Casey Stoner

I was having a look at the BBC website a few minutes ago and decided to have a look at the news for MotoGP, with the French round happening this weekend.

What I hadn't expected was to see that Casey had called a quick press conferance this afternoon and he has announced that he is to retire at the end of the season.

Apparently he has had enough, the changes over the last few years means that he is no longer enjoying the sport.

Have to say that there is no way I would have guessed that - now wait for the cat fight to get his seat for 2013!

Heard it on the radio tonight - can't say I'm surprised - years away from home (for an Aussie), world champion on more than one machine, the only man ever capable of riding the Desmosedici, a new kiddie and family life, and a sharp reminder at the back end of last season what the risks are.

I for one hope he goes out as champion - he might not be the most charismatic man in the paddock, but he's awesome on the bike

Surely thats the door of opportunity opening for Marquez! Hope they conside Cal!

Cant see Honda going back to Dovi, dont think Rossi will be flavour of the month (but you never know). Seem to remember Hayden did not enjoy his time there but maybe ..

Hope he goes with a title. Been a top rider.

Not directly. The rookie rule forbids a rookie going direct into a factory team.
