MotoGP » Marquez: Rossi is still my idol


Well, MM is once again involved in bumping and crashing. But this time he crashed himself out. The Doctor can play that game (not that he wants too) That was a dumb move. Way to aggressive (sloppy really) and dangerous. He could have been sitting in a healthy second place. Now he is 30 pts back. But I like the guy and he said the right things. Just wish he'd give riders an extra inch of space!

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


Fabulous race! What an opener. Just incredible to see Rossi pulling this off at 36yrs old. Incredible. Could not be happier to see Dovi and Iannone up there too. Dovi really needs to be on a competitive bike. He is way to good a racer to have his talents wasted on anything less. Iannone is a hard racer and I think can make his mark in the premier class. VERY glad to see the Ducati's back. They remind me of the 2007 Ducati. Not the best in the corners but still very good. And the power down the straights is just nuts. Just like the 2007 Duc. Crazy to watch them close the gap on the straight. I almost pulled a muscle punching the air at Rossi came down the straight to take the win. This race is going into my MotoGP classics folder to be watched over and over.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to make motorcycle racing comeback


Jimmy1: No one rode bike like Stoner, not even Marquez. MotoGP is so dull without him. Now Marquez' closest rival is old Rossi who couldn't make any remarkable result on bike on which Stoner was WINNING. Go figure.
It wasn't the same bike. It was getting progressively worse. Go back and watch the 2010 season. Stoner would crash out on it for no reason. Up front all by himself and just lose the front and go down. I'll give credit still though that he got wins on a bike no one else had success on. But he isn't even in the same category as Rossi. Both his championships came on bikes that far outclassed the rest of the field. Even in 2008 his bike was superior and Rossi flat out raced him and mentally broke him. Crushed him. Stoner was fast, but far from the racer Rossi is/was. Marquez would crush Stoner. He is lightening fast AND an incredible racer too. Mentally strong. Give me a break, Stoner, as a racer, isn't in the same league as Rossi and Marq

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to make motorcycle racing comeback


@Painless Not my results. They are VR and CS's results. They are indisputable. If making excuses, both riders excuses must be used.. Rossi's bike in 2006 was a POS. Multiple DNF's and still 2nd. 2011 and 2012, POS bike. 2010 Rossi breaks his leg. One of those years Stoners tummy hurt. If they swap bikes? Rossi has more wins and more championships. 2006 Rossi finishes better than a rookie Stoner. 2007 Rossi 1st. Ducati best bike in the first year of 800cc bikes. 2008 Rossi 1st. Ducati still the best bike. 2009 & 2010 Stoner probably finishes better than Rossi but does not win championship either year. Only a true racer could beat an on fire JL. 2011 and 2012 Rossi 1st. Honda nearly unbeatable. No excuses? 4 to 3 Rossi wins. Indisputable.

Mintox: You gotta be kidding??? Try reversing the names in your fantasy story and you might have it close to right. Rossi had the superior bike as evidenced by the end of season testing at the last race of the season. Casey sat on the Honda and went straight to number 1 and Valentino went to last on the Ducati. Then Ducati redesigned the whole bike for Valentino and he still couldn't do any better than 8th. Casey made Rossi look like the clown he is, and that's why his fans re-write history to be able to get through the day.
Had Stoner been on the Ducati or the Yamaha in 2011 and Rossi or Lorenzo on the Honda, Rossi or Lorenzo would have won the championship that year. Had they all been on the Honda who knows. But one of the top 3 riders on the Honda and the other two on a different bike, whoever was on the Honda wins. The bike was unbeatable in 2011. But look what happened in 2012. The bike got a little wiggle and Stoner dropped to third in the champions

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to make motorcycle racing comeback


Painless: Same old same old. Here are the stats from 2006 to 2011. You cannot compare prior to 2006 because they weren't racing each other. In 2006 Stoner was riding a satellite blow-bag.I know that there will be no response because there never is. Oh wait I know, Rossi has won 9 titles and he beat Stoner once at Laguna Seca. There I saved you the typing. Starts: Stoner 100 Rossi 101 Podiums: Stoner 59 Rossi 58 Wins Stoner 33 Rossi 26 Win Rate Stoner 33% Rossi 26% Poles: Stoner 34 Rossi 19
Stats are a funny thing. You can grab what proves your point but ignore what disprove it and hope no one notices. MotoGP Year: 2006 CS points: 8 Rossi points: 2 MotoGP Year: 2007 CS points: 1 Rossi points: 3 MotoGP Year: 2008 CS points: 2 Rossi points: 1 MotoGP Year: 2009 CS points: 4 Rossi points: 1 MotoGP Year: 2010 CS points: 4 Rossi points: 3 MotoGP Year: 2011 CS points: 1 Rossi points: 7 MotoGP Year: 2012 CS points: 3 Rossi points: 6 4 to 3 Rossi.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to make motorcycle racing comeback


@kneedragon It's only because Stoner acted like such a putz after the race that he caught so much flak. And uh, Marquez did the exact move in the exact spot to Rossi. So yeah, it has been done to a rider who has many fans. It is just that the rider didn't get all pissy about it. How many American fans of Nicky Hayden have to hear about him getting "lucky" in 2006 to win his championship? Don't hear Nick moaning day and night about no respect. Didn't hear Nick moaning about his crappy clutch all year. Did see Nick get taken out by an idiot move in Estoril by Pedrosa. US fans wanted DP's tiny little head on a toothpick. Nicky played it cool afterwards, put his head down and got the job done. Won his championship. Those same US lynch mob fans I heard in person cheer emphatically for Pedrosa when he put on a clinic at Indy years later. Fans forgive those who deserve it. They chastise those who don't.

JasonLewis: I don't care what any of you hate spewing idiots say or think. I've no reason to like Stoner, but what he did at Ducati makes him a legend among legends among super legends on 2 wheels. No one, and I mean absolutely no one could do what he did...which is defy the laws of physics. His talent for speed is beyond even Marquez, though Marquez is more consistent. He will never get the credit he deserves, because the average "fan" has no f*cking idea what the hell they're talking about. It's embarrasing and extremely disrespectful. Shame on all you hate filled a**holes
Easy there tiger.
