Lightbulb MotoGP » Injured Stoner may need early op.

Injured Stoner may need early op.

Wednesday, 17th September 2008

Casey Stoner is determined to see out season, despite admitting to injury woes.

Casey Stoner could be forced to miss some of the remaining MotoGP rounds after it was revealed his scaphoid injury could warrant an earlier than planned operation.

Stoner has been carrying the injury since 2003, but aggravated it with falls in Brno and Misano to the point that he admitted he was struggling with the ailment during the most recent round at Indianapolis.

Currently, the reigning champion is most likely to undergo surgery at the end of the season, which could well keep him off duty during at least some of the 2009 pre-season tests.

Indeed, Stoner admits he is not ‘100 per cent' at the moment and is reviewing his condition with every weekend that comes, starting with the next round in Motegi, Japan.

"I'm not 100% but I've got a few weeks to try and improve a few things," he told the official MotoGP website. "I do need an operation, but we'll race for as long as we can and try and do it at the end of the season. I don't think that we will do the tests at the end of this year; maybe Valencia but I'm not sure."

However, Ducati team manager Livio Suppo is not ruling out the possibility of withdrawing him from some of the remaining races this season if he finds he cannot compete with it.

"Let´s say that at the moment, it [the injury] is a problem in the races for Casey. He doesn't speak too much about it, but we will be taking things race-by-race. If the pain is manageable then he will finish the season, otherwise we will try and get something arranged earlier.

"At the moment it seems that he will be able to complete the year, but if he is operated on after Valencia then he will definitely miss the Jerez test – that's not a big issue as he doesn't need a lot of tests in which to understand the bike."

This is why he is losing the title and not because Rossi is better

I think you both misunderstood my point. Remember how Pedrobot said about NH's development skillz?

By the way, I'm looking forward to Pedrobot snagging the 2nd place from Stoner this year...

we may have a contender for 2ndingest rider of all time.

I think Mamola has it still, but both Biaggi and Gibernau where close.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

Pedrosa is an idiot... the RC212v is his gig... it was never Nicky's. Nicky might have wanted to go a diff direction with it, and Pedrosa didn't like it... but that is as far as that went.

He might be an idiot but he will continue to beat Hayden on a regular basis.

Looking forward to next year...

Pedrosa will probably say Dovi can't develop a bike when his retarded ass is the one developing it.

Pedrosa will not be developing the bike, well maybe a little. But that job is now for Shinya Nakano to have.
