#58 RIP Marco

we will all feel the loss of the Super SIC but none more than Valentino, watching the telecast I think Rossi may have known Marco was gone, I have never seen him look so desolate during his ride back to the pits.

marco was a very good friend of Rossi and Valentino often said Marco was the one to watch in the future his talent was boundless.

I just hope this tragedy does not weigh too heavily on him

I believe this question has to be asked, why the helmet came off?

Apparently one of the bikes hit the back of Marco's head, knocking the helmet off. So you can imagine how hard that hit was :-(

Marco was the most exciting rider in GP and he showed the most promise. People said he crashed too much but simply a case I pushing a customer machine to its limits. Great hair, great skill and a loss to the world of sport.

I'm still numb. It was big shocked when I changed back to Moto GP within seconds then I saw Marco was lying motionless on track. I was speechless and my eyes fill up with tear.
Just within seconds, Marco was gone. I wished it was in dream and it's not true.
RIP Marco, rest in peace. God be with you.

Marco Simoncelli was not only a rising star, yet his way through MotoGP world has strenghtend its colours and rised the audience's passion as well.Remembering at this point Shoya Tomizawa, it's hard to ignore that both passed the way in the very year of a promising ascent.Maybe a due tribute to Marco in the races to come, would be only fair judgements here for all these riding heroes, in which the hate and insults should find no way to enter. We owe him such !
RIP Marco dear !Forever young as most of heroes !
