    Italian motorcycle rider Marco Simoncelli has died after a crash in the Malaysian MotoGP.
    The 24-year-old's helmet was knocked off when he fell and was hit by Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi as he slid across the track on his Honda.

    The season's penultimate race was abandoned immediately after the collision just four minutes into the event, as Simoncelli lay motionless on the track.

    Yamaha's Edwards also came off his bike but escaped serious injury, while Rossi was able to nurse his Ducati back to the pits.

    Simoncelli lay stricken on the track before being taken to the circuit's medical centre where he was pronounced dead.

    Casey Stoner, who won his second MotoGP title at his home Australian Grand Prix last week, said: "As soon as I saw the footage it just makes you sick inside.

    "Whenever the helmet comes off that's not a good sign."

    Absolutely sickening to watch. I was watching it alongside the Rugby World Cup final and as soon as I saw it I knew he'd had it.

    RIP

    yeah i am sure the helmets are more secure now then they ever were.. but when you get hit by a fast going bike, then even those modern helmets can't help you much... sad but true..

    the helmet looked intact bouncing off the track,im guessing the weight of a bike rolling over it the strap might have given way,dont know mate tbh,i wear one everyday and dont like it to tight,eventhough theyre meant to be as tight as you can stand

    could it also have something to do with his "afro" hair.. that hair has to go somewhere, and maybe he had a lil bigger helmet cause of the hair.. but in a situation like a crash that can be pretty bad.. cause a crash does not care about what hair and size of your helmet is.. you either have the perfect size or you are in big trouble..

    could be right mate,id say if his head is down adn the wheel catches the helmet under his chin the force would rip it clean off as well,cant really see from the vid,and tbh as a rider of a biker daily i dont want to watch it again
