Marc MarquezView Profile
We caught up with reigning MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez in Jerez.
Superlatives to describe the 21-year-old Catalonian are fast running out. It was only last season that the No.93 stepped into the boots of Casey Stoner at Repsol Honda yet it feels as if he’s been around the premier class for a lifetime.
The keepers of MotoGP’s record books are continually rewriting the annuls with every passing GP; the records of Freddie Spencer, Kenny Roberts, Valentino Rossi and, most lately in Argentina, that of legendary Giacomo Agostini have fallen to Marc’s explosive racing.
Since 2008, when he made his world championship debut in the 125cc, Marc has thrilled fans with attacking and measured displays, and in the process notching up in all classes 58 podiums, 35 wins and 40 poles out of 99 starts – and all of it wearing Alpinestars’ class leading apparel and boots.
