Big wreck disrupts the opening lap of the Valencia MotoGP… and everyone walks away

The race was preceded by a tribute to fellow MotoGP racer, Marco Simoncelli, who was recently killed at the Malaysian Grand Prix. All the racers participated in a parade lap and two minutes of applause in honor of Simoncelli.

These pictures are incredible. For those of us who ride, we know it’s particularly amazing that nobody was seriously injured. I wonder how much the Simoncelli tribute might have been on everyone’s mind as the racers entered the first turn. I’ve always thought that riding a motorcycle is a little like swimming. It’s difficult to do if you think about the mechanics of it and are worried about the danger.
