Valentino Rossi helmet of the day: The beginning

1 of 3

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.

The helmet of the day for today is where it all began – the original design that Rossi would soon develop into various different guises in his career.

The original sun and moon design was a big hit with Rossi, that combined with his winning attitude and personality made him a face to watch in the 125 class.

But when did he take the 125GP title? Answer the poll below and find the answer tomorrow on the next Rossi helmet of the day.

The answer to yesterday’s poll was A) The Great Escape.
