Stoner Talks MotoGP Tests & Life (Video)

2012 MotoGP Video

Looking for an insight into Repsol Honda’s Casey Stoner, the reigning MotoGP Champion?

The latest video from Honda Racing Europe provides not only a look into Stoner’s performance at the first official MotoGP test at Sepang earlier this month, but also a look into his personal lifestyle.

One such talk in the attached video was marriage and the birth of his daughter, Alessandra, who was born Feb. 16, the same date that Stoner’s rival Valentino Rossi was born.

"They also say when your married you get slower, so when I got married I won my first world championship, and when I found out we were having a baby I won my second," Stoner says in the video.

The Honda RC213V pilot will be back at Sepang this Tuesday for the second official MotoGP testing session, which runs Feb. 28 through March 1.
