Terrible/Horrible tragedy. Read about it this morning when I first checked my e-mail. It is a sad day in motorcycle racing today. RIP Marco Simoncelli.

Interesting you say that, I though CE went over the chest and Rossi over the neck and head, but look at this picture of CE's bike after the race.
Notice the brake rotors are missing from the bike.


Here is more photo's and a follow cam video of how he lost control on a Greek site

I imagine the wheel was damaged and they swapped it to roll the bike around.

I don't know, but having 900lb coming at you at 150mph is really sad and unfortunate. Helmet or not helmet I think the outcome would have been the same. Big loss in motor-racing today ...... RIP
