What a fitting ceremony it was, great send off for a great man. His Family were absolute rocks.
The bikes and helmet were a nice touch and vale wheeling it out was special.
I don't know if i believe in a heaven or after place but this thought helps me deal with it.......
Barry and the rest of the fallen sat on the wall outside the pearly gates, Bazza smoking a fag as a lanky figure approaches out of the distant gloom. Bazza looks up, OH S#@t lads better get your race faces on, Marco's here!

It been 5 days now and I still get upset when I see a picture of him, I didn't think things like this would effect me as it has, it really puts things in perspective, I'm gutted by his death and touched by his families words. Rip supersic

Although my Twitter has a lot of people involved in bike racing, or just fans of racing, the amount of people tagging with #ciaoMarco is incredible and shows just how many people's lives Marco touched in his short but outstanding life.

The best tweet said "You raced with your heart and that's why our hearts raced with you." That one just finished me off...

I've got something in my eye. Honest.

Just watched the video of the funeral service and it was all i could do to shed tears again at work, i still can't believe he is gone. Vale supersic, you were a pleasure to watch and watching the next race will be difficult without seeing u lining up on the grid but i can imagine you being there in spirit. you are greatly missed.

@Scruff Thanks :-)

Things like this bring the fans together as one. Anyone seen that lovely picture a fan made of Marco riding off onto a blue cloud race track in the sky? I've got it on my FB page, its beautiful.
