Casey Stoner - Top Bloke

There seems to be sections of the the motorcycling crowd who seem to have a dislike for Casey Stoner and there doesn't really seem to be any justification for it, well unless your a Rossi fan and you dislike everyone who beats Rossi.


Anyways just thought I'd post a link or two showing how the young lad has progressed and made it to the top. Natural talent and lots of hard work.

Stoner seems to get a bit of stick for some reason, and I have to agree with Rossi fans bit.

But Casey has got class, look at all the riders that have tried to race the Ducati and failed..

Hi MM.

I wish it would be a bit closer racing but I think its a two horse race at the moment not unless Lorenzo picks up the pace..


PS Sorry Evs7 got sidetrack there of the topic :cheers: ..

I definitely don't have a problem with Casey Stoner's natural ability. It's stupendous and he does seem to be the only rider who gels with the Ducati...


However, he doesn't seem to have much of a personality and this is where Rossi triumphs in the popularity stakes. He seems to be from the same mold as Pedrosa, a bit mardy when things aren't going his way and might crack the occasional smile if they are...


For this reason the likes of Rossi, Lorenzo, Edwards, for example are always going to be more popular with the punters...

Stoner is like a machine - his riding is unbelievable . This doesn't necessarily make the most fun racing to watch however - the most exciting race by far last year was the middle part of Laguna Seca with Rossi and Stoner elbow to elbow for a while.


As for his personality, Stoner has the charisma of a wooden spoon. Maybe he'll warm up a bit with age - the pressure on him is incredible and I'm sure I wouldn't handle it perfectly either. On the other hand, Pedrosa makes Stoner look like Austin Powers. :D

The other interesting story or bit of gossip about Stoner is .. (but wrong in my view)

On eurosport for the Moto GP..

Mr Ryder said.. "Well Rosssi said that Stoner was the best 1 lapper out there"...What!!..Well thats poo..

Did Stoner not finish runner up last year.. and in 2007 did Stoner not win the championship by 120+ points, but each race was more than 1 lap or did I watch something else all year..

But thousands will believe it I'm sure..

I think skoter that was just a statement anbout qualifying and not a blight on stners racing as such.


Stoner was found lacking a little last year only when under pressure, will see if he has got over that this year...hopefully!
