Ride On.

It was a tragic end to an otherwise exciting Moto GP 2011 on Sunday, when Marco Simoncelli had a crash that took his life.

On 23 October 2011, Simoncelli was involved in an accident with Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi during the 2011 Malaysian GP at the Sepang International Circuit. In fourth position during lap two, Simoncelli's bike veered across the track and straight into the path of Edwards and Rossi. Edwards was injured with a dislocated shoulder, while Simoncelli lay still on the track after the crash, his helmet having come off during the incident. The race was immediately red-flagged. He was taken by ambulance to the circuit's medical centre, but at 16:56 local time it was announced that he had died from his injuries.

As a rider with a love for the sport, my thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family. It's just not fair when such a young, talented rider has his life taken. Rest in Peace Marco x
