AGV GP-Tech Mugello Hands Rossi Replica Helmet
Traditionally, every year Valentino Rossi designs a unique helmet for his hometown GP race in Mugello. 2009 was no exception. This year, Rossi arrived in Mugello under an unusually high amount of pressure due to finishing in last place at the previous race (Le Mans). Determined to win his eight consecutive podium at Mugello for his home crowd, Rossi was prepared for the battle against rookie super-talent Jorge Lorenzo, and his more seasoned opponent, former World Champion, Casey Stoner. The pressure, as evident in his helmet design, was on.
