The Greatest of All-Time
Valentino Rossi is my favourite motorcycle racer of all time, no contest. I've been following his career almost as long as I've been riding, and when I started racing myself I took his #46 for my race bike (actually, I had #146 because someone else already had it, but I got as close as I could). I've always admired how he seemed to have so much fun while competing on a world level. I wanted to have that same kind of effortless skill myself.
Rossi's 39 this year, and starting his 22nd MotoGP season. It's also the end of his contract with Yamaha and there's a good chance he's going to hang up his helmet after this year. What better time to go to Italy and watch his last home race.

(Video) Rossi at Mugello
This video series about Valentino Rossi came out in 2016. It's a well-produced five pat series for YouTube. I remember watching it back then, it was great. But watching it now, especially this episode specifically about what it's like to see him at Mugello is even more exciting knowing we're going to be there this summer. Martina and I watched the whole thing, not saying a word. When it was over, we looked at each other and just smiled. This trip is going to be amazing.
