@Catherine,

I agree completely. I lost two nieces both before they turned 18 and also separate incidents. Sunday brought all of those emotions back. Marco was a breath of fresh air in a time when we desperately need it, and I mean in life.. not on the track.

Live every day with no regrets and remember to tell the ones you love just how much they mean to you..

Thank you Marco

@ gog 1104. That comment did not take the cake. It took the whole bakery. Where was Silvio Berlosconi ?
Life goes on. Where was Dani ? Where was the Queen mother ? Get a grip !!!
@ HRC...WELL SAID !!! Sadly, Marco will no longer be a GP factor. Hammer and Tongs he was. Highly entertaining,threatening and controversial on track.
As sad a loss to GP as Tomizawa was last year.
Simmo lived fast and died young. His old man summed it up in Sepang...'ciao Marco'.
It will be a long time before I forget him,if ever.

I always felt that Marco was going to be the one to take the mantle once Rossi retired. I cant see anyone else out there that can bring the thrills back to Motogp once 46 hangs up his gloves. I honestly feel that we lost the future of Motogp on that Dark Sunday. If you haven't read the piece by Kevin Schwantz i suggest you read it. The loss of super Sic will be felt for years to come, unless another rider from a bygone time appears. Rest in peace super Sic, the loss has only just begun. #58

As is so often the case people never know how people truly feel about them until it is simply too late. Marco will be missed, by his friends and rivals alike! The world is a darker place without him in it.

Godspeed SuperSic.

@corin

Sir you are a prat.......it seems that everyone in the GP paddock should have attended according to you. Prehaps Pedrosa, Stoner and Haydon were to grieve stricken to attend.......people grieve in very differnt ways, there is no set rule.

Most riders do not go to funerals because it makes their job alot more harder to handle.

I watched it online earlier and it was lovely to see so many people turn out for him. It was a wonderful send off for a wonderful rider.

Ciao Super Sic xXx

Some times racing sucks and this is that time.Still can't believe it,he should be getting ready to race in the last GP of the season,not traveling to his final resting place at only 24.Very very sad couple of days.
