Rossi turns heads with special edition Mugello helmet

Rossi turns heads with special edition Mugello helmet

In keeping with tradition, MotoGP star Valentino Rossi showed off a distinctive new helmet design in free practice at his home Grand Prix at Mugello on Saturday morning.

Fiat Yamaha´s Italian idol Valentino Rossi entertained the crowd with the unveiling of an eye-catching special edition Mugello helmet in the MotoGP Saturday morning free practice session, as has become the custom on his home race weekend.

Rossi´s Aldo Drudi-designed AGV helmet features a picture of his own face, displaying a highly excited expression, which the five-time premier class title-winner believes can provide his army of fans with an idea of how it feels to ride the Yamaha M1 around the undulating Mugello circuit at speeds in excess of 320 kh/h.

The current MotoGP standings leader hopes the helmet will bring him luck as he seeks to secure a seventh successive Mugello win in front of his adoring fans in the Tuscan hills on Sunday, to extend his title advantage and build on the back of his recent victories in China and France.
