Valentino rossi will give an extraordinary press conference this Thursday at 4:15 pm. The Italian rider, together with the company Dorna, organizer of the World Cup Moto GP, will reveal his future plans to the media and the rumor that he will announce his retirement is gaining momentum.
There are only two options: retire at 42 or continue one more year with his team, the VR46. Everything seems to indicate that Rossi will opt for the first and will put an end to a legendary career for good.
Currently, it is the rider with the most podiums (235) in the history of the Motorcycle World Championship, and in addition to having achieved the highest number of victories (89), podiums (199) and fastest laps (76) in MotoGP.
Rossi has been at his best competitive level for years and has seen how the new generation surpasses him. ´Il Dottore´ had not been entirely happy in this first half of the season. “The level in MotoGP is now very high and the riders are all close. I hope more from now on and I will do everything possible to achieve it ”, he explains ahead of the Mugello GP.
The rumor of his retirement is becoming less rumor and more reality, which is why Valentino Rossi will probably announce this afternoon that this will be his last season on a motorcycle.
