Marc Marquez

Motor Sports

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.

    For Ryan Villopoto, the key was to move forward after Anaheim II as fast as possible. The three-time defending King of Supercross threw himself back on target in his mission to defend his Championship with a commanding victory in Oakland this past weekend. Despite a late, ferocious charge from fellow Oakley star James “Bubba” Stewart, RV exerted his dominance and closed out the race to grab back the points lead in the Championship standings. “It feels good to be up here tonight,” he said following the win. “We have put in a lot of work at the test track, and I have a great team behind me and a great bike under me.

His storied career – lined with a tantalizing Formula One World Championship driving for Scuderia Ferrari and binders full of quotable and imitation-worthy scenarios highlighting his edgy personality – has captured the imagination of racing fans worldwide. But following a quick drop out of F1 for some quick stints in RallyCar (and even a short lived experiment in racing Camping Trucks in NASCAR), he returned to the big stage under the Lotus factory badge. Although his much-heralded return came with a win at Abu Dhabi in 2012, it became clear that he simply wasn’t on a team with a realistic shot at Championship contention. Then an old friend came knocking.
