FROM THE DOMINATION OF MARC MÁRQUEZ TO ZERO: THE CABEÇA HONDA BRIDGE IN GERMANY

Andrea Dovizioso has signaled that motocross could be the post-MotoGP destiny. At the age of 36, the three-time runner-up in the premier class of the World Championship ruled out the transition to superbike and assured him that he wanted to put into practice a project he has in off-roading.

Dovizioso returned to MotoGP in the last stretch of last season after a few sabbatical months after his departure from Ducati. The performance, however, has never been the same. Andrea has not yet managed to get his hands on the M1 YZR-M1 and is currently only 22nd in the Drivers’ Championship, with ten points, 162 less than the leader Fabio Quartararo.

Earlier this month, Andrea was in Misano to watch the World Superbike round, which raised rumors about a possible interest in the series. Dovi, however, guarantees that he is not interested in exchanging prototypes for production bikes, even if he feels he can be competitive.

“Superbike has never been an option,” said Dovizioso. “I’m not saying that production derivatives don’t interest me, but the question remains the level of competitiveness I can express,” he continued.

“I could be competitive, but given my age and my past I’m not looking for new adventures. I have nothing to prove and, at the moment, I prefer to have fun”, he justified.

The Forlì has indicated that the post-MotoGP future will be off-road, putting into practice a motocross project.

“I love motocross. It’s an exciting area where I can bring a project to life that I have in mind,” he added.

MotoGP is back on track next week for the Dutch GP in Assen, the eleventh stage of the 2022 season. GREAT PRIZE accompanies all the activities of the 2022 World Championship.
