If you’re going to make a statement, make a slightly baffling one…

You know, it’s a weird time in racing when the testing phases are underway and a rider has a lot of time to think about what ‘message’ they send out to the rest of the paddock.

Valentino Rossi, at the height of his powers, would often wrap up a test early and go and sit in the stands, watching his rivals still lapping. That was a powerful bit of mind games going on.

But this.. well, it’s certainly a statement. Quite literally. This photo of the ass on his Alpinestars leathers has appeared on Andrea Dovizioso’s Twitter feed with the following explanation: “UNDAUNTED: adjective. Not intimidated or discouraged by difficulty, danger, or disappointment, calm, self master.”


Yeah… As for us, all we can see when we look at this in Unda United. Honestly, we thought it was a local five-a-side or something.
