Dubbed The Greatest of All Time, or simply, the GOAT, Valentino Rossi is a living legend in the world of MotoGP. Fans can’t get enough of him, and frankly, neither can we. Thankfully, Rossi is also sponsored by Monster Energy drinks, who have funded the making of a five-part series entitled: Valentino Rossi: The Doctor. In this, the second of five episodes (you can catch episode 1 here), the series follows Valentino to the biggest race on the MotoGP calendar: Mugello. Rossi’s home race, the pressure is always high, as are the demands for his time. But The Doctor loves this place and the fans love him back. If you could only attend one MotoGP race all year, Mugello is the one to be at and this video gives a glimpse into the reason why – the fans are some of the most passionate people you’ll meet anywhere. Check out Monster’s description of the video below, then keep scrolling to view the episode.
The second episode in the ‘Valentino Rossi: The Doctor Series’ ventures to one of the most intense, emotional and important Grands Prix on the MotoGP slate: Mugello. In the spectacular Tuscan hills lies the fast and sweeping racetrack at which Rossi has enjoyed and endured some of the finest and most difficult moments of his career.
The 5km asphalt has been home to seven consecutive MotoGP wins and is also an annual festival of colour, noise and ‘fandom-mania’ as Valentino stands at the centre of the whirlwind for three days.
‘Racing Mugello’ follows the man under the brightest and most pressurised of spotlights with insight and comments from his inner circle and group. What is the Grand Premio D’Italia really like for an icon such as The Doctor and the fans that flock to see him? This is Mugello.
