Rossi eyeing perfect end to perfect season

Valentino Rossi heads into the 2009 MotoGP season finale at Valencia eager to bring his title-winning season to an ideal conclusion
With the title already in the bag, Valentino Rossi heads to the final round of the 2009 MotoGP season at Valencia eager to bring his year to a perfect close.

Having wrapped up victory with a run to third position last time out in Malaysia, Rossi has avoided taking the title fight down to the wire around a circuit that hasn't been so kind to him in the past.

Indeed, although he has been a winner at the Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo – most recently in 2004 -, Rossi admits he hasn't enjoyed the best of fortunes in Spain.

Nonetheless, with no title to fight for this time around, Rossi is confident that, with the pressure off, he can go out and enjoy himself this year.

"I am very happy to be going to the final race with the championship won and the pressure off, now we can just enjoy ourselves," the Fiat Yamaha rider said. "It's been a fantastic year and now we just have one more weekend before we start work for 2010.

“Valencia hasn't been a great track for me in the past and I've had some bad times there, but at the moment we're in great shape and our bike is working well everywhere we go, so I hope it will be the same at Valencia.

“It's a great place to finish and the atmosphere is amazing, so we will just do our best and hope for another good race to end off a great season. On Monday we will start working on the new M1 and I'm very excited to try it!"

Christ on a bike. The first post is from a Stoner fan trying to knock Rossis championship success. It seems a thing with both sicknote and his fans, trying to blow everyones light out to make theirs shine brighter.. nice shade of green their duke. Have a good a holiday Vale you and your team deserve it. Be surprised if they turn up this weekend as they like to party. The mark of the true champs is that they turn it on when the pressure is greatest and when it's most needed. Another fantastic display(although far from his best)this season and a worthy championship. Thanks for a great season!! Go Rossi!!!!

Instead of just celebrating the greatness of Rossi the super Motogp racer you decided to drag back your foul attitude and your foul boy into here. The question is why? Are all Ozzies that foul like you? It would appear so. The question is why do you keep making yourselves look so foul? Ozzies are just pathetic. Think about it you are saying you like a foul short boy. That's just unnatural if not more twisted. Ozzies are just twisted.
