Giacomo Agostini: 'Casey Stoner is incredible, but we must not forget Rossi...'


Agostini says Stoner is an incredible rider, but at the same time it would be foolish to write off Rossi!

According to MCN, multi-time motorcycle GP racing world champ, Giacomo Agostini is impressed with Stoner's performance this year. Speaking to MCN, Agostini says, 'Casey has surprised everyone because he is so precise. I remember when he crashed many times, but now he is so determined. He is incredible. Casey is a fantastic rider. Everybody says he has a good motorcycle and good tyres, but you need the rider too and Casey is very good. I’ve watched him and he is very consistent and very fast. He is incredible because it not easy to beat Valentino Rossi!'


2007 has been Casey Stoner's year. We don't think anyone can stop him from winning the world championship this year...

But Agostini also cautions those who're ready to write off Rossi. He says, 'We can’t forget Valentino Rossi. He is a multi-time world champion and we must remember that. When Valentino has the package he can still win, no problem.'

In the meanwhile, MotoGP teams are now preparing for the next race, which will take place at the Misano circuit in Italy. Stoner says, 'Misano will be a strange race because nobody really knows what it will be like to race a MotoGP bike around there. The track isn't too bad but I feel it needs to be improved because it's very bumpy, so it's going to be pretty loose on these bikes. We'll just have to wait and see how it goes – it could be good for us. I'm already very happy with the season, so I don't feel any more pressure.'
