The best photos of Valentino on his last Thursday in the MotoGP paddock

Valentino Rossi was always an exceptional rider, but above all he knew how to handle his image and the media masterfully. For the Italian, Thursdays have been his natural habitat, without motorcycles or competition in between, the melee with televisions and journalists was one of his specialties, competing through his messages and statements. In that field he was also the best, the champion.

The Valencia paddock will go down in history as the last one Valentino stepped on as an active rider and this Thursday the emotions have been very intense for the #46. First discovering a monumental mural, which will remain as a tribute in the enclosure, and then uncovering the nine motorcycles with which he was world champion, brought from the museums of each of the manufacturers.

Rossi , accompanied by his partner, Francesca Sofia Novello , who will soon be the mother of his first daughter, and his closest friends in the paddock, has been overcoming the surprises and emotions experienced on his last Thursday in MotoGP.
