Rossi notices tiredness after inactivity

With a picture of Excalibur on the front of his Yamaha M1 and on his helmet, Valentino Rossi started strong today in the preparation for his duel to reclaim his MotoGP crown in 2007. Third on the timesheets, only Suzuki's John Hopkins and Chris Vermeulen went round the Sepang Circuit faster than the Italian.

"After a while away from the bike, getting back into the swing of things is a difficult thing, and to tell the truth I noticed a bit of tiredness. We are very motivated for "revenge" this year after defeat in 2006. We will try to be in peak condition in time for the first race, and we will be trying above all to start the season better than last year.
