Valentino Rossi has announced he will retire from MotoGP at the end of the season. The nine-time world champion, 42, announced the news in the leadup to the Styrian Grand Prix this weekend. Rossi will bring down the curtain on an illustrious 25- year career which yielded 115 victories. Rossi has been the dominant rider of his generation. The Italian made his mark in the 125cc world championship – the breeding ground for many of the latest stars of MotoGP – in 1996. Rossi took his first win that year at Brno in the Czech Republic and finished ninth in the overall standings.

His announcement was bitter-sweet, coming at the track on which he won his first podium in 1996.

“I said I would make a decision for next year after the summer break, and I decided to stop at the end of the season,” Rossi said in a release. “Unfortunately this will be my last half season as a MotoGP rider. And it’s difficult, it’s a very sad moment because it’s difficult to say it and know that next year I will not race with a motorcycle, I’ve done that for I think more or less 30 years!

“Next year, my life will change. But it was great, I’ve enjoyed it very much. It’s been a long, long journey and it was really, really fun. It’s 25, 26 years in the World Championship, so it was great. And I had unforgettable moments with all my guys, the guys who work for me, so … I don’t have a lot to say! Just this.

Besides Aleix and Pol Espargaro as well as Alex and Marc Marquez, despite Valentino Rossi's withdrawal to the end of the season, there are three brothers pairs in the MotoGP season 2022 in the field. Because Darryn Binder, the younger brother of KTM-Pilot Brad Binder, is associated with rumbling with a direct rise from the Moto3 class to the premier class.

Rossi sculpted the landscape of MotoGP for years and has had an influence on nearly every motorcycle rider who rides in the paddock to date. The guy was a phenomenom, a complete prodigy, surmounting 7 titles, 89 premier class wins, and 199 podiums. Last year and this year you could really see he just wasn't able to keep up anymore. He has nothing left to give to the sport. I used to dream about him winning that elusive 10th title after 2015, then it turned into dreaming about another race win, and now it has turned into dreaming he at least gets his 200th podium before he retires .

The legendary MotoGP career of Valentino Rossi will come to a close at the end of the 2021 season, the Italian has announced in a press conference. After rising through the ranks of 125cc to 500cc and then MotoGP , with 115 career victories, nine world titles and numerous battles with rivals along the way, the 43- year -old will call time on his motorcycle racing at the end of his 26 th world championship season.

“I had a very long career and fortunately I won a lot of races, but I have some moments and victories that are unforgettable. Pure joy. Some things where I laughed for a week and after 10 days I’d still be laughing, wonder why and remember the race. It’s difficult, yes.”

In addition to his seven titles in MotoGP, the most recent of which came in 2009, Rossi finished second in the points five times, including three times consecutively from 2014 through 2016.

Rossi’s 89th and latest MotoGP win came in the 2017 Dutch GP. His podium count slowed at the same time with six coming in 2017, five in 2018, two in 2019 and only one last year. Last year’s campaign was also marred by a battle with the COVID-19 virus that caused him to miss two of the 14 rounds.

So far through nine races of 2021, he has not yet stood on the podium with a best of 10th in Italy.

The decision to retire came during what may be the most difficult season of Rossi’s career. He lost his factory Yamaha ride and elected to campaign in what has become his farewell tour with some backing from Yamaha at Petronas SRT. The season has been less than stellar, however, with no podiums, just 17 points earned and a ranking of 19th in the standings.
