MOTO GP driver Marco Simoncelli killed in a freak accident

Helmet took off from the impact of Edwards' bike. Rossi was there too, fellow compatriot of Simoncelli and a good friend of his aswell. Such a talent, such a personality has left us. R.I.P Mr. Crazy Hair

Just another unreal crash, really no words; woke up just to see the race and then something like this happens..

Hope Marco is in a better place right now...

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: MOTO GP driver Marco Simoncelli killed in a freak accident

Just heard about it on the radio. And to be honest I'm seriously happy that I couldn't watch the MotoGP race this weekend because I don't want to know how it happened.

Horrible news as MotoGP has lost one of its most talented riders. He will be deeply missed.

RIP

Re: MOTO GP driver Marco Simoncelli killed in a freak accident

So talented and his personality was fun too. Still feeling really numb and it's been a while since the news. Mentioned it with Dan Wheldon and same thing applies now, you never really are prepared for it when it happens even if you know it's a dangerous sport. Shocking all the same.

RIP.

Re: MOTO GP driver Marco Simoncelli killed in a freak accident

Paul Butler opened the press conference, saying: “The purpose of this press conference is to apprise you of the circumstances that resulted in the tragic death of Marco Simoncelli. You know who we all are, the Race Direction; Claude Danis who is the FIM representative, Javier Alonso the Dorna representative, Franco Uncini the riders’ representative, and I’m Paul Butler the IRTA representative and Race Director. Michele Macchiagodena is our Medical Director and he will explain to you the circumstances that resulted in this death.”

Michele Macchiagodena said: “I’m very sad to be here to report about the death of Marco Simoncelli, a friend. Because of the crash he had during the race, in which he was hit by other riders, he suffered a very serious trauma to the head, to the neck and the chest. When our medical staff got to him he was unconscious. In the ambulance because there was a cardiac arrest they started CPR (cardiac pulmonary resuscitation). Immediately in the Medical Centre, with the help also of the Doctor of our staff at the Clinica Mobile and local Doctors, he was intubated and it was possible to take off some blood from the thorax. The CPR was continued for 45 minutes because we tried to help him for as long as we thought it was possible. Unfortunately it was not possible to help him and at 16:56 (local time) we had to declare he was dead.”

Paul Butler responded to a question about Marco Simoncelli’s helmet coming off in the crash by saying: “I think if I may reply, that will be for another occasion. Quite clearly the consequences and circumstances surrounding the accident will be thoroughly investigated.”

Answering a question about the condition of Colin Edwards, who was involved in the incident, Michele Macchiagodena said: “He had a dislocation of the shoulder and with anaesthesia the shoulder now is in the correct position. He is fine.”

Paul Butler concluded the press conference by adding: “Our sympathies go to his family and we want to show every respect possible to Marco.”

Unspeakably sad.

Terrible tragedy.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
