Dacron so what you are saying is now all the riders are on the same tyre to equal the Bridgestone Michelin advantages of previous years Stoner cant adapt as well as other riders.

If the tyre rules were left the same as the good old days of overnight specials who do you think will have been winning every race rules change and riders need to adapt.

It took Stoner 4 years to get his second championship to slow to adapt to change

for sure that is the overall reason the points didn't tally up , but there's nothing new in that either , thats how he races and always has , ive never seen him not race to win.
but that problem comes from the tire problems , these tires are made for smooth flow riding thats why they are so grippy , stoner is a savage rider that needs to feel the bike moving under him and slide perfect corners , the problem is they don't slide like they used to and when they do they re grip .
if the tires were left alone chances are he would of sailed off into the distance year in year out , so its not hard to see why the tires get changed everytime he has everything in place because he is too dominant , and dorna want close racing to bring in more paying fans.
also they wear out too Quick now forcing him to avoid sliding corners or riding off into the distance.
