Valentino Rossi Airing it!
It's always been known that Vale is a fan of motocross and practices very often. He says it's for fun and also for training, for slides, better bike control and endurance. It was during one of those sessions riding together that Marco Simoncelli broke his wrist right before the season opener, a small mistake that costed Supersic the 2010 250cc title.
Notice on the above photo the AGV motocross helmet painted to the 5 Continents colors. No MX boots for Dainese so it's Sidi for him and the pants are One Industries brought to him by the Monster Energy guys.
Here's Motocross Action's article on Vale's Motocross dei Campioni race last weekend:
IS VALENTINO ROSSI SWITCHING TO MOTOCROSS?
