Super Marco

You will be sadly missed from MotoGP, you added excitement to a series that had lost its magic. You kept me watching, you were a true racer, fearless, brave, hard but fair, maligned for being so.  You could have been the best, a great talent taken so young. My thoughts are with your family and friends at this tragic time.  This was a tragic accident which Colin and Val could do nothing about, alas I have seen too many in my life time watching motorcycle racing on track and roads.  God be with you Marco.

Absolutely shocking. What a massive, massive loss...

Words are not enough to describe the enormous feeling of sadness and loss.

Rest In Peace Marco Simoncelli.

Forever a champion. Forever missed.

My wife went into labour at midnight last night and I've spent the last 15 hours rubbing her back, panting with her and supporting her in every way that i could for a homebirth. At 1500 hrs we admitted defeat, the little man just didn't want to come and she was taken into hospital where she was rushed into theatre and we had our first child, a boy, at 1700 this evening. When the boy came out, he was grey in colour and had stopped breathing and 2 mins later the emergency theatre team got him breathing again. An hour later colour had come back to him and he was latching onto his mother both of them kept in hospital overnight though for further checks.

So i come home alone tonight leaving my wife and new boy in hospital to stick on the Moto GP and hear the awful news of Marco's death.

My emotions of the day have been dashed from the ultimate high to this dreadfully sad news low. I'm absolutely heartbroken for Marco's family and friends and especially his girlfriend. It is without a shadow of a doubt the most disturbing crash i have had the misfortune to see.

Desperately demoted right now.

Far too often people come on this site and slag off riders to a personal level that is beyond the playground and many times beyond spiteful. It's downright f**king dispicable in alot of cases. Every single person that has slagged a rider off in previous threads should hang their heads in shame today. They ALL put their lives on the line everytime they go throw a leg over their bikes in the name of the sport and the show. This is Moto GP, the world pinnacle of the sport, alot of people on this forum need to start showing a little more respect.

Can we ALL please refrain from the personal attacks on riders in the future.

R.I.P. Marco, an incredible talent snatched from us far too soon.

Poor Marco RIP you will be missed! The most exciting rider of moto gp racing in recent history. He had such a bright future taken away so cruelly. At least he died doing what he loved. He was only 24 years old but he lived more in 5 minutes than most do in a lifetime!

Humbling moment

Was watching with my 2 1/2 year old son, who every time he rides his trike shouts 'Casey Oner',Casey Oner!!!....... He couldn't understand why they weren't racing, and I couldn't find any words to explain, I just gave him a huge cuddle. Puts life in perspective and makes you realize what is really important to you. God bless you Marco...Like or dislike him, he added an unpredidictability to an otherwise predictable show that will be sorely missed. Your candle burned bright but for far too short a time. Deepest condolences to family and friends
