He's paid to wear the hat and shirt. HE HAS TO WEAR it at anyplace that he is to be filmed or photo's taken... It's a bonus in a way as you don't have too worry about what to wear when you're a corporate billboard.

Just do it!
Ride the winds of change.
I'm loving it.........

So the above will make you a Nike shoe, Suzuki ridin' McDonnalds Monkey boy!

What I truly admire about Stoner is that he doesnt care about personality or popularity contests like other riders. Stoner just wants to ride his bike and wants to ride it fast. All the other riders are just in it for the money and the fame.

What an odd comment.
He has just retired, which proves he doesn't "just want to ride his bike and wants to ride it fast."
Just another example of a misguided, off-topic post.

hi,look back to your previous comments in response to the Mack's open enquiry.Obviously u are blindly worked up as if it hits ur hero,Rossi.In fact,none of us did tell so.Your anger shows us that it might be Rossi was really up in your head to the rise of such a question 'who won the failure of the year?' if ever there.
then why brought up Stoner thing?.Did Stoner fail to win one single race on RCV last past season?.
a Failure defines when it's given all the best that is requested as possible with Development direction centered around a particular person yet he doesn't deliver any significant/expected results or at best said 'Very Disappointing' which is not worthy all the big efforts.
Had somebody asked me for a bet,I would have doubtlessly put my money on Rosi over NH in his first year regardless Rosi lacked some years on it.because of favoritisme & X factors that backed him up.
But next year,If VR was still with Ducati,with NH as lead reader,I will say 'YES on Nicky please!'

What i tell to Mark was my list of Failures of 2012.. What i say is not what eveybody think thats 4sure but about Rossi, the desapointed part was the expectacion that was around about Italian rider and Italian Team and the fact that Rossi is the most successful rider im Motogp at the momente, because im terms of real target about Ducati for 2011 and 2012 let me tell you that there idea has a factory team is allways to Win but after finishing 2010 im 4 place on standings and having loss the titles since 2008 i think that first Ducati whanted to understand where they where at the star of 2011, and right there was clear that they where bad, Rossi finish im 7 place with the same points has Marco Simoncelli, Rossi try to improve for 2012 but was happening many changes at Ducati with new material to build and test many stuff to deal and even with that he did best then last year finishing 6 this year with more points so it could be a failure the expectacion around Rossi and is Results but on


December 04, 2012 2:05 PM

Results but on the realaty he end up doing better then last year and was Top Ducati so Rossi in the end did the best he could for what he have and we all know that the true problem was Ducati enginers and project Directors that where replaced now finaly after 5 years of trying to do the same has 2007 and fail Audi just say we whant somethingh diferente for 2013 we will see...

Now about Stoner he won the 2011 World Champion he did that making t loock esay and he also say that at Valencia interview at 2011 race that he didnt take any risk this sesson and since he allready was Champion he risk to win Valencia race, that nice final that beat Ben Spies to the line, after this the status of Stoner was really high he enjoy the bike he was called the fastest for many of is rivals and all of is rivals when they talcked about 2012 they allways say the target is try to beat Stoner but we know it will be hard, and offcorse with the massive performance of HRC im 2011 the Target for 2012 is obivus


December 04, 2012 2:06 PM

the Target for 2012 is obivus keep the crown and was what everybody expect from Stoner but he fail to do that and fail to beat is Team m8, it dosen t matter if people say is better or faster and he can be, what is importante is what he is able to do with pressure on race, aim not saying is bad just saying he fail is target and for a rider of is caliber that speack so much about people not give im he right value i think was desapointed to wach one rider like im having problems to beat Pedrosa and lossing to Lorenzo, just saying that people sometimes have big mouth and this was the case!!

About Hayden i dont have to talck notingh the haters of Rossi puch so much for is name im 2012, calling im the real man he is faster then Rossi, Hayden is a trope EtC and Hayden dont manage nothingh he was beated by Bradl for the Standings and loss to Rossi the 2 years of Rossi on Ducati, Hayden that people say love so much Ducati he likes the bike dont manage nothingh, put Ducati name on 9 place on t


December 04, 2012 2:06 PM

9 place on the standings with 3 years of this Team 3 years making the same mistakes some good practice sessons some good qualifys but never understandind the limit of the bike to not make mistakes on race, Dammm, this is what i call trying to survive on Motogp and just winning the good money of a factory Team and also the possibility of change on one factory that is allways higher we never know when they will become better because they build there stuff unlicke one Semi oficial Team, Hayden was just waiting for other chances to change Team but with all this lack of Manufacters and financal problems Hayden have no choice on trying to survive at Ducati expecting somethingh better for the future, has we know the future on Motogp is still a bit confused about Manufacters Teams but Ducati still give one last chance to Hayden he still have 2013 to prove that he deserve to be on Motogp like he whant thats why he dont go to Wsbk..
