Rossi assesses title rivals

Second in the World Championship and on top form, Valentino Rossi has also heaped praise upon his rivals this season, including the two riders he shared an all-Italian podium with at the A-Style Grand Prix of Japan.

"We are three Italian riders in the premier class; myself, Marco Melandri and Loris Capirossi, and if we happen to be the three fastest riders, then perfect. Capirossi has pleasantly surprised me this year, having previously been just a strong rival he is now really consistent, and if it hadn't have been for the accident in Barcelona he would be in with a better chance of winning the World Title this season," commented the Italian in an exclusive video.
