Sad day in Moto GP

With the untimely death of the young and talented Marco Simoncelli on lap two of the Malaysian GP.
Looking at the crash it looks like he lost the bike but instead of going into a low slide the tyres still had enough grip to keep the bike from tipping and instead of high siding or low siding, it flung the kid off to it's side and had the bike veer in sharply infield on the oncoming lines of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.
All this happens in less seconds than it takes to read two words from this sentence, so basically nothing could be done. Marco probably didn't have the time to even make a decision to get off the bars...but I don't feel he was that type of rider anyway, I reckon he took the bull by the horns and tried to keep in the race...24 years old and on lap two.
Very sad day for road racing.
