MotoGP » Rossi: Austin MotoGP test 'very important'


Oh the other thing I wanted to add was Tiger Woods versus Nickolaus. The longer you go on the harder it is to dominate I agree, but the thing is Rossi has been dominant for a very long time, JLO is consistent now but after 6 years has 2 WC like Stoner. Everyone was talking Woods eclipsing Nick's number of majors by the time he was 30, time has demonstrated that maintaining that level for a long time is difficult. Also I will always maintain that 2010 was handed to JLo with all three aliens out for extended periods. This year he will have 3 other definite contenders for the crown let's see if that consistency remains under pressure. The thing about Rossi is I feel he thrives in that environment which and this is not a shot per se but I believe Stoner particularly didn't.

MotoGP » Rossi: Austin MotoGP test 'very important'


Hi Zulu, I can see what you are saying I am just saying you can remove 2010 because he was injured and 2011-12 because IMHO he was not on a competitive bike. These factors influence the near term comparison. If we look at the period say 2005 to 2009 or say 2006 to 9 when all three other aliens were in place and he won 2 of the 3 WC. Equally in 2006 you could say Stoner was just starting and Rossi had many well documented bike issues which in alot of ways lead to Hayden taking out the WC. I can still picture Rossi crashing in the last race to hand Hayden the WC that year.

Actually Rossi is the most consistent as he holds the record for most consecutive race starts in MotoGp. Also people have short memories you have to understand he won 2008 and 9 (so back to back WC which none of the other aliens have been able to do) had a major injury in 2010 which wrote off his season and then went into the wilderness which is Ducati. We could argue about the Duc ad nauseum but a bike in WC contention it was not (and I think not in Stoner's hand either which is why I think he went to Honda).

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi 'pays a high price' for traction


Goat I won't waste my time pointing out the confluence of issues that came together to secure Stoner his Championship in 2007. A big part was Stoner but not solely. Equally we have seen his wins diminish considerably over those 4 years to the point where on balance it was likely that in 2012 he would not have won a race. As for Honda once again great rider but also great bike and explain to me why he did not repeat in 2012 and was outridden by his teammate on the same bike (if he is the greatest rider).

MotoGP » Water, electric complicate Rossi’s Sepang return


Damo46 even before Rossis injury, 99 was leading the standings in 2010. - 2010 Rossi came 1st in the first race dislocated shoulder before second came third and then second in the 3rd for a deficit of 9 pts to Lorenzo. Crashed broke leg in fourth, end of season. Lorenzo had his nemesis missing and Stoner was on the Duc which was going backwards. Voila WC. 2012 was in some way a repeat and he also was pretty lucky at that wet race to have it cancelled as he was at sea with that tyre choice. As we can see if all are fit we are for the first time in a long time looking at 4 possibly 5 way contest. So Johnson I will take that bet, Jorge won't do back to back, but if he does against this field (assuming they all stay fit) I will call him a better rider than Stoner.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: I hadn't forgotten how to ride


Stavros Mate isn't the fact that he got injured the point to win back to back wc you have to go uninjured for two seasons. Not crashing to some extent shows a level skill (and indeed luck but not solely) particularly over two seasons. Stoner crash in 2012 was an unforced error on his part and came on the back of a previous race crash while trying to beat his team mate. Also muppet you are likely to have been one of the people saying Rossi crashed in 2010 in practice due to pressure but stoner in 2012 was just an accident.
