Stoner targets Brno victory

The Australian is making good grounds in the overall standings with a run of podium finishes, but is yet to taste the winner's champagne this season.
Casey Stoner is confident he can be in the hunt for victory in the Czech Grand Prix as he tips into the second-half of the 2010 MotoGP season with no win to his name still.

The former champion has been creeping closer to the front of the field in recent races, managing a season-best second place at Laguna Seca after a trio of third place finishes.

Still in the direct hunt for second position in the overall standings – he is 35 points behind Dani Pedrosa -, Stoner is now looking to go one better on his return to Brno and fight for the win.

“Brno is one of my favourite circuits – I have liked it since I raced there for the first time back in 2002," the Ducati rider said. "It is long and flowing, with a lot of direction changes and plenty of opportunities to overtake. It is the kind of circuit that lends itself to spectacular races and I can't wait to race there again – I wasn't fit to ride last year and I missed it.

“I want to make up for that this weekend so we'll be looking to find a good set-up for the bike, improve by a couple of tenths compared to the rest and be fighting for the win.”

Bob is just a smelly fart, just pollutes the air in here. He turned into a looser when Vale beat Stoner in 2008 and 2009. He just couldnt digest it so he just insults people here. Just ignore him fellas, he is a nobody.
