He mentions Ducati being clever with the electronics on the bike he rode two years ago, I wonder how that compares to the GP9 of today?

How is it that HRC has got Doohan, Gardners, and Spencers balls all locked away. I'm sick of seeing articles like this.

Take special note of page 4 :

On the subject of why only Stoner is incredibly fast and the dominant race winner on the often wayward Ducati, Gardner said, "Casey is scary fast, scarily good, and if you put him on a bike that really works, with the right people around him he would be even better.

"He's an exceptional talent and he has made Ducati look good. If anyone can beat Valentino it is Casey and that is why I would love top see him on a bike that offers more feel than the Ducati. The Ducati is a good bike but if he was on something better with more feel then you would not see the back of Casey; he would be gone.

"Being fast on the Ducati is an exclusive club, Casey has shown that. I think even Rossi and Lorenzo would
struggle on the Ducati
because Casey comes from dirt track racing since he was five years old. Riding difficult bikes in difficult conditions is why he is elevated to another level on the Ducati.

"Two years ago I rode Casey's Ducati in a brief test and it is a very strange bike to ride. Anyone who has ridden it says the same thing -- there is a lack of feel and mechanical grip so it takes a very special talent to ride that bike fast and Casey is an exceptional talent.

"So that's why I would love to see him on a bike with more feel and feedback to the rider. Ducati are very clever with the electronics and that covers a lot of the problems with that bike, I could see that even after four laps on it."

This is similar to what I have been saying for a while. Right now, a healthy Casey is at least Rossis equal and is most likely faster. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

I know you reckon Gardner has Aussie bias, but it still all makes sense . To me anyway. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

I imagine its still the same Rog. You said it correctly though it took 2 years of riders and teams saying it ..... yes the Ducati has "electronics", but Stoner does not use it much. How many times do you need to have other guys saying this [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

c'mon Talps.... where are you.
Surely you have statistics on something to prove Gardner knows nothing, and Stoner really is nowhere.

I wouldnt say nowhere....but as for him saying rossi would struggle on the duc, i disagree. Rossi can ride anything, and develop a bike like no other. He would make the duc rideable just like he did w/ the yamaha
