Stoner Presents Number One Plate Hot

stoner_and_pedrosaThe Repsol Honda team made their official presentation today and revealed Casey Stoner's number one plate.

The Repsol Honda team hosted a media event black porn today to present the new Honda RC213V.

Stoner and Dani Pedrosa have had a few months off since the end of the 2011 season but it wasn't a quiet time in the life of the defending champion. Stoner and his wife Adriana welcomed a new baby.

Stoner said:

"The off season has been really good, we got to go back home and spend some time with family and friends in Australia over Christmas which was great. Then we came back to Switzerland to get everything in order for the baby's arrival, Adriana's due in just a few weeks and so we've been preparing, as best possible!"

Stoner was the strongest rider in 2011 but the 2012 season has a new factor in the equation that could see some tough competition at the top. The new 1000cc machines are a bit of an unknown at the moment. Stoner and the rest of the MotoGP paddock will get their first taste of the 2012 machines this week during the first official test.

"After such a strong season in 2011, we remain focused and don't expect to be in top form immediately. I am sure Honda have done a fantastic job with the new 1000cc machine over the winter break and I'm really looking forward to getting back on the bike and seeing what we can do, hoping to start strong again. We know there will be a lot of serious competition out there, Ducati have been putting a lot of effort in as have Yamaha so it will be interesting to get out on track and see what everyone's got. However, it's early days and I think we'll have to wait until the race in Qatar before we really know our competitors true pace and the package they have for 2012, but we're ready for it."

The Repsol Honda team will also be running Dani Pedrosa in 2012. Pedrosa could have been a contender for the title last year but a series of injuries kept him from the top.

Dani Pedrosa said:

"It's nice to be back with the team for the first Sepang test. I'm really excited to get on the bike again after the test we did in Valencia in November. Sepang is a good track for testing and we have still many things to discover out about the new bike. It's been a long time since we were last riding and at the first test it's always important to get the feeling back, the first sensations. We will have three long days here to work with the team and HRC and it's necessary to be very focused in order to get good information to move forward for the second test. I guess the main target in this test will be to know the bike and the new Bridgestone tyres."
