He’s a legend. He’s Italian. And he’s got style for days. Yes, no matter how much closer ‘Father Time’ pulls Valentino Rossi toward the twilight of his simply legendary MotoGP career, one thing is certain: The Doctor has always and will always be a stylish competitor on whatever set of wheels he happens to be charging on. Exhibit O: The world famous Monza Rally Show. Year after year, the long-time Italian icon has gone head to head with some of the top RallyCar drivers on the planet at Monza (even though his forte has clearly been on two wheels, four wheel beasts come just as natural) – finishing in the Top Three several times (and topping the event last year), even against the likes of World Rally Champions like Sebastien Loeb.
Marc Marquez is living proof that smiles definitely kill. The young phenom’s beaming expressions were a mere layer above the natural killer instincts that just carried him to ultimate MotoGP glory, being crowned as the youngest-ever World Champion after a solid result (third) on his home turf at the season finale in Valencia (Spain). A much-anticipated battle for the Championship with rival and title contender (and fellow Spaniard) Jorge Lorenzo culminated what has been a truly magical, albeit dramatic rookie season. “I feel… I cannot explain what I feel,” said the 20-year-old prodigy, who has already smashed multiple records this season including youngest ever Premier Class race winner, youngest pole-sitter, first rookie Champion since 1978 and more. "It is a dream come true – maybe too early because I did not expect to fight for the championship this year.”
The kid is simply unbelievable. Riding a dream streak of ultra-convincing MotoGP premiere class triumphs in his rookie season, young Spanish phenom, Marc Marquez, is closing in on a World Title following his brilliant display at one of his ‘home tracks’ in Aragon. Coming into race day at the MotoGP of Spain with a hard-earned Pole Position ahead of fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo, Marc topped the long-time dominant rider yet again when it counted – passing him with 10 laps remaining in the race and on to victory. His masterful performance pushed him to 39 points ahead of Lorenzo in the Championship standings with but four events left on the calendar.
