MotoGP » Stoner: A weight off my shoulders


rolling stoner, No one under-appreciates how good Troy Bayliss was. If you want a fascinating read on Casey Stoner and his retirement, read this great blog on Motomatters: "And why does he hate his media commitments quite so vehemently? The truth is that Casey Stoner was never forgiven for the cardinal sin of beating Valentino Rossi in a straight fight." tinyurl.com/caq5aqt

MotoGP » Casey Stoner: Why I'm leaving MotoGP


I am gutted. MotoGP will never be the same. What a loss. Thanks for the entertainment Casey. To quit at the height of your powers, you could have been the highest paid rider in the world next year and Honda's poster boy. You you made a decision from the heart. It takes great courage to walk away from it all - the fame, money and the show that was large part of your life. My respect for you has grown 100x.

MotoGP » Stoner expects evenly-matched Le Mans


Burgess has dismissed commentary that a supposedly radical seamless shift Honda gearbox is an advantage that will guarantee race wins. Stoner will do that all by himself. "It is not rocket science," "Honda haven't done anything special except hire a new rider (Stoner)," Burgess said. "And I don't understand the fuss on the Honda gearbox -- it is totally standard engineering these days" tinyurl.com/86oohpe

MotoGP » Stoner expects evenly-matched Le Mans


TedG, Before you go plucking random BS out of thin air about the Honda gearbox. Here's what a real expert has. Jeremy Burgess "All this talk about a seamless shift gearbox will not be the reason Honda win races. I can tell you that you would be a mug to think that the Yamaha M1 gearbox is not something special. "If anyone thinks Honda now have cutting-edge technology, it might be because they have come from a long way behind. "Yamaha have a very smooth, advanced system. I know how it works and I've also been privy to the inside of some of the trick F1 gearboxes with the top teams. "Seamless shifting is not an engineering marvel, it is not rocket science. You might save one hundredth of a second, and that's only on an upshift. For sure it's a nice feeling for the rider to have those shifts but it's not the difference everyone is rabbiting on about."

MotoGP » Stoner surprised by Jerez victory


Incredible poise and race craft by Stoner. He saved something special for the final stages. On the final lap, Lorenzo looked pedestrian. Some of these guys may rue running the soft front, however so did Stoner - and that fact that Stoner's bike is chattering, lack corner speed and he's having arm pump doesn't look too good for Lorenzo. Lorenzo's best hope is to take advantage of the arm pump problem and Honda's problem with the tyres and corner entry - because if by mid season the bike is sorted, it'll be all over. Regardless of how fast Lorenzo is, there is no way he can match Stoner's pace.
