Valentino rossi he is preparing his 2021 season in the best way. Despite having a long vacation, the Italian is eager to peel the title of MotoGP and get his tenth world title. Together with the pilots that make up the talent academy, which Rossi himself directs, he runs a strict training program at his ranch in Tavullia.
The Italian gave an interview by videoconference before one of his sponsors. In this Thursday’s note, Rossi commented that in case he ends his activity at the academy one day, he will miss his pilots. He also talked about his idols and how he carries out his activity in MotoGP at the age of 41, an unusual age for the category.
‘Il dottore’ commented that the training that helps him the most to face each season is MotoCross. “It helps a lot because you ride with little grip, and that’s how you learn to control the bike well. Also to control the body and balance yourself when sliding. It is a very important training for the World Cup, “he said. In addition, he confirmed that his top idol is Kevin Schwantz, 1993 champion.
On the other hand, ‘Vale’ assured that another fundamental part for its preparation is its Ranch in Tavullia. “There I have grown as a pilot and person. Being with the youngsters gets you going, training at this level with all the World Championship riders, who are great, makes you learn a lot. It started as a game and has grown into something very beautiful. I didn’t think I would have so much fun following the young drivers. I like very much. It is true that it is a school, but we are always together, we are friends and we have dinner together. So it’s a family too, ”Rossi said.
To close, the multi-champion joked about the performance of the young drivers. In addition, he recalled the greatest joy of recent years. «Do the students outperform the teacher? Sometimes yes. Sometimes it bothers me Luca (Marini, his brother) is going faster than me lately at the Ranch. The greatest achievement of the Academy is Luca’s first victory in Malaysia in 2018, ”said the idol.
