‘The best mem­o­ries are of the amount of en­ergy he still had at 70’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN THIS WEEK - VALENTINO ROSSI

“I had a great re­la­tion­ship with An­gel, be­cause I grew up with Fonsi, his nephew. He was spe­cial be­cause of his charisma, not just be­cause of his vic­to­ries. Not only the 13 world cham­pi­onships but also for the man that he was. For me, the best mem­o­ries are of the amount of en­ergy he still had at 70 – one night we went out for din­ner in Ibiza and then to party, and at 5am I was de­stroyed and wanted to go to sleep and An­gel wanted to keep go­ing!”
