Casey Stoner vs Marc Marquez

Excellent article and worth a read.

Casey the only one who was willing to ride the ducati to it's limits to win.
No one else was willing too, didnt suit their style imo.

Even though ducati threw more money at that bike when rossi was on it to win a championship.

Gary McCoy was the king of sliding on the 500's - he spent more time with the bike out of line and with the rear trying to overtake the front than anyone I have ever seen. Amazing to watch, if not perhaps the fastest.

I don't usually comment on the "who is better" stuff for one I don't have the analytical capability to dissect a question that has way too many variables to answer unless you want to look at numbers only and call it a day and two I do not follow or favor any particular rider. On the psychological side of things I would give it MM and I would give him a nod on the physiological side as well. That battle at laguna between VR and Stoner left a lasting impression on me with regard to Stoners fragility. As close as that race was that day, Stoner was visually abused. I think if it came to banging elbows and aggressive riding that Stoner would not fair as well as MM. Stoner seemed to let a lot of things bother him and linger and MM is one of those guys who can make that a problem for sure. Both huge talents.
Thanks from Calderara di Reno and able duc

MM is definately the far more aggressive rider, to the point rossi is complaining.
I find the irony in it quite funny, he finds someone who isnt afraid to get abit
dirty on the track and suddenly its " marquez is dangerous, hes going to kill somebody". But going back to your opinion you do have a point. His aggression might be a deciding factor. Would be awesome to find out.
