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 of the day for today is this very patriotic replica worn by Rossi during his 2002 Mugello GP win.

This was one of the eleven races won by Rossi in the first year of the four-stroke 990’s.

But where did the inspiration come from for this helmet?

Choose your answer and vote on our poll – results will be here tomorrow with another Rossi helmet.

The answer to yesterday’s question was: B) The Show.
