Rafael Nadal, Pau Gasol, Mireia Belmonte, Carolina Marín, Thiago Alcántara, David Villa, Ansu Fati, Alberto Contador, Toni Bou, Álex Crivillé, Mick Doohan and new Repsol Honda teammate, Pol Espargaró, sent in their birthday messages to the Spanish star, combining them with words of support as he prepares a return to racing following injury. Many of those who participated have suffered injury setbacks themselves throughout their respective professional careers.
These much admired athletes are all fans of the Repsol Honda rider, knowing the effort and sacrifice that have gone into his eight World Championships in Grand Prix racing. Between them, they have won 434 titles and 17 Olympic medals.
Happy Birthday Marc! We are waiting for your return!
