Let’s face it, none of the current riders can challenge Marc Marquez at this point. Seemingly, he beats the likes of Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa with ease. Every week. Now 10 for 10 this year, Marquez looks set to break more records in his second year in the premier class.
Multi-time MotoGP champ Casey Stoner was also considered an “alien among aliens” … at least, at times. He won races and took pole on a Ducati that was so difficult to ride it literally destroyed the career of somewho tried to ride it (Marco Melandri comes to mind immediately). Other MotoGP riders described Stoner’s skills as “other worldly” (Rossi more than once saying Stoner rode “like a god”). Nicky Hayden, who would know, said Stoner could do things on a motorcycle no one else could do.
Tell us what you think below. Take Casey Stoner in his prime, healthy and motivated, and have him race Marc Marquez in his current form, on equal equipment. Who wins and why?
