    I'm just heartbroken by this. As a motorcycle roadracer I understand the risks we take but you hope that this never happens.

    What a great young man, and a huge talent. Ciao Marco.

    Wow, brutal crash, his helmet is rolling across the ground, and he was just sliding limp across the track.

    RIP

    It looks like he is already down when he comes across the circuit. Sad

    Wow, sad to see this happen.

    What happened before the three of them bumped into each other? Looks like the guy was out of it already before they all hit.

    looks to be that way to me too. Looks like something happened first before crashing into those other 2.

    yup, lost it on the apron, and was so far over, could not get the bike up to correct and then took the full force of the second bike right into his back.

    RIP

    And I hope the rider that hit him does not suffer too much mentally for being a helpless spectator in those events. I know I would be a basket case for a long time afterwards.

    Yikes, he probably didn't even feel it. Wonder if the helmet broke, it shouldn't come off that easily, should it?

    It looks like the bike hit the back of his neck. That would have ripped the helmet off.

    So sad to see this, I was really curious why there was no MotoGP on Sunday and they played the 125 race instead. Marco had great potential to become a champion one day. Its a big loss for the sport. Im an avid rider and follower of MotoGP and it really shows the danger of the sport. Tragic to see anything like this happen. RIP Marco, grid wont be the same without you.

    Rip Super Sic. He was very entertaining to watch and one hell of a guy off the track. Tough for Rossi too, they were very close. An unavoidable accident. Very Sad.

    Man, saw this a few days ago. Brrutal accident. We see him alive one second in an average scene, rider sliding on the ground, then the next second we see a brutal impact and he's gone. 1 metre one way or the other and he'd be alive, man. Tragic.
