I can just picture him bullying his RC212V up there in the clouds, tearing up the track just like he always did. Having a good laugh with the rest of the greats up there in the great yonder.

Beautifully written

RIP #58
Never forgotten

I still can't believe he's gone either. I wake up every morning thinking 'ooh, a new day!' Then: 'Oh. Part of it's missing.' And sigh as it doesn't feel real. I half wish Valencia would hurry up and half wish it wouldn't.

As a postscript to this story, the Italian Motorcycling Federation has now lodged a request with Dorna and the FIM that the number #58 be officially retired, so that it'll never again be seen on the front of a MotoGP bike in competition.

I'm sure it'll be granted.
