AGV Pista GP R – The tradition continues. Yesterday, in Misano, Valentino Rossi presented a special design for the helmet that he used during the 2016 Grand Prix of San Marino.
This year, the film “The Blues Brothers” inspires the Italian champion. He finished second behind Dani Pedrosa. In 1980, John Landis directed the legendary movie. Valentino Rossi and his friend Alessio “Uccio” Salucci make a parody on AGV Pista GP R, interpreting the two movie stars, John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.
Of course, the logo on the front of the helmet AGV Tricolore remains. On the back we see the words “Sweet home Misano”, in a modified form of the famous song from the classic. At the same time it is a tribute to “Rossi’s house” and many fans of the Misano GP. Also, Rossi makes many other interesting details with the designer of the new helmet. The AGV GP Track R has an elaborate design. Such as the dogs of the “Doctor” Cesare and Cecilia and his cat Rossano, immortalized on head protection, for example. The helmet AGV Pista GP R is the evolution of the original AGV GP, which is designed specifically for use in competitions.
The funny AGV Pista GP R does not stop the controversy with Lorenzo
The controversy doesn’t stop. Even after many months between Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. This time the Spaniard didn’t like the overtaking of Italian champion after the start of the San Marino Grand Prix. Lorenzo accused Rossi during the after race press conference. “Overtaking? It was aggressive. You may have different opinions. Mine is that it was an overly aggressive overtaking. He didn’t need to be so early in the race. However, that’s his style. Other drivers spend in a more clean.” said Jorge Lorenzo.
At this point Rossi invited Lorenzo to see again the video of overtaking, but the Spaniard doesn’t stop. “If I hadn’t straightened out the bike, we’d end up on the ground. You maybe not, I certainly yes.” The “Doctor” replied. “What are you talking about? That’s not true. What should I say to Marquez in Silverstone? When he made 10 passes like that.” “Ok, don’t laugh, respects my opinion.” added Lorenzo. “Race direction could have a different opinion.” But Rossi concluded. “Why not look at the video?”
