Lets see the power of Stoner in Kangaroo land.. I bet Pedrosa will win and prove once and for all that there is no need to make movies like Stoner does! Prepare the excuses Stoner fanatics.. Stoner is the number one bitch of Pedrosa now..ahaha

hey,we had a rider recently put his hand up to indicate he had a problem--the race start was abandoned,now we have a rider literally telling race
control to stop the race,it was stopped seconds later
--do i see a pattern here.If i were jlo i would want the race stopped if i was starting to feel casey's heat coming at me.

I don't care who wins the Moto GP championship but I will be glad to see the back of Stoner. Fed up with hearing his BS even more so now since we had a few weeks of peace and quiet without him.

Lorenzo chose the wrong Tyre and as it went off he decided to call the race off rather than losing more points when Stoner was about to pass him.

The Tyre rule in the rain needs to be changed, if you choose the wrong tyre (Lorenzo) you should slow down to a manageable speed and allow the faster riders through.

So to sum these anti Stoner comments
If you are a genius rider but don't show off then you are a moaner.

Notice Rossi no longer shows off now he has been outed as not being as quite as good when he is on a bike that Stoner was capable of winning a world championship with.

Lorenzo has also stopped showing off recently and has been "moaning" a lot, in other words he has been riding and talking serious to you anti Stoner fanboys..

Sid of all the riders who crashed out due to the worsening conditions how many were on the softer compound rear tyre? Do you know? I know Lorenzo was running the softer compound rear.

just wanna lmfao at a bunch of posters on here who vent their frustration over their hero on Stoner. Yes, Stoner makes him look like an amatuer on that duke, but it's not Stoner's fault. Well, keep on slagging off Stoner guys, until you all get back to reality.

I'm not anti Stoner Doc just anti bitchin'. I used to feel the same about Lorenzo until he grew up and shut up. These blokes are living the dream and have sweet FA to moan about. Stoner is always trying to be controversial yet it doesn't work because he simply isn't likeable. Rossi not very good? The record books say otherwise and the bike he started last season with was the bike Stoner crashed a a lot the season before and that bike was completely different to the one he won the world championship on. This was the same bike he pleaded with Ducati NOT to change but in their arrogance they ignored him and ended up with a bike that got steadily worse.

Pedrosa must have been too far ahead for Stoner to see if he thought he could have won the race had it not been stopped. I can only assume casey thought jlo was in 1st position because everybody else knew he didn't have even the slimmest of chances of catching Dani today.
And for him to say that he always finds more speed than anybody else in these conditions, the arrogance knows no bounds.
Good luck in whatever he does next but good riddance .

I detect a lot of stoner haters around.As a former racer i rolled my Mitsubishi Lancer turbo 9 times one
day and went to work the next day---wouldn't advise a motogp rider to do that,especially with a not fully
healed ankle.Without taking anything from former champ
Rossi,casey rode Ducati like a man on a mission for many years,only Bayliss is more daring in my opinion.
