Phillip Island MotoGP Results

Casey Stoner (Honda) rode to a convincing victory at his home race in Australia earlier today.   The big news, however, involved a crash by Dani Pedrosa (Honda) on the second lap that ended his championship hopes, and handed this year’s title to Spanish rival Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha).  With second place today, Lorenzo secures the championship with one round remaining.  Finishing third today was Cal Crutchlow (Yamaha).

    Congrats to Lorenzo, he had a nearly flawless season. A worthy World Champion. I felt sorry for Dani..so close yet again. I know a lot of people dislike him, but there is no doubting his ability to ride a GP machine very quickly. And Stoner was masterful in that race. Good young group of riders coming up..not aliens, but very good ….Dovi,Crutchlow,Bautista,Bradl,and maybe Marquez.Then there are the grid fillers er I mean CRTs. Every race I watch, I just have to wonder WHY? They were being lapped with 5 laps to go. Edwards bike won’t even finish a 28 lap race. Guess they give the fans on the opposite side of the course than the prototypes something to look at while they are waiting for the prototypes to come back around.Cant believe Spies is going to be riding one of those dog Ducatis next season.At least Rossi will be back on a Yamaha, then we will see if he really still has it or not, or if 8th to 10th is his slot now in MotoGP.

      There were CRT bikes that finished just over one minute within Stoners race time and within 23 seconds of Rossi and Hayden on factory Ducatis. That’s one minute from a HRC machine and the rider that everyone agrees is untouchable at this circuit.

      Now compare the resources and development that those factory machines have in comparison to the CRT effort.
      Are you still annoyed about them? Which bikes would you have on the grid? Have you ever attended a race?

      The factories have strangled this sport, and the sooner it takes a few leaves from the Moto2 copybook, the better for all of us.

      Because without them there are not enough MotoGP bikes to justify having races for them. The soonner they downspec MotoGP to something that sponsors can afford to support, the sooner the class’ health will improve.

      Besides, back when there were enough MotoGP bikes to have a reasonably full grid, riders were still lapped, just as they are in WSBK and every other premier class.

    With Simoceli gone, Stoner retiring, Rossi past his prime, next year is going to be pretty boring watching two Spaniards win every race.

    It’s sad when World Superbike and Formula 1 are 10 times more exciting than MotoGP.

    Stoner, once again, rode like the best of the best. The slow motion scenes showed how he can ride sideways coming out of the turns at high speed. He will be sorely missed next year…

    Really great to see Casey get the 6 in a row and finish off his last home race with a good win. Now win the next one and really go out in style.
