Video of Valentino Rossi’s tribute helmet to Marco Simoncelli

Here is some officiall video footage of Valentino Rossi showing off his new helmet design for Valencia. The helmet is a tribute to Marco Simoncelli who lost his life in the Sepang race.

The design incorporates the front graphics from Simoncelli’s helmet, with the rear design of Rossi’s usual helmet.

Valentino Rossi said:
“I really miss Sic, and I still haven’t completely realised what happened. I thought the least I could do was dedicate my helmet to him and to his number, 58. Here in Valencia number 58 is all over the paddocks, everyone wants to remember him. Sic, this helmet is for you!”

This is a photo of the helmet that Valentino Rossi will be wearing in Valencia this weekend as a tribute to Marco Simoncelli.

The helmet design features the same red and white stripes that Marco Simoncelli’s helmet had, and also features the number 58 in the middle and at the front.

The back of the helmet features Valentino Rossi’s usual ‘AGV Elements helmet‘ design.

It is a nice, understated tribute to Marco Simoncelli.
