Movistar Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi, who made a brilliant start to the 2014 MotoGP sea-son by starting from 10th on the grid but battling through the field to finish 0.259 seconds behind race winner Marc Marquez in Qatar on March 23, will look to improve on his showing last year at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas this weekend.

“Last year I made one of the worst races of the season in Texas, and this year I want to see if we can be competitive everywhere,” said the six-time world champion. The main race gets under way at 2am Cambodian time on Monday.
