    I saw the GP crash and it looked like a decapotation.....was it?
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    apparently not, it was his helmet bouncing away... He regained consciousness @ one stage in the medical room, but passed away not long after....

    Poor Colin Edwards, he looked like he did all that he could to avoid the accident but there was nothing else he could have done...

    Casey Stoner was shown with his wife, before it was officially announced, and you just knew it was bad news...

    Bugger, these guys often have big spills and walk away from it, the damage usually occurs when they hit something of get hit.

    RIP

    Edwards and Rossi both. Their immediate reactions were heartbreaking.

    Marco's death is such a loss to GP bike racing.
    such a determined, gutsy rider, not to mention whacky personality.
    I've been a fan of his since he put together a brilliant season,
    all elbows and knees, to win the 250 championship in 2008.
    this really hurts.

    Haven't been around here in a while but I do check in every now and then.


    I only have a handful of heroes from the last 30 odd years of motorsport.
    - Gilles Villeneuve
    - Jean Alesi
    - Valentino Rossi
    - Robert Kubica
    - Sebastian Vettel
    - Marco Simoncelli

    Not only are they massive talents, they are hugely passionate and their personalities totally captured me.
    That's what sets these 6 apart from the rest ... their human side - flair, passion, charisma and charm.
    I've only met 2 of my heroes; and 2 I will never meet.

    In this sport, you can follow a driver or rider's career, watch them as they develop into accomplished racers, share in their greatest performances and most ignominious moments, anticipate their future successes with relish, only for it all to end forever in a matter of seconds. I am totally crushed.


    A piece of motogp died yesterday.

    Thanks for the memories Super Sic, you'll be sorely missed. Arrivederci.
