    Wow!

    You can see his lid pop off and his face scraping on the pavement!

    RIP!

    While watching the race this morning I was horrified - thinking (for a few seconds) that his head was still in his helmet...either way it was terrible.

    No helmet will protect you from being hit by a bike at 140mph.

    RIP Marco, a great rider and from what I could tell from interviews a great human being. Sad not to see him and in the pits again.

    UM.... his helmet probably cost more than your bike. And yea, no helmet is going to save your head if it gets run over at that speed.

    It's always a bad day when someone dies, but at least he did it doing the thing he loves.

    My condolences to his family.

    Very sad, but I can't help but wonder if because of the amount of hair he has if he had to wear a larger/oversized helmet and if that contributed to his helmet coming off. Although with the kind of impact that happened who knows if it contributed to his death. RIP Marco.

    I think I heard spies state it was around a 70mph corner which is still plenty fast for a head impact. And not that it would have helped the impact but I wonder if all that hair keeps his helmet from fitting around his skull properly and lead to it being able to pop off easier? Rip sic
