On sale now: 'Rossi- Celebrating the Greatest'

1 of 10

A glossy limited edition MCN bookazine celebrating the life and career of Valentino Rossi, arguably the greatest motorcycle racer the sport has ever known, is available to own now. Scroll down for your free digital sample…

The 132 page tribute to Valentino Rossi was written by a selection of the world’s best MotoGP journalists and features writing from Valentino himself, as well as amazing never-before-seen images of the Italian legend from his early days popping bicycle wheelies right through to his recent clash with Stoner in the 2008 championship.

Starting with an introduction on Valentino by his GP-winning father Graziano, the bookazine goes on to look at the making of Rossi and how a skinny kid from Tavullia, Italy went on to dominate the world of motorcycle racing.

Read all about Rossi’s biggest influences and heroes, look back at a run-down of his crowd-pleasingly eccentric post-race celebrations and take a trip into the psyche of a riding god as Rossi reveals his thoughts on speed.

Valentino’s team mate and racing veteran Colin Edwards talks about Rossi’s riding and uses his unique position and experience to explain just what it is that puts him in a different league. Plus Rossi’s best mate and right hand man Uccio is interviewed on life in the paddock and his relationship with childhood friend Valentino. 

Rossi is famous for his style and expression, so see a visual history of Rossi’s career, painted on the bikes he rode, the helmets he wore and the intimately personal custom stickers he’s known for.

It is possible we try and go for some more records. There are many strong riders but of course I hope that in the future nobody will win like Valentino Rossi!
