I wonder what exactly Stoner meant when the GP has changed and made him lose his passion.....I know Pedrosa and Lorenzo were saying that he just wanted to race and not deal with all of the interviews and stuff. I could see how the PR stuff could get tiring but at the world level and riding for a factory team what else could you really expect?
He made the right choice though, end on a great note and no reason to feel imprisoned in a racing career because you lost the passion for it. I wonder if he would open his own racing school?
I believe it was to do with the bike becoming standardized and more like factory bikes. A more consumer friendly sorry when you can go a buy a very similar road bike.
Also the bureaucracy behind the scenes. The aussie moto mags touched on it.
I still get those 'oh shit' moments.... The day I don't, is the day I stop riding.
