Roby Rolfo discusses WBSK, MotoGP and his MV Augsta



We are at Phillip Island for the opening round of the Eni World Superbike Championship and we caught up with Roby Rolfo, rider with the Parkin GO MV Augusta team in the World Supersport Championships.

Rolfo is no stranger to a motorbike paddock having raced in the WSBK in the past along with MotoGP, Moto2 and 250cc paddocks.  He has scored a win in the Moto2 when he won in Malaysia in 2010.  His 250cc career was where he was the most successful, having taken third in the Championship in 2002 and then went one better for second in 2003.

A season on a Ducati in 2005 would prove difficult, scoring 25 points over the year.  The next year, he stepped back to Moto2.  He returned to MotoGP in 2012 with the ART CRT team for the final three races, though without joy.

He has also had a couple of seasons in the WSBK, with Ducatis and Hondas, though never really found his stride.  This year, he is in the WSS developing the new MV Augsta – and after a couple days in Australia is back at the front.

We caught up with Roby to discuss his career, MotoGP and of course his new form with MV Augusta.
