Your examples there are a perfect illustration of one of the many reasons he got out.....he is still physically in pretty good condition, sadly of your 3 up there on the pedestal only one could climb up on his own and even he looks like his lower arms & hands have been repeatedly put thro' a mangle.

Retirement is a voluntary thing, I'm not sure any of your 3 retired totally voluntarily....more like 'enforced retirement due to injury'.

Lance,you need to learn what quit means.To quit is to leave before you have achieved what you set out to do.
Stoner said he wanted to win World Championships by beating the best.He achieved that and decided to move on.He always said he had no intentions of staying in Motogp for years and years.I think when his first child was born it give him other priorities.Having children tends to focus your mind more.

Stoner has not beaten Rossi on equal machinery! Stoner did do great work in 2007 but then his results deteriated the next four years on the Ducati because it was such a bad bike. It would have been better to see if Stoner could beat Rossi while they are both on Japanese bikes, the Honda vs Yamaha. I would have preferred to see him stay and see what would happen in 2013. To "quit" at 27 with ONLY 2 world championships is disappointing when he has that much talent, and I do respect his riding skills. It's a sad loss all because Dorna is damaging the MotoGP series with their stupid rules.

@Lance
You are really off the pace with this post.
He beat Rossi on the Ducati, cuz Rossi couldnt isnt his fault.
He beat Rossi while Rossi was on the Ducati, not his fault
He beat Rossi when Rossi was on a Jap bike and he was on a Jap bike (2006) not his fault.

You say he QUIT instead of retiring, so when Rossi leaves will he be QUITTING not retiring

Instead of being a Yellow panty boy, learn the facts and stop your anti Stoner BS, we are all over it.

If 'quit' is too bigger work for the Australian lovers to understand maybe the word 'resigned' is better put. Moaner himself said he had enough of the politics, rule changes, attitudes etc etc. So as with all of us non union represented workers we 'resign' i.e. QUIT, when our employers give us the shtis.

This quitter is lucky Rossi is still mixing it up on two wheels or he would show Stoner who's boss on four wheels also. Rossi can race and win at any venue. Stoner not so much.

Mark my words, he will quit V8's when he realizes he can't hang with the four wheeled crowd either.
