Valentino Rossi helmet of the day: The homage

1 of 6

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 (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 of the day is another Mugello highlight, this time from 2006.

Rossi wore this design on race day for the 2006 Italian GP and it paid homage to the triple-class World Champions career.

Not only did he have helmet regular Guido the dog, he also had Osvaldo the chicken who appeared in a post-race celebration, the race number of the late Daijiro Katoh and his boyhood hero, Steve McQueen.

See if you know the answer to the poll below and check back tomorrow for the result and another Rossi helmet from the past.

Yesterday’s answer was C) 9 race wins.
