RIP

A very sad loss for his family and to motor sport. He was an exciting rider to watch. He took risks and went for it. He'd have been a champion for sure.

I was watching the race this morning and had a bad feeling when I saw his helmet was off.

RIP.

I like the idea SeaDweller. But you're probably right, it won't happen.

I couldn't believe

What I heard, couldn't watch live so recorded it. Heard that he was in the medical centre and the wife knew instantly. I was literally in shock as I read out the statement to her. Still can't believe it. RIP Simoncelli. You will be missed, thoughts to his family and friends.

A sad day

You can follow a racer for years, supporting them and taking pleasure in their achievements, even sharing in their on-track sadnesses and frustrations; but it takes an event like this to make you realise just how much you invest of yourself emotionally in these colourful, masterful, even genius, characters. And Marco was certainly one of the most colourful and masterful. He lent motogp an unpredictability and an excitement that will be much missed now; but more so, he was a very fast, very talented rider. 
This season has seen some fantastic on-track  battles, notably between he and Andrea Dovizioso, and these are what I'll be remembering him most for.
My most heartfelt sympathies go to his friends, family, and team. I know that Colin Edwards was also involved in the incident, and to him I say, rest up and come back fighting next season. You're a racer, and no one, least of all Super Sic, would want to see that change.

R.I.P #58

R.I.P Marco.
You were a true talent and an almost guarenteed future champion, plus the natural successor to Rossi's media legacy. You weren't afraid to upset the status quo, and always rode how you felt right. (usually elbows and hair waving and flapping). You reminded everyone of us why we love this sport. And you went out doing something you loved. For those reasons you have my greatest respect.

This will either make or break Rossi. He'll either retire as this event proves to much for him to bear (and lets be honest no-one would blame you for that, and there would be no shame).
Or Rossi will come back fighting, kicking, bucking and weaving in a tribute to his close friend, and I dare say, dedicate any future wins to Marco.

A tragic loss!

I also like the SeaDweller's idea.

But you're right, it won't happen...
