Valencia Press Conference Quotes

Valentino Rossi

It's the last battle, and it's going to be an interesting one. Eight points isn't a lot, and a good start will be essential. It's going to be hard and a tough race for everybody, and although Valencia is not one of my favourite tracks I hope that I can do well here. There is a lot of pressure on me but it's exciting. We all know that wins are hard to come by consistently at such a high level, but anything can happen and there are a lot of other riders going for a win.

Nicky Hayden

It's a big weekend, and I'm looking forward to it. I got a bad deal last time, but Toni Elias did me a big favour by winning. Sunday's race is simple, I just have to try and win. I know that Valentino has to have a bad weekend, and the last time I checked he wasn't a choker. The Honda riders have a job to do, but any order from me would just be "beat Rossi."

Marco Melandri

I had an awesome weekend here last year, but this weekend I arrive in a different condition, looking for third instead of second in the championship. I just have to focus on my own race and see what happens.

Dani Pedrosa

It's a very important race, as everybody knows. The Spanish fans are pushing for all their riders. I will try to help Nicky, it is still possible that I can do something to help him win the title.

Toni Elias

Portugal was a great moment for me. I won, and soon after I was offered a new contract. I'm not as nervous now, there is a lot less pressure on me than there was two weeks ago. It's in the past now, and I have to go out and enjoy this race. Renewing with Fausto Gresini was important for me, it gives some continuity and I have a good relationship with Marco.
