Then there was the time the Inn keeper placed a pea under Stoner's mattress.

Krop, any truth to the rumors Adriana will be making a wild card appearance later this year? I think the plan was for her to be in Bradl's box?

Can you imagine anyone leaning the current Ducat over this far?!?!?



Marquez hangs off even more.

Compare to the mighty Mick's old school style.

Doohan certainly had a very unique hanging-off style. It's unmistakable.

A lot of old racers had that style. Sort of hanging off, but getting upright with square shoulders to the apex. Most of the moderns use the leading inside shoulder style. They lean much further off the saddle, and lead into the apex with their inside shoulder up near the front axle!

At least I see it that way.

think your putting waaaayyy to much thought into what you believe is Stoner's motivations. I doubt Mark even entered into it.
Racing all season with an aggressive 20 year old team mate that may be able to keep your pace, could factor into your decision making process.

Stoner is retiring relatively healthy with a beautiful wife and a young child.
That seems like a wise move.
