They say it’s good to be the king, but in Italy this past weekend it was darned good to be The Doctor. Valentino Rossi scored his 107th MotoGP victory and very first in a 2014 season that was dominated by Spain’s Marc Marquez. The thirty-five year old made the most of the event by wearing a helmet, which according to MotoGP.com bore the “handprints of the mechanics of the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team, the prints of his beloved dogs Cesare and Cecilia, together with those of his red cat Rossano; the lip marks of the women of his life – his mother Stefania and his girlfriend Linda; and, last but not least, the fingerprint of his friend and designer Aldo Drudi.” As you’ll see in this video, he could barely contain his excitement during the final laps. The podium was shared with Rossi’s teammate Jorge Lorenzo in second place and Dani Pedrosa in third. Current championship leader, Marc Marquez, took fifteenth place failing to recover from a crash early in the race.
