When Valentino Rossi arrives home for a MotoGP, the crowds are beyond energized.

And when World Championship racing heads to the Mugello circuit located in Italy’s Tuscany region just outside Florence, Rossi always adds to this energy by donning a special helmet.

This year, Rossi’s AGV lid was dedicated to “Di Vale” pasta, which was inspired by an actual Italian brand of a similar name.

The graphics featured pieces of rigatoni, symbolizing that despite being in his 20th year racing, the 34-year-old Rossi is still competitive and “never overcooked”!

Also on the helmet are a graphic with shafts of wheat and the Casanova and Savelli corners— Mugello’s right-left combination where Rossi often overtakes his competitors. On the rear are Valentino’s inevitable bulldogs Caesar and Cecilia, this time eating from a bowl of pasta.

The cooking time for “Di Vale” pasta? Strictly 46 minutes! And of course, the AGV, Rossi and the pasta are “Made in Tavullia” – certified Italian products.

Attached above is a photo gallery of Rossi’s 2014 Mugello MotoGP helmet.
