Not necessarily. Lorenzo was turning laps consistently faster than Pedrosa during qualifying.

Hi Scotty.

Sorry I missed you at the Island this year mate. My old phone crapped itself and i've lost all my contacts so couldn't give you a call.

Was pretty busy at the island this year.

Didn't even manage to catch up with some of my other friends from Tassie that were over there.

Did laps around the outside of the track on friday and saturday , and then pretty much stayed in our seats (Stoner Pavilion) on the sunday.

Took over 4 hours to get back to the airport on monday , was a bit worried at one stage that we may miss our flight.

95 minutes to get from Cowes to San Remo (17 kilometres)

Was a great weekend thats for sure.

Thought that I may not go next year , after having attended for the last 14 years in a row.
But got back to work on tuesday and booked holidays for october next year , just in case.

I spent a few hours at turn 3 on Friday morning, what a privilege it was watching Casey, he owned the track...

How can any mortal do this??? I am certainly going to miss him next year.

They were showing slo-mos of riders going through there during the weekend. Most all of them slid their bikes. Dunno why people talk as if Stoner is the only one to ever have ridden a bike sideways through turns... Sure, cooler to watch than J-Lo, but neither unique nor original.

I am surprised no one on here has mentioned Marq Marquez's throwing the Spanish flag onto the ground in parc ferme. Seems like just the sort of topic that could go on for a couple of pages around here.

With the current crop of riders in the top, that's closer to the truth than you think...

Well let me assure you K0m4, if you were trackside you would realise why i wrote what i did, the only other rider that attacked the corner like Stoner was Pedrosa, and he was nowhere near as committed, but you believe what you want, i suppose that 0.5+ second he had was due to the outright speed of the Honda hey......

I don't have to "believe" anything, I was watching it with my own eyes in 1000 fps. Hell, even Bautista slid through.

Stoner had the pace this weekend, but when people speak the way they do about his slides, I start wondering if they've watched any race before 2011.. Look up a certain McCoy, just as one example of someone who's hella more spectacular.

you are a little late to the party kyns, the topic was committing to turn 3 at Phillip Island, not sliding the bike in general..

But great pics, all these guys are superstars. It is a pity that when 1 rider is praised, others seem to feel threatened that their favourite rider wasn't mentioned and get all defensive.....

Although i think Stoner is a very special rider, one we are not likely to see the likes of again for a long time, i'm not one eyed, here is a shot of Rossi and Crutchlow exiting Southern Loop on the way to Turn 3
