The Misano MotoGP race always brings out the Valentino Rossi “tifosi” in the tens of thousands, and this year was no different as their idol was aiming to take his first win since the opening race win in Qatar this year.
Misano lays just 13 km away from Valentino Rossi’s hometown of Tavullia, where the 31-year-old motorcycle racing legend grew up and where he still lives today.
Indianapolis was tough for Rossi, who is still suffering the effects of his injury earlier in the season. But, the fact that Rossi placed third in 2010 and has won in the previous two years, gives him confidence that will carry him through the rest of the MotoGP racing season.
Valentino Rossi had a big weekend in the Italian party town and rolled out a new paint job on his motorcycle helmet. The time clock design was to remind Rossi to be on time.
The new Valentino Rossi time clock helmet also shows that the Doctor’s health, spirits and antics are getting back to his express motorcycle racing self in a timely fashion.
