First World Championship
There is a specific moment in which stories become legends.
This one began with an unfortunate fall and the challenge of starting last. It continues with a comeback of one, two… up to 22 places.
And it ends, once again, at the top of the podium.
The road to MotoGP
On his road to victory, Márquez had to overcome many challenges.
After winning the 125cc, he landed in Moto2 and in only two seasons he became a two-time world champion.
A triumph that launched him to the top class and gave him the opportunity of going up against the world of motorcycling’s heavyweights.
Rookie of the year
Third World Championship
At only 20 years and 270 days old, Marc began rewriting the history of motorcycling.
That is the exact age of the rider on the day he became the youngest Champion in history of the top class and the first newcomer to achieve this since 1978.
Fourth World Title
“People remember how many titles — not races — you win”, said a young Marc Márquez. He had just won 10 consecutive races, beating a record that is beyond the reach of most.
For once, he was wrong. Nobody will ever forget the brilliant season in which he gave us 13 victories and triumphed in Motegi (Japan). That year, the land of the rising sun witnessed the birth of a new legend.

Fifth World Championship
At a very early age, Márquez became the youngest five-time champion in history and also the youngest to win three titles in the highest category.
A fifth World title that showed that when maturity, persistence, and talent combine, age does not matter.
Sixth World Championship
It was the last race of the year in Valencia, a World Championship that was almost in the bag for Márquez. Until suddenly, he lost control at Turn 1.
“No way am I letting go of this bike”, he thought, and used his elbow and knee to avoid falling, leaving us with a history-making save.
Seventh World Prize
Ten anti-clockwise turns to the left.
Nine consecutive victories. A nine-year reign on a tailor-made track.
A new goal reached for a rider that knows no limits, because he has never had any.
Eighth World Championship
The key is to always reach a little further. Never give up even if you think you won’t reach it.
Like being down on the asphalt, revving up, and then getting back up.
