Huge Valentino Rossi interview from 2013

Valentino Rossi Interview

Valentino Rossi Interview

Here is a great Valentino Rossi video from 2013. Made by MCN, the video took place just before Valentio Rossi was about to start his 18th season in motorcycle Grand Prix racing.

Valentino touches on issues such as maintaining his passion for motorcycle racing, his reaction to Casey Stoner’s retirement, and how he can only really live a normal life without press intrusion in his home-town of Tavullia.

Also Valentino Rossi seems to be wearing an amazing T-Shirt with the slogan ‘Nurses do it Better’ on it….kind of appropriate for ‘The Doctor’. Don’t worry, we have tracked them down and you can get one HERE.

If you have read Valentino Rossi’s autobiography ‘What If Had Never Tried It‘ then you will know that when Rossi was young he used to race ‘Ape’s’ (Italian 3 wheeled vans) around his home-town of Tavullia…..probably much to the displeasure of the residents. This is before we was a local hero and had speed limits in the town based on his racing number 46.

Here is some great old footage of YouTube of Valentino and his friends messing around in these vehicles, before jumping on to mopeds and bikes and pulling wheelies in the town.

Watch the video below.

Watch Colin Edwards interview Valentino Rossi for BT Sport.

Colin Edwards was Valentino Rossi’s team-mate at Yamaha for a number of years, and both riders always got on during their time at Yamaha and they have remained good friends….something that won’t be happening between Valentino and Lorenzo πŸ˜‰

The rapport that both the riders have makes for a great interview, and Edwards definitly has a future job as a full-time pitlane pundit if this is anything to go by.

The interview was conducted for BT Sport, and they discuss Rossi’s strained relationship with Jorge Lorenzo and how it contributed to his decision to make the ill-fated move to Ducati, amongst other things.
