His nickname was "Sic", yes he was also a bit "sick" 'cause he was mad :)
In the accident he fell and was hit on the only delicate part of a motorcycle racer - the neck - by the American Colin Edwards who couldn't do anything to avoid him and got injured too. Marco lost the helmet, that's really strange. We thought, just to smile a bit, that is was because of his hair.
The other day the AC Milan legend Gattuso, who is having a serious problem with his eye and maybe can't play football anymore, explained his problem and had an AC shirt with the name of Simoncelli on it.
Photo above: AC just a few minutes after the news of the accident last Sunday. Ironically, as Marco was an AC fan, they had the only match at that hour (and won 3-4 though they were losing 3-0, it never happened something like this to AC).
The event "Eicma international exhibition" will be dedicated to him.
