Why does he always get called the nine times, only 7 big ones, do you refer to lorenzo as 4 times world champ? pedrosa as 3 times and biaggi as six?

that movie has been taken down by dorna afew times, i think someone uploaded it again maybe under the name " a heroes story" to make it harder for dorna to find & remove, it was on free to air TV so why not the net ?? no advertising money i suppose ??

its not going to be the same without stoner, went to phillip island this year & it was epic !!!

will still be interesting next year though, i cant wait for it to all kick off again !! :)

I'm definitely excited to see Marquez race in the GP class, though I'm not counting ducks before they hatch - he still doesn't have the experience everyone else does. I think his first year will be a lot of learning, but he definitely has champion written all over him for the future.

I wouldn't count Rossi out though. You can definitely argue who is better - Rossi or Stoner. Rossi holds more titles, but Stoner made the Duc work for a title. My thoughts are this: Rossi is dominating pretty much every other racing event he participates in outside of MotoGP (Supermoto, Monza rally, ect). He definitely knows how to race and win, so I have a feeling when he jumps back on the Yamaha at Qatar, he's going to be giving the top dogs a real run for their money.


....of course I could be completely wrong

I'm not driving fast - I'm flying low

I see your point he won 6 MOTOGP titles , 1 500 CC title , 1 250CC title , 1 125CC title they are all considered World Championships I do not know or understand why the other racers and their titles are not classified in the same manner without any doubt Dorna treats Vale different than the other racers in the paddock

Stoner, will be missed. Amazing rider, and I'm sure he will succeed in his future endeavors.

I'm looking forward to next season. Would like to see if Pol's big brother will make the learning curve tough for, Marquez.

I don't know about that.....Marquez is still on a factory honda and it would take a whole lot of errors for him to fall back into 13th place or higher considering his first test results on the honda was just shy of a second under Pedrosa's posted fastest time.

Lol yeah cause winning any championship is just nothing. The dude has won 9 and deserves that respect, but Stoner is a badass and to me is what a true rider looks like, he hates all the electronics, and misses just the racing that he got into when he was a kid. When people put all they had and went for it. There are so many rules and BS things racers have to do. I loved watching Moto2 this year, those guys hauled ass and only worried after the race.
