So saddened - RIP Marco

Am shocked and so very upset to have witnessed the crash today and wanted to offer condolences for Marco's family, friends and close ones.  MotoGP and its fans have lost a vivacious, talented and likeable young man who had it all in front of him.  I have lost one of my two favourites.  It won't be the same without him.  Thoughts with his family and girlfriend.  RIP Marco.

Ciao Marco


He added a spark MGP needed, he had a raw unpredictable riding style and one that you had to watch, entertaining and there was nobody like him..........for me he made MGP worth watching, not like some of the factory robots.......RIP Marco and condolences to his will be sadly missed.

Super Sad

Exciting rider to watch, and seemed to be a good guy to boot. Also tragic that it was at the hands of one of his friends Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards. There was nothing they could do, the whole thing was bad, bad luck. MS, was on the verge of being really great in MotoGP. RIP.

Curly ball of fun.

Unlike the robots in motogp today you were a charasmatic ball of curly fun who rode like a champ (250cc world champion twice) when i first saw you race i thought this is the man who will keep the life in the top flight of racing after rossi has would have gone on to greatness to equal the likes of hailwood,agostini and sheene, all great fun but most of all fantastic racers. R.I.P. Marco

Marco R.I.P

A sad loss to MotoGP, Marco R.I.P. You where a future champion, you where full of fun, unlike most of the riders in the class today.

My heart also goes out to Colin Edwards and Rossi, they must be going through hell right now. I hope Rossi can come through it after the loss of his mate.

I am alos disgusted with the spectators at the track. When they annoynced the race was cancelled they behaved like idiots, shouting and throwing items on the track, what where they thinking, when a race is cancelled its for a reason a major reason.

My thoughts go out to the family, friends and everyone involved around the team.
