MotoGP 2016: Valentino Rossi

Today I am sticking with riders in my MotoGP 2016 build up as I focus on Valentino Rossi.

Rossi had a good year in 2015, winning the opening round in Qatar which was used to mount a title challenge throughout the year. However, the Italian ultimately fell short by five points, losing out to his teammate for the title.

The year was also notable for the clash between Rossi and Marquez at the Malaysian Grand Prix which contributed in the Italian being unable to clinch the title.

This is in part what makes Rossi one to watch in 2016, will he still have an issue with Marquez? Or has he now moved on. The year will also be interesting to see if Rossi is a title contender once again or whether 2015 was his final chance at clinching an eighth premier class title.
