Rossi continues to improve using modified motorcycle clothing
MotoGP fans should not bet against seeing Valentino Rossi's iconic crash helmet cross the line first in the next race in Indianapolis.
The Italian champion, still racing with specially modified motorcycle clothing to provide extra support to his injured right leg, says he is feeling stronger all the time and is ready to fight for the win.
Rossi won the inaugural race at the Brickyard in 2008, when the race was hampered somewhat by Hurricane Ike.
He told the MotoGP website: "Indianapolis is a special place, an amazing track and as always it's fun to race in America.
"I have great memories from 2008 when I won in the hurricane, even if it's not something I want to repeat!"
Rossi was at a loss to explain his poor performance after the last race in Brno, suggesting that his set-up had been all wrong, but after a positive testing session in the Czech Republic he is feeling positive.
