Seriously? I saw the guy wear it and carry it around during the entire qualifying today, and saw him take it out of his helmet bag before the session even started. How do you photoshop that?

"The rider" is Valentino Rossi- arguably the most talented rider in MotoGP, and possibly the most talented rider in the history of the sport. I think he knows how to look through a turn...

I know who Rossi is, and YES...he IS the most talented rider prolly ever! And I know the helmet is real too, I just thought the pic looked a lil altered by the look of his faceshield pointing straight down while at full lean. But then again...that is Rossi!

I can't believe someone wouldn't like Rossi. He is a character and give character to the sport. He is funny and he is fast.

Some people you just can't make happy.

Awesome Helmet design thanks for sharing Tom.

I am seriously considering it! I think that is one of the coolest things I have ever seen a pro athlete do!

Like some have mentioned, every time I saw him flying down a straight in full tuck, I chuckled. Especially since he was so far ahead, you KNOW the dude was having the time of his life!

I can't believe the announcer guy didn't say anything about it until the end of the race. It was cracking me up everytime I saw it.

They talked about it a lot during qualifying and before they went on the track for qualifying.
