For Robby Rolfo, Valencia is the track where his dogged bid for 250 World Championship honours will succeed, or end in heroic failure.

The Italian Honda man has never stopped taking the fight to Aprilia hordes and his sheer consistency has been one of the marvels of the season. He has finished every race he has started this season and scored points in them all.
"Valencia is a track I like," said Rolfo. "In the past I had problems to find a set up that would allow me to go fast, but last year I was much better. The setting problems come from a lack of grip on the track but that depends on how much rubber there is on the surface.

"A lot of the track is very slow and acceleration onto the two straights is very important to get a good lap time, particularly the second gear corner onto the back straight. One thing for sure, it will be a good race because a lot of riders are very fast at Valencia."

Rolfo needs to score eight more points than title leader Manuel Poggiali to win the title. If Rolfo wins and Poggiali is third or lower, Rolfo will steal the crown.
