Valentino Rossi @ Valencia with Ducati

Now its a reality with Valentino putting on the new colors for the Ducati Desmosedici. The fully carbon fibered GP11 ready for Valentino’s testing even though it went through a bit of a rough spot, he is just getting his leg around the machine and Ducati will work out the kinks. “The Doctor” has taken his usual style changed it up a bit with the black with yellow accents on the Dainese suit, with a new AGV helmet design which has a Question Mark set between the Italian’s Sun & Moon logo.

These amazing pictures from the behind the scenes photographer Gigi Soldano. Valentino Rossi’s personal photographer Soldano is privy to all those insane and quiet moments in a MotoGP paddock. The new helmet is appealing to me, if only it was available from Arai or Shoei I would snap it right up. Rossi is off to a new adventure I just hope they perfect the GP11 so its ready to be ridden this coming MotoGP season, I want to see what Rossi can do on a Ducati, I think everyone is ready to see him riding this season.
