Andrea Dovizioso went for a ride at Misano this weekend, to see how the WSBK riders were doing. And he wasn’t disappointed… First of all, he wasn’t the only one there. Valentino Rossi, Max Biaggi, Fabio Di Giannantonio, a non-exhaustive list, were thus spotted on the starting grid or on the edge of the track. Still, Dovi has analyzed the style of the three favorites for the title in a discipline where he will not convert…
Andrea Dovizioso took advantage of its proximity to the route of Misano and the good weather that reigned there to go see the WSBK pilots who were playing there. ” I live near Misano and came here with friends on our motorbikes “, revealed the RNF Yamaha rider in MotoGP. ” I love all types of motorcycle racing. Here I cross my fingers for Yamaha, but also for my friend Michael Rinaldi “.
And what do you think Dovizioso of the three best Superbike riders of the moment? On speed weekhe answers : ” Álvaro Bautista is incredibly strong, I know him well “recalls the Italian. ” Not only is he quick, but he keeps up with things and handles runs well. Because he weighs so little, his motorcycle accelerates enormously. It puts relatively little stress on the rear tyre, which is why it remains very solid at the end of the race. It’s a challenge for other pilots “.
Andrea Dovizioso and his future: “ I will probably enjoy my life”
Then he arrives at the Turk, a worthy companion since he will soon be trying out the M1: ” Toprak Razgatlioglu is a bit crazy. From the outside, it’s hard to understand how he does it. His riding style is unique and very different “laughs the pilot of 36 year. ” He brakes so late, much later than Rea, who is also excellent in braking. Watching him is just fun because he keeps trying and doesn’t give up. He is always very aggressive in the last corner “.
It ends on Rea : “ Johnny, on the other hand, is just super good. His dedication is impressive. He always gives his all », rents Dovizioso. ” He doesn’t have the speed of Álvaro at the moment, but he is aiming for the championship and that mentality will help him. I can’t wait for the season finale “.
Time to Dovizioso in MotoGP is coming to an end. Did this visit give him ideas for retraining? ” I do not think so. I’ve been riding at world championship level for 20 years and it’s not Superbike or MotoGP world championships. It all depends on when you decide on a new project said the 2004 125cc world champion. I’m probably going to enjoy my life, do motocross and whatever else I have in mind “.
