Careful Casey – We don’t need a Biaggi Replacement

March 30, 2007 at 1:44 pm 2 comments

Following the Jerez MotoGP, Aussie young gun Casey Stoner, has come out firing against what he sees as irresponsible riding. It has to do with the battle in the early and middle part of the race between himself on the Ducati and Marco Melandri and Carlos Checa.

 Now admittedly I wold feel somewhat nervous if I was racing closely with Carlos ‘The Chucker’ Checa, but I think Stoner needs to take a deep breath and realise that everyone out on the track, regardless of who they are or what they are riding, is out there to win.

His little rant to the media this week, reminded me of another whinger in the MotoGP paddock…Max Biaggi. Undoubtably Max can ride a bike and fast, just not as fast as long time nemesis Valentino Rossi. When he raced in the MotoGP, he would 0ften whinge about the fact that everyone was out to beat him…from the other racers to even the Honda factory whom he rode for.

History will show Max just couldn’t compete with Rossi at his (Rossi’s) level and like Sete Gibernau after him, was totally out psyhced by Valentino.

So Casey, look back to see what you could become if you keep going down the path of blaming others for your inability to win races. Truth be known you should have qualified better. Also you had a bad start. Work on these things and you will be upfront and not dicing it with the 2nd tier riders.

    Wow, its easy to give advice like that when you’re not out there risking your life isn’t it? Casey has a beautiful wife too, maybe you also have an opinion on workplace safety because whatever you work for isn’t work getting seriously hurt.

    Thanks for the comment ‘Motorbike Rider”. I think you missed my point. I am a Stoner fan. Biaggi was a whinger and I would hate to see the young fella be thought of in the same way. His efforts so far have proven his talent (as I write this he is almost assured of the championship).
    The general rule on the track is that if you want to overtake it is your responsibilty to ensure it will stick and be ‘safe’. Casey should not have put himself in that position by qualifying and starting better.
    As for risking his life…well he accepts the fact that racing is dangerous, just like I do when I go out on the track.

Chuck Norris Facts

Fact # 73 Chuck Norris was the fourth Wise man. He brought baby Jesus the gift of "beard". Jesus wore it proudly to his dying day. The other Wise men, jealous of Jesus' obvious gift favouritism, used their combined influence to have Chuck omitted from the Bible. Shortly after all three died of roundhouse kick related deaths.
