this is an article showing stoners record in his short career. not a stoner verse rossi debate. there is no denying vales records as they are very impressive , at the same time it runs for twice as long as stoners short stint. only difference is stoner achieved most of these records on a ducati and against vale , whereas vale only achieved a small fraction of his against stoner and on a yamaha.

@Nate Doggius. no mate he never won on the sat in 06 , a very close second to melandri though , and did lead a lot of races as well until the factories cut him down. his biggest problem in 06 was the second rate mitchelins he was using.
