MotoGP » Rossi sets sights on 80th MotoGP win


Truefan last I checked circuits had bends and it is the bends where the Duc comes unstuck? And I fully accept that Stoner could ride the Duc better but I also feel he was prepared to push it more. As for evidence I thought I gave some. 16 wins on trellis, 6 on CF with 5 dnfs in his last season. He also decided to jump to Honda, which would be strange if he felt it was a clear WC winner (as distinct from a race winner). As for being owned your words but let look at the facts, both Dani and Casey confronted with same rule issues, Dani wins 7 completes season takes it to Jorge and beats Stoner in the only head to head clash that season where Stoner crashes. Stoner then crashes and writes off his season. Correct Casey often touted as someone with the ability to ride around issues was not owned by Dani.

MotoGP » Rossi sets sights on 80th MotoGP win


Bo who says Rossi's performance stayed the same to that of Honda. Give me race by race data showing that the gap did not change. It is pretty much accepted that from 2008 Duc did not advance compared to Honda or Yam and that 2011-12 was simply a continuation irrespective of whether changes were made (frame etc). As for a winning bike yes in 800cc it was and also did well in 1000cc testing. However two things relative to the Hon and Yam very little changed for the Duc in moving to 1000cc at that testing session and you had a rider with 4 years experience v one that had never ridden it. Jorge has clearly stated that in 2012 the Honda clearly made a step forward and that is also supported by Dani winning more that season than any other. The odd bit is that he owned his team mate who then crashed and ended his season... Testing is not races and the trend in race wins is clearly backward even under stoner. With the increased competitiveness of Honda in 2011 and more so in 2012 und

MotoGP » Rossi sets sights on 80th MotoGP win


Thank you Codger the voice of reason, I agree in trying ever harder to win on that bike he would have had a very major off. To me he was very lucky with injuries in those 4 years and look at 2012 was on a bike with a much better temperament and had a season ending injury. He only had to fall slightly differently on the Duc and it could have been career ending. And despite all his getoffs people still wonder why Rossi would not take it over the ragged edge and yet still finished lead Duc both years

MotoGP » Simon disagrees with Stoner


At the end of the day CS wanted it both ways he wanted to say what he thought (which was variously interpreted as telling it like it is or spouting crap) but then somehow not be held to account. I wonder about his communication skills because seemed to say alot of things in such a way that they could easily be misinterpreted (and agree that the media is also to blame) but blind freddy could see that some of those statements would garner a pretty strong response which he then used as one basis for him leaving. As Ozzy Osbourne once sang those you criticise (constantly) you make your enemy...

Codger just as it would have been interesting if he had left two years earlier I also wonder what would have happened if Casey had stayed at Duc these last two years. As I firmly believe that as Honda made the catchup and if anything made a leap forward (and Dani also) that despite the rhetoric Casey's performance on the Duc would not have been markedly different to that of Rossi particularly in 2012. Equally if you look at 2012 Casey was on one of the best bikes and both lost a equal machinery head to head battle with his team mate and had a season ending getoff so it does not necessarily follow that Stoner would have dominated even if he had gone to Honda two years earlier. A good chance but not automatic especially with Rossi still on a Yam during those two years.

MotoGP » Stoner leaves door ajar to MotoGP return


Not a stoner fan, I think you can see that not everyone thinks the sun shines out of Casey's... Dacron that is a blanket statement Casey by all accounts was heading back to Switzerland, not work commitments, equally even if he did I am sure if he said to sponsors "sorry guys one of my fellow riders died on the circuit you may have caught in TV, and I want to go to the funeral - response no sorry mate you can't go we need you to flog our oil, yeah right, like I said maybe he wasn't invited but I am sure if he shown a desire to be there room would have been made...

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo talk MotoGP 2013 during Jakarta visit


Well said Bond, Casey left Ducati because the bike was going backwards, Rossi thought he could turn it around he couldn't he left. What you expect these guys to stick around on the vague assumption that things will improve 2 years is more than enough time to see a change. I fear that Ducati may change but that is because they got a German on board. Either way neither Casey nor Rossi were quitters because they left Ducati they did it because it was the logical thing to do, and they were good enough riders to get gigs with the two best factory teams.
