"I understand how bad the condition of his shoulder, because I have experienced more or less the same thing in 2006, so I know exactly how the problem faced by Rossi." "The same with my muscles, but Rossi suffered worse than the problem that afflicts me . Until the condition is 100 percent fit, it is difficult to understand how much power the bike, "said Stoner, who was in third position behind Dani Pedrosa and Marco Simoncelli in pre-season training 2011.
