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.

Today’s helmet was worn by Valentino at this year’s Mugello GP.

Rossi unveiled the lid for Sunday’s race day with his very own face painted on the top.

Rossi went on to a rampant victory, and the reception to the new helmet design was enough to push AGV in to producing a limited number for the members of the public.

But what is the answer to the poll below?

The answer to yesterday’s question was: B) for copyright reasons.

Check back tomorrow for the next Rossi helmet of the day and the answer to today’s question.
