Today at Valencia, Valentino Rossi and his Repsol Honda team finally revealed the secret livery with which the Italian world champion will ride at this weekend's season ending Valencia Grand Prix.

The livery was chosen after title sponsor Repsol ran a competition with Spanish motorcycle magazine, Motociclismo, in which readers were invited to create a paint scheme incorporating the Spanish company's logo. Rossi Honda and Repsol then chose this design from 15 shortlisted entries.

Provisional pole sitter Rossi finished this morning's free practice session third behind Nicky Hayden and Carlos Checa. Final qualifying takes place this afternoon.
