God bless you Marco

What can I say. You are an absolute legend; a one-off character & pure racer. Still can't believe this has happened. I was fearing the worst but praying for the best - sadly it wasn't to be. My thoughts & prayers are with all family & friends. What a loss. I'm sure you'll never be forgotten. RIP Marco

Another sad day for our great sport. Another great rider taken before his prime.

Marco was brought undo like Lorenzo last week by traction control. He should have highsided but gets thrown to the inside of the bike and rides it to impact. In Lorenzos case the ground and in Marcos case into the path of poor Colin and Rossi.

RIP Marco. Ride hard mate, no more drive through penalties for you!
