Valentino Rossi and GoPro teamed up earlier this month during a VR46 Academy day at Misano, and the by-product of that pairing is about as eye-pleasing as you'd expect.

Well, okay, in reality this is is just an onboard video of Rossi shot with a GoPro Hero 5 Session. But the image quality is seriously impressive, and as a lot of followers pointed out on Rossi's Facebook page, it's amazing to watch how smooth Valentino is with his inputs. From getting the bike in to the corner, to firing it off, everything seems so fluid and effortless. It's too bad we won't be seeing Misano any time soon, because this would be the perfect studying tool for picking out lines and more.

Either way, it's 1:45 worth of awesome video that you should definitely check out. Just be sure to turn the volume up!
