Casey Stoner: The Ex­cep­tional Aussie Champ


It is re­ally hard to de­scribe Casey Stoner as the 32-year-old for­mer racer has ex­cep­tional tal­ent to push any ma­chine to its limit and win a race. Stoner started young, quickly mov­ing up the or­der to fi­nally reach Mo­toGP in 2006. He joined a satel­lite Honda team, where he raced the RC211V and took his first pole po­si­tion in his sec­ond ever Mo­toGP race. His best re­sult in 2006 was a sec­ond­place fin­ish in the Turk­ish Grand Prix. Stoner moved to an­other team in 2007, but came back to Honda in 2011 as a fac­tory rider. By now Stoner had a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence and a Mo­toGP ti­tle un­der his belt. He took to the new bike like fish to wa­ter, win­ning his sec­ond ti­tle in 2011. Stoner con­tin­ued with Honda for one more year be­fore re­tir­ing from the sport.
