There are moments in a rider's career that they never forget, and no matter how much time passes or moments that are experienced, something always remains in the memory.

And one of those memories for Valentino Rossi was 2015 and the loss of the championship to Jorge Lorenzo, because of Marc Márquez as the Italian states.

Guest of a TV Show 'Le Iene', a broadcast that will air on Tuesday in prime time on Italia 1, Valentino Rossi spoke of 2015.

"There are many bad memories of that year because there was a great fight between me and Lorenzo and we had problems with Marquez that made me lose - he said -. It was never seen that a champion runs to make someone lose and not to beat him. I'm sorry I didn't win the 10th world championships because in Valencia I made a mistake and I crashed but this hurt more. It's a big regret because I didn't expect it and from there it wasn't anymore the same".

"It was a very exciting weekend at Misano, with a great atmosphere. It was full of people, full of fans. Then I'm happy because I managed to have a good race. I started back and finished tenth, I managed to go pretty fast. , I did some overtaking, I enjoyed it, so it was the best way to greet all the fans. And after the checkered flag I stopped under the grandstand, I pulled my helmet, it was nice "he added.
