Dennis Noyes talks with Casey Stoner...

I liked the interviewed very much as it felt real and with some good points to boot but this little tidbit capture my attention more than the other questions, I can't quiet put my finger on what, exactely, CS was trying to say though... can you?

SpeedTV: What is the most annoying question you keep getting asked?

Why did you crash so much last year? I know the reason and I think for a lot of people it should be obvious what the reason is. The way we have been able to step it up this year without the crashes. There were too many times that the bike would change from one session to the next or from qualifying to the race and it was nothing that the team was doing. Other people were playing games. I am not going to say who but it has been obvious over the years how certain companies have played with their riders. ‘We want you to win, yep, but we don´t want you to win,’ and it is obvious that that has happened. It wasn’t obvious to me last year. Every time I crashed I was in the gravel trap scratching my head and saying ‘what the heck is happening here, I’m losing the front for no reason’. I get off the brakes, just touch the gas, I was already picking the bike up. It all started with the crash in Barcelona, I went in there the same as I had in practice and it was gone. Mugello, that was a bit more my fault, but the other crashes, starting with Barcelona -- I did not know what to do, I did not know why I was crashing and why it was my fault.

Honda establishing orders? So is that Elias' excuse aside from just riding too far on the edge?
