Not dead, but shall be racing for the last time this weekend. I for one shall miss his all out racing style. I know he wasn't always liked by some, but he spoke his mind and done the job put before him. Beating Rossi and such on regular basis.

Hope he signs off with a race win. Though I agree with the some, he may return for a wild card race at Philip Island at some point in the future8)

Tree Trunks, I'm all jacked up because of you. Look at my jacked up face!

... and the only one to have been able to ride the Ducati to victory (including WC in 2007) - looking at Rossi's results with the same Ducati, that was quite an achievement 8)
Just watching the Valencia qualifying now :)

I'd put him on par with Rossi. His constant sideways drifting of the Ducati was great to watch. Moto GP is going to miss him a lot more than anticipated next season.

+1.

Nobody realized just what he was managing to do on those Ducatis and why he had a few falls. Rossi going to Ducati really opened everyone's eyes to just what an incredible talent Stoner is. Off the bike he's no worse than most and in true Aussie style he speaks his mind. He's been my favourite rider on the grid for some time.

One less top tier rider will be a real loss to a sport already in decline.

Can people please stop ignoring forum convention, especially when it comes to participants in a relatively dangerous form of motorsport.:evil:

I think I'm fighting a losing battle on this, just perhaps stop it because it's an uninformative title to a thread anyway?

I agree. Watching Rossi on the Ducati made realise that he is only a great rider when the bike is a peach, and by no means am I knocking Rossi's achievements. But if you are looking for a rider that can bring any bike home challenging for a win. Stoner is your man. If it wasn't for the illness he suffered and had Ducati listened to him, he would have bagged more titles.

Yes Rossi is only a great rider when the bike's a peach, like y'know back in 2003ish when he switched to that "peach" of a Yamaha :roll:

Stoner's a great rider no question and I love him. But Rossi is one of the greatest of all time if not THE greatest of all time (only one who could be considered greater would be Ago).

Also, besides the championship that Stoner won for Ducati, his results on the Ducati were not vastly different than Rossi's. Someone at PH on biker banter posted a chart comparing them, will try to repost it here

That's the whole point BP. By calling Rossi one of the all time greats and then saying Stoners performances where the same is a massive compliment to Stoner!!! And remember when Rossi was at his peak he had Michelin fly in tires on race day specifically developed for him based on how they had been performing Friday etc etc... That sort of thing makes it so hard to judge the true talent of someone.

EDIT: Stoner Ducati average finish 3rd, Rossi 6th :roll:.
