Great pics. Shame we'll never get to see anything like the WRC down here.

Number 3 is crying out for a caption competition. "but Cassina, I is busting for a pees"

Great shots of an absolute legend. Is he competing in the WRC then?

Fantastic shots thanks for sharing. I'm a massive fan of Rossi, which is unusual for me to be like that. Nice to seem him in good spirits after the disapointment of M-GP.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Originally Valentino was seeded 11th at the start, and well, he finished 11th. Great on him. Only 18 seconds down from a Top 10 finish, which isn't too bad. If only he had some more confidence in his first day, he could have easily been 8th or 9th, after regularly finishing in that position for a stage on the Sunday

Wow. I think I would have fell over in awe and broke my camera. Great shots. That's something you'll always remember.
Now if we could only get WRC coverage back in the US!


30D etc.
