RIP Marco

Marco was destined to be a Moto GP champ,he was one of those special riders who gets you standing up to watch.It's a very sad day for any one who enjoys racing.His Helmet did not come off in the crash but split in two from the impact of the collisions which where unavoidable,but maybe we should consider not following F1 technology in developing Moto GP bikes as despite traction control etc they still create massive get offs that don't seem to occur in Superbikes,pushing tyre tech to the limits is tough on riders.Like everyone else today my thought are with His Family & Friends.Marco was a true Champion.

RIP Supersic

I'm devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with Marco's family, loved ones and Colin and Vale at this time. I feel a deep emptiness in my heart. The world has lost a bright light and our beloved sport a true gladiator.

RIP #58

Sad to loose such a star and character, a massive loss to everyone. Felt so sad to watch his Father and girl friend watching it trackside.

Motogp will not be the same without you.

Also feel so sad for Colin and Vale as they were friends and surely must be feeling it.

Nothing but respect for Marco, RIP...

Marco was one of the great characters and personalities in racing. Having supported him and witnessed the respect his fans had for him at Misano this year it truly saddened us to hear the news after what was a freak accident. Motogp will be hollow and empty without him. Rest in piece #58.
