Marc Marquez

MotoGP

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.

    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.

  • Heir Apparent: Marc Marquez’s Rookie Tear Through MotoGP World Continues, Extends Lead for Crown

    Marc Marquez is the real deal. Sure, the humble Spanish phenom may be inclined to play down the fact that he holds a 16-point lead in the Championship standings as a MotoGP rookie. Or the fact the fact that he’s on the heels of three recent victories (the most recent coming at Laguna Seca in Northern California – where he became the first rookie to have ever triumphed at the track). He’s the youngest ever to tally back-to-back wins, by the way.

But he also noticeably omits the fact that his first-ever victory, coming at the inaugural Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin (Texas), was achieved by convincingly outgunning his childhood hero (and fellow Oakley superstar), Valentino Rossi, who’s finally found his form after a couple of tough years with Ducati.

    The Doctor is back. With the pains of a big victory drought with his former team in his rear-view mirror, Valentino Rossi masterfully dominated his way to a long-awaited triumph in the Netherlands this past weekend – topping fellow Oakley rider and new generation young gun, Marc Marquez. “I’m very happy and I can’t believe the victory after a lot of time,” Valentino said following his first win after moving on to Yamaha. "I worked very hard and never gave up.” It didn’t take long for Vale to take the reigns.
