Tulisan Bautista untuk Sic, bener-bener bikin terenyuh

Membaca tulisan rider Suzuki Alvaro Bautista untuk Marco Simoncelli (RIP) bener-bener bikin terenyuh masbro. Bautista yang selalu menjadi rival abadi Sic mengenangnya dalam sebuah tulisan yang ga sadar sampe berkaca-kaca saya bacanya. Jadi teringat bagaimana dulu saya amat sangat menikmati nonton GP250 era Sic-Bautista-Pasini. Saya amat mengidolakan tokoh antagonis seperti Sic. Sic dengan tubuh besar seperti gladiator yang siap mengeksekusi lawan-lawannya. Gaya balap liar dan buas yang dimiliki Sic pun terbawa hingga ke MotoGP. Sayang pesona Valentino Rossi di kelas MotoGP begitu besar sehingga saya lupa akan keberadaan Sic setelah naik kelas, hingga akhirnya dia dengan sukses berhasil mematahkan tulang selangka Pedrosa. (Hell Yeah!):mrgreen: Tapi begitu baca tulisan Bautista kemarin, saya baru ingat kalau dulu ada rider yang aksi liarnya selalu saya tunggu. Berikut kutipannya dari GPOne.com:

“Dear Marco: I don’t know how to start, it’s hard to say something after a weekend like this one.”

“We both know that our sport is dangerous and that, luckily, the safety measures have been constantly improving.  But sometimes things happen that make people realize our sport is not a game, and that our lives are on the line. I don’t want to tell you about the atmosphere in the paddock as we waited for news about you, because I think we have all cried and suffered enough.  I think you died doing what you love, and what all of us riders love; racing a motorcycle.”

“I had the chance to be your rival in 250cc, where we had many battles.  You were always a very controversial rider on the track, always on the limit, but you were also always spectacular, and you gave people a reason to love our sport. You were a great rider, you always gave your best, and you always fought.  Even on your last lap, where we passed each other six times in just two corners.  I really enjoyed that, and I know that you did too, like you always did when we battled like that.”

“It will be weird to walk around the paddock without seeing you… but your memory will always be with us.  We can never forget you, and we will miss you a lot.  But I’m convinced that, wherever you are, you will be watching us.”

“I want you to know that in the next race, at Valencia, all the people who come to the circuit, and there will be many, will come for you. Because you will always be in our hearts.”

“A big hug, wherever you might be. RIP #58”.

Gimana masbro? Dalem banget kan? Sic yang mungkin begitu dibenci oleh pecinta Pedrosa, Sic yang dimusuhi oleh fans Lorenzo. Tapi bagi penggemar Italian riders, kehadiran Sic (khususnya di tahun ini) seperti part time entertainer yang menggantikan Rossi untuk sementara waktu. Ciao Sic!
