Marc Marquez

MARC MARQUEZ – Five-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez is stamping his mark on premier class racing, with his distinctive elbow down riding style and ability to control slides redefining long-established racing techniques. His ability to lean a bike further, and longer, has seen him push the limits of bike control, exploring the absolute limit of grip in an insatiable quest for speed. One Goal. One Vision. To win.

A winner in every class he has competed in, Marc’s latest premier crown came after a dramatic victory at Twin Ring Motegi, when he became the 2018 MotoGP World Champion with three races to go.

With his eighth win of 2018 and the 69th in his career (across all classes), Marc becomes the youngest rider of all time to reach the milestone of seven World Championships (125cc in 2010, Moto2 in 2012 and MotoGP in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
