Wonder Kid: MotoGP Rookie Marc Marquez Closes In On World Title with Massive Aragon Triumph
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.
Despite a less-than-ideal start, Marc still found a way to power his way to the front.
“I made an error as always at the start and that is something I have to improve on for the future races, but I only lost a second so I was able to be aggressive on the tyres and recover,” the humble Spaniard said. “It was a very tough race but in the end I’m delighted to get these very important points.”
Meanwhile, Oakley’s legend himself, Valentino Rossi, found himself on the podium to keep things interesting for the season’s runner up spot. Not without some resistance from Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl, however.
“It was a good race for me. I had to fight very hard at the end with Bradl and Bautista, but to be on the podium is always a good result.”
Keep your eye on Marc as he powers his way toward a super historic feat!
