Valentino Rossi wanted to dedicate a post to Jason Dupasquier, putting on paper his own greeting to the unfortunate Swiss rider. This is the text that accompanies his post:
"I didn't know Jason Dupasquier personally,I hadn't had the chance to meet him in the paddock, however I was following him on the track.
This year he was going strong, he had recovered from a bad injury but he was constantly in the group of the fast ones.
He had an aggressive style on the bike, which together with the abbreviation you could see on TV next to his number (JDU) reminded me of the legendary Joey Dunlop.
The images of Saturday were immediately very worrying and in the evening it was clear that his condition was very serious, but in these situations you never know everything and you stick to the slightest hope.
Sunday, an hour before the race, came the news that no one wanted to hear.
It was very hard to put on the helmet and get on the bike because in a moment everything loses sense, and you wonder what you are still doing there.
Maybe the best way to honor and remember another rider is to race and try to give your best, even if unfortunately not even this can change what happened.
Ciao Jason, rest in peace".
