Mugello Circuit, 3 June 2017 – In what has now become a tradition, the AGV Pista GP R helmets of Rossi and Iannone for the Saturday morning qualifying sessions for the Italian Motorcycle Grand Prix held in
Mugello, sport special celebratory designs. Designer Aldo Drudi transforms their heartfelt tributes to the late Nicky Hayden and to Italy into art.
Bright colours, the green turf of a football field, the blue eyes of the Champion of Tavullia who, in a brand new footballer version in a light blue jersey of the Italian national team bearing number 46, exclaims "Mo' je faccio er cucchiaio" (the "cucchiaio" or "spoon" being a specific type of penalty kick), as he stands, ready in front of the goalkeeper to score a goal. This expression, spouted in an unmistakeable Roman dialect, reveals Rossi's sporting dedication to Francesco Totti, the icon Italian football player who played the very last match of his fantastic career with the team A.S. Roma last week. With the Italian flag in the background, the tribute continues on the back of the helmet where, under the 58 of Marco Simoncelli, the phrase "On captain... There's only one captain!" appears, another iconic quote taking directly from the chants dedicated to Totti by his Roman fans. A plaster drawn on the front is an attempt by The Doctor to poke fun at himself, a funny reminder of his misadventure during training a few days ago which put his participation in the Italian GP at risk. On the sides of the chin strap, the number 46 is joined by 69, the number of the great Nicky Hayden forming a single, dual-tone 469. The AGV shield, which has accompanied Valentino for more than 20 years in each of his wins, is positioned on the side and completed by the words "Mugello 2017".
