Marc Marquez is on a tear through the MotoGP world. The young Spanish sensation has already stamped his name in the history books in his rookie MotoGP premier class campaign, becoming the youngest ever MotoGP pole sitter, youngest winner of the Grand Prix of the Americas and the youngest ever world champion.

Arriving onto the international scene with a pair of World Championship titles under his belt (125cc in 2010 and Moto2 in 2011), Marquez was an established presence before his blistering rookie and sophomore campaigns had even begun.

First hopping on a motorbike at the early age of four, Marquez found himself as the runner up at the Motocross Catalan Championship at six. Since switching gears to road racing in 2002, he’s never looked back – and history continues to be re-written wherever he goes.
