RIP Andrea Antonelli

Andrea Antonelli, an Italian Superbike Rider died yesterday after falling and was struck by another rider or racers.
Shockingly, I saw him falling over on TV...and yet I didnt know he had died.

I am very sorry and my thought's with the family of Andrea Antonelli. I am sorry shortly before you died I said you have a girl's name. I am very sorry and I know I'm being horrible.

And here I am, saying I am a great motor racing fan, I only paused before the race and see his name, and then paused in front of the TV when he fell, but I didnt even know he died afterwards.
Again, I am sorry.

Following would be the news clip for the horrible event occured on Sunday.
