MotoGP is the pinnacle of motorcycle racing and could be considered the Formula 1 of the two-wheeled world. Current series point leader and seven-time Grand Prix World Championship title winner Valentino Rossi has a habit of debuting a new helmet design at the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, and this year's design did not fail to disappoint. Featuring a roughly life-size portrait of The Doctor himself in the middle of a scream, it was pretty hard to miss Rossi, even in the field of brightly colored riders and bikes. If you haven't watched the race and plan to, now would be the time to stop reading, otherwise, find out who won the event after the break, along with a link to the video of Rossi's debut of his unique new helmet design. Thanks for the tip, Gabriel!

Rossi managed to collect the win at the 2009 Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, followed on the podium by last year's series winner, Casey Stoner. Dani Pedrosa nabbed the third and final podium position. Rossi managed twenty-five points for his efforts and now leads the series by twelve points over Pedrosa. Stoner currently sits at fourth in the series standings.
