Valentino Rossi Speaks

"It has been my first real mistake during this season: to regain some time after a corner out of trajectory, I had to brake where I shouldn’t…" Valentino said after his fall at Indianapolis Moto GP…

And so, with good sense of humor he decided to emphasize his mistake showing an helmet with a very particular face on it: a donkey!

The Donkey, that takes place of The Doctor in the helmet’s graphic, is the new AGV Valentino’s face, after the big success of the ones used at Mugello ’08 and ’09…a sort of new tool for Valentino to comunicate with all his fans and supporters.
