To celebrate the launch of MCN’s exclusive 132 page Valentine Rossi tribute bookazine available on November 11, we’ll be bringing you a Valentino Rossi helmet of the day for you to poll on.

The MCN bookazine is a celebration of the career of the man himself with exclusive words written by Valentino and an introduction from the eight-time World Champion and his father, Graziano Rossi.

Priced at £7.99, it’s a limited edition glossy title written by the top names in the Grand Prix paddock – a must for every MotoGP and Valentino Rossi fan.

You can find it in newsagents from November 12 - or you can order your copy direct from Tower by calling 0845-6012672 or by visiting www.subscription.co.uk/products/rossi (Quote code: ROSI). An extra charge for postage and packaging applies to mail order purchases.

Keep your eye on the Rossi lid of the day, as on November 11 we’ll be running a very special competition for one MCN online reader to win a Rossi replica AGV K3 helmet and ten runners-up will get a copy of the Rossi book to celebrate the book launch.

The helmet for today is Rossi’s 2005 Mugello GP winning lid to celebrate him becoming a real Doctor.

Rossi received an honorary doctorate from the University of Urbino on the eve of the Italian GP.

Rossi celebrated with a scholar-style design on the top of the lid for the race weekend, courtesy of the doctorate from his most local university.

But can you answer the question below about this lid?

The answer to yesterday’s poll was c) To prove his heart was still in the sport.
