German MotoGP: Rossi rides victory high to Sachsenring

"I'm going to Sachsenring with a new spirit” – Valentino Rossi.
Having finally broken his longest win drought as a grand prix rider, Valentino Rossi heads to this weekend's German MotoGP with a 'new spirit'.

The seven time MotoGP champion rode to his first victory since 2010 last time out in Assen and is now determined to continue the momentum at the Sachsenring, where he has claimed premier-class wins in 2002, 2005, 2006 (from eleventh on the grid) and 2009.

"I'm going to Sachsenring with a new spirit,” declared Rossi, who returned to Yamaha this season after two tough years at Ducati. “I am very happy for the Holland race. Now I want to keep it going like that. We also want to confirm at Sachsenring the step we've made with the bike.

“We must continue to improve the bike, as we have done after testing at Aragon, because now we want to try to fight for important positions. We want to stay with the top guys every weekend. I really like Sachsenring and then there will be Laguna Seca. These will be two very important weekends.”

Rossi is fifth in the world championship, but now just two points behind Cal Crutchlow, after seven of 18 rounds.
