Yamaha tell MCN ‘Rossi riding better than in 2009’

Following Valentino Rossi’s sensational win at Misano motorcyclenews.com journalist Matthew Birt has carried an interview with Kouichi Tsuji, Yamaha Motor CO. MotoGP Group Leader, who believes the Italian rider is performing better than at any other stage in his career.

Tsuji told MCN, “He has been very motivated and he has reached a much higher performance than we expected, even though we still believed he could win. It is not very easy at 35 for him to change his style. We have to appreciate his effort to change and adapt even after so many years and be much more like the modern style of (Marc) Marquez. There is no doubt he is a better rider than he ever was, but it is just the competition is much stronger.”
