At Valentino Rossi’s farewell party at the Valencia MotoGP race at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, last weekend, almost all of The Doctor’s rivals were present.
From Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner, Max Biaggi to Dani Pedrosa. All give appreciation for the long career of a Valentino Rossi.
“For me, he is a clear reference and a very strong rival, from him I learned a lot,” said Dani Pedrosa.
However, there is one rival figure of Valentino Rossi who does not appear in the Valencia MotoGP. Even though he is the main racer in the 2021 MotoGP event.
That figure is Marc Marquez . The Honda rider was forced to stay in his hometown of Cervera after experiencing physical problems.
Unfortunately, of course, fate did not allow Valentino Rossi to meet Marc Marquez in his last race, MotoGP Valencia.
It would be interesting if Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez met in the Valencia MotoGP race. Will there be a handshake or simply congratulations from Marquez for Rossi?
What is certain is that on one occasion, Marc Marquez said that his relationship with Valentino Rossi had not improved.
“Everyone knows our relationship is not good,” Marc Marquez recently admitted.
Valentino Rossi has also confessed that he does not know whether his relationship with Marc Marquez can improve. “I don’t know, I don’t know,” Rossi said.
Leaked Test Driver, Valentino Rossi Will Try Ducati MotoGP Motorcycles
A surprising comment was made by a Ducati test rider at the MotoGP event, Michele Pirro.
The Italian racer shared that Valentino Rossi, who had just retired, was willing to try the latest Ducati Desmosedici motorcycle.
The above was revealed when Michele Pirro made an upload on Instagram by congratulating Valentino Rossi who had just retired.
In the caption, Pirro said, he asked Valentino Rossi to try the Ducati Desmosedici motorbike and the legend accepted.
“Sharing the track with a motorcycle racing GOAT is a great privilege,” said Pirro.
Ever Ride a Ducati Motorcycle
Valentino Rossi is recorded to have raced in MotoGP using a Ducati Desmosedici motorbike. Precisely in the 2011 and 2012 seasons.
At that time, Valentino Rossi was very difficult and finally returned to Yamaha in the 2013 season. Pirro was curious to know the response of a nine-time world champion about the development of Ducati motorcycles.
Because at this time, the Ducati Desmosedici is one of the competitive motorbikes in the MotoGP event. The 2021 season, Ducati riders even tasted seven victories.
The details are Pecco Bagnaia’s four wins, two Jack Miller wins, and Jorge Martin’s first podium.
