiss.!!!!

it takes pride to fall almost every weekend, like casey did on the duc. 2008 nothing but fall 2009 nothing but fall 2010 nothing but fall. that take's pride! hahahaha

I find it very funny , people hate him so much yet they still want to read or listen to what he has to say ,then complain when he states the fact . If you don't like what he has to say , don't read it or listen !!

you don't get mate , mabe because you ain't got anything to be proud about?
takes pride to fall hard then keep getting up and coming back to win.
there has never been a time stoner has not pushed his bikes to breaking point bar 09 when he was visually ill.
but you won't see it that way bro! , because you refuse to let yourself.
i guess there's a little pride in that.

I dont get people... Or I dont get readers on crash (Rossi fans).. .It seams that there is only rossi fans and rossi fans hating stoner for beating him "Rossi" on here. And when ever they have a change or a reason to bash stoner they do. Get over it. He is leaving also because of you guys and I understand. I will miss him both for racing at telling it how he feels.

Lets hope for all of you that your hero Rossi will be fast next year.

By the way 4 years at ducati 1,2,4 and 4 do you haters really call that bad results??? other bonus info those years there there was between 18 and 20 prototype bikes on the grit. Now only 11. What position dos Rossi hold in todays standings???

Haha to the bitter Yellow brigade and shame on Crash
this interview comes direct from an Australian Motorcycle magazine AMCN published in june for july
so you can work it out for yourself when the interview was........

This article was not related to Rossi's departure from Ducati It wasn't even known then officially crash likes to edit comments related to stirring the pot So I ask them are you going to edit and Apologise for ur stirring?????

I wonder how he views Troy Bayliss - the man who got on the GP6 as a wildcard after winning the 2006 SBK title and won with ease. This would then have been the bike he adopted in 2007 so it was already a proven race winner when he got it. By the time he'd finished with it, it was junk - much like the way his Honda now seems to be heading. Caseys ethos seems to be very much, "If it ain't broke, fix it until it is".

Taken out of school at 14, and spoilt by his parents.
It shows in the way he conducts himself. Never grew up in the real world. Hope someone gives him a hand to manage his money.
Would hate to walk past him in later years, in the street begging for money.
Before everyone gets all shirty, it can happen. Look at Gobert?
And the way the posts are going, Stoner won't get many people throwing money in his beggars hat.
Least of all me.
