According to Tom Jojic, Paolo Simoncelli has asked for there to be one minute of noise instead of silence, with all MotoGP, Moto2, 125 bikes roaring at the same time. Would be a nice touch I think.

Aoyama is reportedly riding his own bike again and not Sic's factory machine.

I am so glad that Fausto has confirmed this. A big thank you for this tribute to Marco to him and his team. And somehow I think there will be quite a lot more people joining of Hiroshi Aoyama, Michele Pirro and Yuki Takahashi with 'Super Sic' present in their hearts.

RIP big fella. As I have said previously, you will be missed for a long, long time.

No surprises here. I found it hard to believe that some posters were calling for Valencia to be called off,a rider boycott etc. Of course it would never happen.
Post the Sepang tragedy anyone would have expected the Gresini team to play the Valencia round the way they did in the media.
They were always going to race in Valencia.
Afterall,they are a racing team and Simmo would have been the first to say the Show goes On.
By the same token,I doubt that Hiro will get to ride the factory bike. No point.
