2011 MotoGP Rider Talk
Casey Stoner was unstoppable at Round 4 of the 2011 MotoGP Championship in Le Mans, France, Sunday afternoon.
After mid-race battle with Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa, the Australian Stoner got out front and began distancing himself from the field, never to be challenged again.
MotoGP Round 1
MotoGP fans have sat silent for 133 days since Valencia wrapped up the 2010 Championship. But in 22 intense laps, that wait has already transformed into the first points being awarded after the season-opener at Losail International Circuit Sunday.
Bautista Broken Leg
It was assumed that Rizla Suzuki would not be able to replace the injured Alvaro Bautista for the opening round of the 2011 MotoGP Championship, and on Saturday the team confirmed this assumption. But Rizla will be present at round 2 in Jerez.
The 17-rider MotoGP grid will be lacking its only Suzuki rider this weekend at the Losail International Circuit, Qatar.
Rizla Suzuki GSV-R’s sole rider, Alvaro Bautista, broke his left femur after a high-side at Turn 15. This immediately ended the Spaniard’s participation in Sunday’s opening round of the 2011 MotoGP Championship.
