Tavullia rider and VR46 Academy boss Valentino Rossi: “We want to raise the bar, we have four very strong riders but we are not stopping”

Appetite comes with eating for Valentino Rossi, who after Pecco Bagnaia’s triumph in Valencia is already looking ahead to the next few years, hoping to open a cycle between the Academy and the VR46 team: “At the moment we would like to raise the level of the Academy in many respects, focusing on the historic group since we have a lot of very strong riders.”

In addition to Bagnaia, Bezzecchi has also established himself by winning the best rookie of the year award.Valentino Rossi is also betting on him, as well as his brother Luca Marini, for next season. “Luca and Marco will be very strong, we have to understand what bike we will have and we will try it already on Tuesday. They have great potential, Luca is growing step by step, but he is always very solid. Bez has shown some great races and performances and also made a podium. We had fun this year, but we are ready for next year.”

Valentino’s dream is to open a cycle with VR46 riders, “We have four in MotoGP, then there is Vietti who started well. We want to try to give our best for them, even with Migno, hoping to find him a bike for next year. Of new young people nothing yet, we have gotten bigger and it is better to help our own. Uccio was great,” he continued to Sky, “He did a great job, it was not easy to organize the team so well in the first year. Having a MotoGP team is a big responsibility, there are so many people working, at the end they make me work. We had a good time.”
