Well, it’s been a fun ride, but as we know, all good things must come to an end. We have arrived at the final installment of Monster’s mini series on the legendary Valentino Rossi.
This episode focuses on Rossi’s endeavors outside of racing. His center is in his hometown of Tavullia, which for him “is an escape from the madness of international recognition.” Tavullia also functions as the epicenter of his business dealings. He has a prospering merchandise company, which produces gear for Rossi and a number of other riders. He even owns a pizza shop in town.
Rossi also spends considerable time teaching the next generation of riders. He started an Academy at his Ranch (episode 3), where he trains and mentors promising young professionals.
This episode emphasizes that Rossi is more than a rider. He’s the Doctor and he’s the Boss.
A legend for sure.
