I think it's great how Stoner gives you proper feed back on his days events "the details". Even when he's at the top he talks critically of his own riding.

Almost all people are talking about Rossi vs. Stoner.... Let's not forget how Lorenzo performed this year. He is undoubtedly is capable of achieving what Rossi has done in the past.. He is finishing 1st or 2nd, and if I'm not mistaken Rossi did the same when he was about 26 to 29 yrs of age.. Truly age caught up with Rossi, and nobody can do anything about it, just respect the man for what he did for the sport. However Stoner is adding insult to injury about Rossi, who do we thank for MotoGP. Rossi?-a man who raised the profile of the sport, or Stoner?-a man who can't stop b*tching about how bad MotoGP is today. Now you can answer who will be missed when both riders retires. Personally I'm a Dani fan, but it's a shame on what people are saying about Rossi, a man with 7 titles, one less than the great Agostini.

all these top level riders are amazingly talented, they are like 99% better than any club racing guys, they are riding at 100% of the limit of the bikes, if they ride at 99% the limit of the bikes they fail to get the results and all people can see this in sector times, date from the telemetry etc etc, they have to pust beyond all our undertanding..... we are not able to understand how they can do what they do, elbow down, leathers runnign on other riders tyres banked over etc etc,... to have these slagging off mathcte about who it the best , what moans, who need the best bike to perform etc is just stupid.All the tope level riders have greta respect for eachother, despite what they media would have you belive.....

how many people in the world can do what they do ? a handful... IN THE WORLD so to think they dont respect eachother just shows how little the spectator knows... we are not talking about ridrs here we are talking about people who have skill beyond our understandiing....

@27 goat I saw a lot of head shaking by him today followed by a temper when he got off the bike at one point, sandbagging doesn't come into it, he was overshadowed by his team mate today.
