CAS Rules Against Rossi Request For Stay; He Will Start Last at Valencia


The Court of Arbitration for Sport has denied the request of Valentino Rossi to stay the execution of the FIM’s 3 penalty points assessed against him at Sepang two weeks ago. You can read the full CAS decision here. Despite the denial of the stay, which means Rossi will start from the back of the grid at Valencia this weekend, the appeal will continue forward.

The potential impact of the ultimate ruling by CAS, which could occur at least several months from now, on the results of this year’s championship is unknown.
