Caption This Photo: Rossi at Mugello

For the Italian GP at Mugello this weekend, Fiat-Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi saw it fit to try something a little different in his look for the race. While we are still waiting to see if Rossi will whip out his customary one-off Mugello race helmet, it’s what’s being hidden under the lid that’s catching people off guard…namely that mohawk pictured above. We can only imagine what Fiat-Yamaha crew chief Jeremy Burgess must be saying to Rossi after seeing the haircut (leave your caption in the comments). More Rossi mohawk photos after the jump.


  1. Nice to see Aaron Sleight back racing again :)

  2. Racephoto says:

    “I told you not to stay at Sete’s…”

  3. Steve says:

    “Ok Jeramy,…. this is not funny…..You’re telling me that stylist girl you let cut my hair was really Jorge wearing a wig?”

  4. Suddenly all those stick-on helmet mohawks don’t seem so dorky. No. Wait. Sorry- they’re still dorky.

  5. Scatterbrained says:

    That haircut reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn, so naturally I had to find a fitting F.L. quote….
    “Pay attention to me boy! I’m not just talkin’ to hear my head roar”

  6. Terry Lemmons says:


  7. Andrew Gray says:

    “Vale, you look like a twat”

  9. Maxx says:

    “(Rossi) Do I look gay……….(Burgess) I always thought you were..!!!”

  10. ML says:

    Rossi: “What do you mean I’m going to break my leg?!?!”
    Burgess: “Well, I… I was just sayin’…”
    Rossi: “No… ” [shakes fingers at burgess] “you don’t talk to Rossi like that; no one does!”

  11. eileen ulich says:

    “For my next trick I will break my leg in two”

  12. christian says:

    “You HAVE to curl bleach your hair blonde. If I don’t have a Beavis, everyone would think that my haircut looks stupid.”

  13. Cory says:

    Well, looks like Mohawks cause high-sides. Shoulda had his aerodynamic engineers look at it first!

    Get well soon!

  14. Andy says:

    What do you mean when you say “break a leg” ?

  15. With a haircut like this what could possibly go wrong?

  16. mark armitage says:

    No, I will not give you the name of my hair dresser…!

  17. toni says:

    burgess:”sir, your hair..”
    ross:”say nothing bout my hair, lets keep focus okay and just shut it…”
    the-i-dont-know-what-his-name-person:”see, i told you not to mention his hair…”
