About that, I was watching the race and got up to get something from my room. I get back, and I was like "what the hell is going on, what is this crap, why did they stop the race?!" then I saw a replay of the accident and was silent until they announced the inevitable. Sad times.

Coriano prepares for an exhibition on the life of Simoncelli
Tuesday, 4 December 2012
On Saturday the 8th of December the exhibition "History of Sic" will open in Coriano, arranged in three themed rooms in the Palace of Culture of the late rider’s hometown.
Coriano is preparing itself for a “Sic” style party next Saturday with a distinct scent of gasoline. Many fans are expected at the opening of the “History of Sic” exhibition, which is a look back over Marco Simoncelli’s life beyond the photos many now know well. Unique pieces such as his first ever race suit, a pit box of the San Carlo Honda Gresini Team and a paining dedicated to Sic by Rimini artist Davide Salvadei will be on display.

The idea is to bring together the world of two-wheel sport and culture in the town’s Palace of Culture, with such displays as those from MotoGP™ photographer Gigi Soldano, whose works can be seen in the corridors of the main entrance to the exhibition.

I remember I was in the Philippines for a vacation. I came home early to catch the MotoGP race but my cousin wanted to play xbox so I didn't watch the race. During one of the cutscenes I just happened to glance at my twitter app on my phone and Jules tweeted "1987-2011" and I was like "please no...."...was sad that night and the next day. Quite crazy that I didn't know this guy personally but felt like now there was a void.

I hope it's a permanent exhibition, and will still there in September. I'm going to Coriano.
