    Default R.I.P. Marco Simoncelli

    Nasty crash in today's GP race involving Edwards, Rossi and Simoncelli.

    Edwards suffered a separated shoulder but is fine.

    Simoncelli's helmet came off from the impact. Sad day for the GP community.

    Yes indeed, that is sad to hear. He had a bright although controversial future ahead of him.

    Very sad indeed! Very controversial rider, I've even said some pretty negative things over the last two years. But he was a shining light in the sport and a brother behind the bars. He will be missed. RIP Marco.

    Terri and I just got done watching the race (well a lap 1/2). We are both sadden by his death. Yes he was controversial in his racing, but that is what made him so much fun to watch.

    Rest in peace my friend.

    Unhappy

    First saw Chaz Davies tweet about Marco. Couldn't believe it. Saw the video and was really saddened. I know he was controversial lately but seemed to me that he raced all out every race. Such an unfortunate accident. My prayers are with his family, Edwards, Rossi and race fans everywhere. RIP Marco. He will be greatly missed.

    Horrible accident .... RIP Marco ......

    Strange how the front wheel hooked up while on side slide to carry bike and rider back on to the track.

    Je Ne Sais Quoi? All I want is a fast ride.

    Almost like he was trying to save it.
