Rossi ready for “special” Misano farewell

Rossi, a three-time winner at Misano, is expecting a tougher weekend than what the riders faced a month ago on the Adriatic coast, as conditions are set to be cooler. The aim for The Doctor during his Italian farewell weekend is to try and be more competitive than he has been, and while a win or a podium seems unfortunately unrealistic for Rossi, his team and his fans, a solid points-scoring ride will signal a successful weekend for the 42-year-old.
