Marc Marquez just stunned the entire motorsports world, whether you liked it or not. The young Spanish sensation, with his signature smile, already has smashed into the history books with reckless abandon through his rookie MotoGP class campaign. From being the youngest ever MotoGP pole sitter and youngest winner ever at the 2013 Grand Prix of the Americas – topped with being crowned as the youngest-ever MotoGP World Champion, Marc is well on his way to claiming his place as one of the most elite riders in the sport’s storied history.
Raging onto the international scene with a pair of World Championship titles already under his belt (125cc in 2010 and Moto2 in 2011), there was no doubt that his move to premier class would disrupt the series standings. But coming onto the World stage and claiming the Championship not only proved his natural ability: It also started a new era in itself.
First hopping on a motorbike at the early age of four, Marc found himself as the runner up at the Motocross Catalan Championship at six. Switching gears to road racing in 2002, he’s never looked back – with three World Titles at a mere 20 years old.
