PICS: Valentino Ross’s Misano helmet

A boxer on the ropes provides the theme for Valentino Rossi's Misano helmet design
Valentino Rossi unveiled this special helmet design on Saturday at the San Marino Grand Prix (see below for more pitures).

The helmet appears to sum up his tough time as a Ducati rider. It features a cartoon illustration of Rossi as a boxer, slumped on the ropes with bruises, a black eye and teeth missing, but refusing to give up - asking “Come Vado?” (How am I doing?”).

The seven time MotoGP champion is returning to Yamaha next season and Misano is his final appearance for Ducati on home Italian asphalt.

Say what you will about Rossi, but he knows how to make fun of himself even the chips are down. Beaten and bruised and still has a sense of humor about it. That is one of the reasons he has such a huge fan base.
