Today was the funeral of Marco Simoncelli, the young MotoGP star who took the world by storm this season.
Already a double world champion in lower classes, this season saw the 24 year old Italian rock the top professional class, with his spirited riding, flamboyant appearance, and general demeanour in the paddocks and on the tracks.
Debating whether the terrible accident which cost him his life was his fault, or if Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi could have done anything to avoid hitting him (in my opinion, they couldn't), serves no purpose. A young man who has brought pleasure to millions around the world, is now lost to us.
I've nothing more to say on the subject, I'm just going to let this superlative picture speak volumes
