it is Jorge's championship to lose. The facts are that when all 3 were healthy at the start of the season it was Jorge and Casey taking wins. Now that Casey is hurt and Jorge is protecting a championship lead Dani has looked superior which amounts to matching Jorge's win total.

Dani has had his best season so far but has not been able to match the pace of the other two and if Jorge needed to he would have taken a few of those recent wins away from Dani. With a sizeable points lead and having to nurse his engine allocation that just wasn't smart.

What universe do you live in? Casey Stoner has a job which happens to be that of a professional motorcycle racer. Like any job he has an obligation to his EMPLOYER. This includes a contract which he has dutifully fulfilled with no conplaints from his employer. He has chosen to retire and not continue, refusing a contract renewal.

People retire beacuse they can afford to do so (I'm sure Stoner can support generations of family) and to spend more time with that family (jetting around the world is probably not the best way to raise a child).

Its his decision to make and to think that loyal fans deserve any say or credit is ridiculous, its the other way around. You can continue kissing your 46 poster at night and believe that Rossi is appreciating you when he mugs for a camera and that he OWES THAT TO YOU if it makes you feel better.

I thought this was a man's sport???

I never believed on the "Yamaha, the best bike in the track" story. Dani Pedrosa has turned into a fearless and an intelligent rider backed by the best bike of all time, the Honda RCV.

the season was better for lorenzo at the beggining and better for dani at the end of the season. The problem for dani is that the first half he had Stoner stealing little points, even when Lorenzo DNF in Lemans Dani didn't won because of Stoner, while Lorenzo used only one hand to win in Misano because there was not stoner.

so it has been even for both more or less, but it was unbalanced because of the injury of Stoner. it's a pity because the championship would be so exciting at this moment...

Anyway... the season is the season and the winner is who take more points at the end. Lorenzo did a brillant season too. I'm fan of both and it's a pity that stoner is not here next year.

To answer your question elsie. No he wouldn't because he and most of the other riders have little or no respect for Rossi. He can ride a bike but his politics are Bellusconi like.

I for one will never forget Casey Stoner and in years time I will look back and say I saw one of the greatest riders of all time. You raced against some of the greatest and sometimes won and sometimes did not, but you rode like one of the greats from old, I hope you win this Sunday and at Valencia too, you deserve it By the way if my wife looked like yours I would retire early Good luck

All comments are interesting, But!!!!!!!.
What I'd like to see, is Casey return after a couple of years, to Ducati and take out another 2 WC's then retire for Good.
The only stipulation I would put on Ducati!!!!!, that they pay Case, Twice as Much as Rossi
Don't write Case off bcause of injuries, he's a Bloody Li'l Aussie Battler, He's the "Bike Whisperer"
