I had a lot to tell you about today but quite frankly I just can’t think straight.

I am in total shock at the news that the amazing Marco Simoncelli lost his life today doing what he loved best to do.

All of us who are MotoGP fans know that these guys take huge risks but these sorts of accidents are so few and far between that we have become complacent.

Marco was amazing, not only was he a huge talent who had yet to show us his best but he was also a huge character. Valentino Rossi referred to him as his younger brother which alone speaks volumes.

This year my MCN fantasy league team featured Vale and Simone and despite their problems (crap bike and over enthusiasm respectively!!) they both stayed my dream team as I knew they would eventually deliver. Maybe not this season but in time….. now Simone will never do that but will always be remembered for the huge huge talent that he was. My thoughts go out firstly to his family and friends and then to Vale and Colin Edwards who through no fault of their own must be feeling utterly rubbish tonight. Stick with it guys. We can’t afford to lose you from the Moto GP world too.

 

Marco Simoncelli 20.01 1987 – 23.10.2011

R.I.P. and thanks for the amazing memories…….
