How does Valentino Rossi spend his Christmas? Surrounded by friends, riding motorcycles at his ranch, of course! The nine-time MotoGP champ posted this video to his YouTube channel two days ago of he and his friends wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (in Italian).

Rossi is known for his creative celebrations after race wins, so to see him come up with this idea for a special holiday send off shouldn’t be a surprise. Nonetheless, seeing a bunch of motorcycles sliding around, forming a “Buon Natale” (Merry Christmas) and “Buon Anno” (Happy New Year) formation is still really cool. Admittedly this post is a day late for Christmas, but it still applies as we usher in 2014.
