Yup dacron, Stoner's rare ability is he can slide both front and rear with balance. Which why i have always enjoyed seeing him ride despite him clearing off into the distance. Also to add, Bridgestone wasnt special or much better than Michelin, Stoner made them so because he is able to slide them good. If Stoner was on michelin it wouldnt have suited him, because of the 'michelin slide' which can throw u off without warning. Similarly, not everyone can optimise the Bridgestone tyres, especially grip riders. It was sad then that Bridgestone tried to be a high grip tyre when its development was focused on the next world champion. As for Ducati giving him speed advantage when he rode it to world championship, u only have to look at his teammate and ask, why wasnt that guy champion? And then when Stoner left it was obvious what it took for Ducati to be champion.
