Marc Marquez is tearing through the MotoGP World, whether you like it or not. The young Spanish sensation already has smashed into the history books in his rookie MotoGP class campaign by being the youngest ever MotoGP pole sitter and youngest winner ever at the 2013 Grand Prix of the Americas.

Raging onto the international scene with a pair of World Championship titles already under his belt (125cc in 2010 and Moto2 in 2011), there’s no doubt that the youngster is already respected as one of the elite riders on the Planet.

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 two World Titles and a lead as a rookie in the MotoGP class at a mere 20 years old.
