Rossi follows in his father´s footsteps

Valentino Rossi debuted a new helmet design that he will use as a one-off for the Gran Premio Cinzano D´Italia. As is becoming the norm, the Italian World Champion has made various changes to his clothing equipment for his home race, and on this occasion he has decided to parade the same design as that sported by his father, Graziano, when he competed in the World Championship.

The helmet that Rossi will be wearing incorporates the colours of the Italian flag over a white background. The difference as compared with that of his father is the insertion of his traditional number 46 on the sides. On the lower part of the helmet, there are small designs which represent and define his country of birth, like a pizza, a plate of spaghetti and a football.
