Regripping Tyres

What a freak accident! I too noticed the regripping lowside which then flung him straight into the racing line. My heart goes out to his family and to Colin Edwards.


RIP big fella.

goodbye Simo

A sad sad day for motorcycling, one of our brightest stars extinguished before he had the chance to show us how brightly he could shine, look to the heavens tonight for a new star shining. RIP Simo

A Shining Light

These great warriors, we watch them week after week and marvel at the skill they display.

For those of us who ride the appreciation of the skill it takes to do what they do is immeasurable. I am so, so sad that we have lost yet another great talent from this sport that we love so much. It is a tragedy that we have lost him, but it would have been an even greater tragedy had we never seen the talent he possed. Thank you Marco for your undoubted skill, your amazing sense of humour and your crazy hair. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Thank you so much for your gift to the world. Ride fast young man!

Ci Mancherai un sacco

we will miss you a lot....

Nothing can express the sensation of loss in the world this day.

I was in Valencia this morning and just returned to Bologna, through the course of the day, from people of all ages and dispositions, I have heard thier conversations and discussions about the events of this morning.

Without fail, whether it be a barman or taxi driver in Spain or Italy each and every person has expressed thier shock and sadness at the loss of a great man, a great sportsman and a great human being. His character was a big as his hair and the hole he has left will last for a long time.

As mentioned previously in this thread, reading Italian news and speaking with friends here, the news about Super Sic has been the lead story and a minute silence has been held by fans and sportsmen alike.

Thanks Marco, sei grande, sei bravo, Ci mancherai un sacco

Nice words.....

Nice words from Carlo Pernat manager of many a manic Italiano: Simoncelli's manager Carlo Pernat said: "Marco was a cheery boy, everyone's friend. He had expectations, dreams. He was a boy from days gone by, with a wonderful family who taught him good values. It's terrible, there are no words, everyone's very upset, he could have become world champion one day. ***** Maybe not everyones friend, Dani Pedrosa springs to mind. Props to Dani.... on a day that the Moto GP bubble burst and everyone has come down to earth....... words would be worthless..... Dani went to and just held Marco's father in a long embrace, Super Sic's slate is clean.
