Rossi Interview Video

Before last weekend’s Monster Energy Grand Prix of France at Le Mans, Ducati MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi sat down for a relaxed camera interview MotoGP announcer Greg Emmett.

With Monster Energy girls looming in a bathtub beside him, the Italian discussed everything from his Ducati to his leg and shoulder injuries to the 2011 MotoGP Championship and his plans afterward.

At Round 4 in Le Mans, VR46 piloted the Ducati Team GP11 to a third-place finish, which was Rossi’s first podium with the new machine.

The nine-time World Champion finished behind Andrea Dovizioso and France race-winner Casey Stoner, both Repsol Honda riders.
