Ducati confirm Valentino Rossi crew for Valencia test
Ducati has confirmed that all of Valentino Rossi’s crew have been released to work with the Italian when he makes his much-hyped Bologna factory debut in Valencia next month.
Rossi was released from his Yamaha contract during the recent Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island and Ducati has confirmed that Jerry Burgess and the rest of the nine-times world champion’s crew are free to join the 31-year-old when he tests in Valencia on November 9.
Ducati has also freed Casey Stoner’s crew to move immediately with the Australian to Honda at the Valencia test.
That includes his long-serving crew chief Cristian Gabbarini.
