Great article!! Did you catch what Randy Mamola said about Stoner!

The more manufacturers rely on computer controls, the more it harms the guys like Hayden and Rossi, who are regarded as the purest racers. “Futuristic things like traction control, it's cutting down the role of the talent,” says Randy Mamola, the ex-racer and now a television commentator. “If you put [Stoner] on Nicky's bike, he wouldn't have won any races. I guarantee that.”

i cant say "poor guy" cause well, id love to have the chance to crash out of a motogp race...crazy as that sounds. he will be allright. sometimes things click and sometimes they dont. right now they are not. thats all.

funny part though

Before he could react it was, as he would later say, “sky, gravel, sky, gravel, sky, gravel.”
in another interview nicky was talking about how he chose the number 69. it was the number his dad had used for some kind of dirt racing...he said the reason his dad had used it was because after a "sky, dirt, sky, dirt" crash you get a bit dizzy, and if alot of bikes crash with you, its all a jumble anyways as you look for the bike with your number plate to get back going. his dad had picked the number 69 because it looks the same upside down, and its easier to find that way...haha.

I thought he finally moved out of the apartment above the parents garage?

Even with his millions, I guess there's nothing like mommas home cooking.
