Valentino Rossi: My toughest rival is Jorge!

Yep, it’s true. Valentino Rossi has said that Lorenzo is a tougher rival than Marc Marquez, Casey Stoner or Max Biaggi.


Answering an interview question for American publication Cycle World, the nine-times world champion gave the straightest possible answer to a pretty straight question.

The interview asked Rossi: Max Biaggi, Casey Stoner, Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo: Who has been your toughest rival?

And Valentino answered: “Jorge. He is in an incredible physical and mental shape. When he is so strong, and when he finds the perfect conditions, he is unbeatable. He has improved a lot. He is more focused than before. He is fast and able to find quickly the best setup of the bike.”
