I would have loved to see Aoyama race on Sic his factory bike in Valencia. Not only would it be a nice tribute to Simoncelli, but also a deserved goodby from MotoGP for Hiro. Maybe it will still happen, because the wounds are fresh. Maybe a week later everybody is able to get themselfs up and still move to Spain. I really hope see.

Although of course I will fully respect their call to stay at home.

Valencia will just not be the same. The horrible loss of Marco, Hiro not racing, Colin not racing, Barbera may be out, even the Factory Yamahas may not be racing. Would imagine it will be a somber place. Only bright spots will be in the support classes.

A thoughtful sentiment from a respectful and fast kid (I think he never really showed us his best since moving up) for an enigmatic fallen hero. Not sure but didn't Aoyama have a brother die racing a couple years ago? If so this guy unfortunately knows precisely what hell Marco's family is in.

After reading all the comments and tributes to Super Sic and I got thinking what was the last post on here before the race regarding Simoncelli... And what was the last post?? Simoncelli having Sensor Problems...??? Sensors for what???? He had to swap bikes for a while... Did they fix the Sensors??? Did the sensors fail again??? It gets you thinking doesn't it??
