MotoGP » Stoner set to retire between Doohan and Hailwood


@ bender "In ten years time outside of oz the world will have forgotten about stoner," You better get onto Youtube and have them remove all those video's of him drifting the bike for the last 5 years......have you seen them? .....some of them have had nearly 500,000 hits! wow!!. That will make room for all those other new video's of riders sliding their GP bikes around the circuit like ....um....and...er...

MotoGP » Stoner set to retire between Doohan and Hailwood


Stat's wont work for Stoner for a couple reasons 1 - He's the only one of the 'aliens' to have never ridden a factory bike in 125's or 250's ....so comparisons to other 'legends' in those classes is pointless. 2 - The race and title wins from 2007 till the beginning of last year were done on, by far, the worst of the factory bikes. I think most of his supporters (like me) on this site and motomatters.com became that way from watching him at the track .... he rides every lap(when he's on form)like a series of controlled crashes....incredible to watch live He'll be missed next year

MotoGP » Lorenzo: No wall if Rossi returns to Yamaha


There is absolutely no chance Rossi will go to Yamaha with Lorenzo still there . . this is why he left in the first place. Remember the comments along the lines of "I've developed a bike for Lorenzo to win on" ....now looking 2 years on, who's done the better development job? Rossi wont go anywhere where he has an "alien" team mate (remember he blocked Jeremy Burgess's request to have Stoner as his team mate in 2007) .....so this only leaves Ducati unless they get the "alien in waiting" Crutchlow on board

MotoGP » Stoner 'by far the fastest man on the planet'


@ Aussie grit I suggest you actually go to a GP and watch stoner ride, instead of working on a "personality" race. I also think that Stoner and Pedrosa may be riding the last prototype RCV's, the up coming 15,000 RPM rev limit means pneumatic valves aren't really needed and they don't need exotic materials to meet the 147 KG dry weight limit (look at the latest story at motomatters) I think Stoner has known about the above sequence of events and that's the main reason he's bailed.

MotoGP » Stoner: A weight off my shoulders


@ GJN Stoner is being paid about the same as Pedrosa and Lorenzo (approx 5 million euro). Rossi is being paid approx(till the end of this year) 15 million euro. Stoner is not interested in money, it's never been a driving force for him. About 3 years ago the Sydney Morning Herald published the top 10 highest paid Australian sportsmen (headed by Mat Maladin) and Stoner wasn't even on the list. The reason he's leaving is the bikes. He only wants to race race-bikes. He's never raced a production or production based bike and has absolutely no interest in them.
