What about this year when Stoner had a go at Rossi, tapping the back of his bike and saying Rossi was like dog following him around.

I think Rossi has demonstrated that he knows how to go round most of these tracks. I have not put this up because it is Rossi but simply because at what level does Stoner go actually that guy is my peer maybe I should simply work on my own race.

A complete numpty.

Casey always complaining another rider is following him or getting a tow.
come on casey, Karel is no threat to you, he obviously figures he might be able to learn something from riding behind you as you are a great rider, instead of having a whing about it maby you can show him or give him a tip or two instead of being a jackass,

1) You are doing practice laps to test and improve your own bike.
2) Having somebody following close behind affects your aerodynamics and therfore your braking markers, acceleration etc.
3)When trying to asses changes to your bike from lap to lap, having somebody in your draft makes those comparisons invalid.

This is why EVERY SINGLE racer in MotoGP, World Superbikes and all forms of motorsport I can think of, do not want somebody tailing them unless invited to do so.

It might be natural to try and follow a faster rider to learn. It is just as natural for the faster rider to refuse to co-operate.

Casey has allowed other's to follow, team mates or otherwise, after an agreement, on track or off. Calling him a moaner when he refuses to allow another rider to follow when he is trying to do comparison laps is then slapping that same label on Dooohan, Roberts, Rossi etc.

Most of the rookies look to get tows from the faster riders, its only stoner that makes a fuss about it, he is a petulant little tw@t and gets all bald about it. he was a poodle in a previous life.

In case you dopes are struggling with this, the reason Stoner doesn't like these 2nd rate riders following him, is when they screw up they can run into him, just as KA did last week. Those of you saying casey rammed him have no idea what you are talking about. Casey was in front of him at the time. Pretty impossible to "ram" someone when you're in front. The problem was KA was up his back side and Casey slowed in a spot KA wasn't expecting. That is the accusation KA made, but as the rider following, it is his job to stay out of the way of the guy in front and not run into him, no matter what he does.
This website is ruined by idiots with absolutely no idea about racing. All you Rossi fanboys came to the sport because of him, and you will lose interest when he retires. I can't wait. In the meantime you continue banging on about Stoner, as he is the one who is making Rossi look stupid and it burns you. Rossi cannot ride the bike that Stoner won on. See... feel the burn? It pains you does
