Races and personal life

I am great at separating my personal life from racing. When I’m on the circuit, it’s time to race and when I’m off it, I want to enjoy life

On RCV

I have a better time with the 1000, it’s got more spark and power. It requires more skill to take it on small tracks, especially in short races

His greatest achievement

To be honest, the thing I’ve been most proud of over the years is having had my daughter. But with regard to sport, I think the best moment was when I won my second World Championship title

History of motorcycle racing

Born into a bike-loving family, since the time he was a child he displayed extraordinary passion and talent. When he was only three years old he first got on a bike. At four, he competed in the Hatchers trial circuit, and at six, he won his first Australian title. Between the ages of six and 14, Stoner competed in races throughout Australia. He won more than 100 state titles on flat tracks.

After this phase, he moved to England where, thanks to his talent and a bit of luck, he quickly found a sponsor and transitioned to asphalt tracks. He participated in two CEV events where he impressed Alberto Puig, who offered him a spot on his team the next year. In 2001 he raced as a guest at the World Championship and went on to win it completely in 2002 in 250cc.

After going down to 125cc for two years, he returned to the intermediate class and in 2006 he made his MotoGP debut. In 2007 he got married and had an excellent season, winning his first World Championship on the back of a Ducati. In 2011, he realized his dream by joining the Repsol Honda Team, emulating his idol, Mick Doohan. He won the MotoGP world championship with a Honda RC212V and in 2012, after becoming a father, he competed again for the title. After a few injuries, he decided to retire as a rider. He was named a MotoGP Legend in 2013.
