Lol all the references to Rossi
The man who won the most races in 2004
The man who won the most races 2006-2010 even more than stoner
Haha clinging to the old are yas? No mention of anything after 2010 lol
Stoner has been the most successful since 2006
Jorge has been the most successful since 2008
See the pattern newbies are faster than the old boy.
Rossi's championship days are done, although I am certain he will still win races.

I agree, the older riders find it harder to win titles..... however...... who's the current WSB champion? A 41 year old!

@ Zipp

Stoner managed most of his success on a Ducati. The bike 'the Doctor' couldn't get a single race win with in two years. On Stoners old bike he was embarrasingly slow on at the first Valencia test (Stoner finished second on the same bike just weeks before) and two years later Rossi gets lapped after he and Burgess 'developed' the new version. This is why Jorge and nearly all commentators describe Stoner as the most talented they have seen on a race track, and like it or not Stoner will be remembered as such.

As already mentioned, we in South Africa do not have the privilege to see the top riders in action, your winter is our summer, at the very least it would be fantastic to see the boys practice in South Africa or any other southern hemisphere country for that matter I am sure that they would share the same feelings. This would be good for our youngsters and for sponsors, at the moment it feels like Superbike racing is mostly a European family affair. FIM has to become more inclusive.
