Surpassing his own dreams

I want to make it as far as possible. If I ever make it to a World Championship, well, that already seems like a stretch...

An advice

Trust your peers, your team, the people that stand beside you – they are the ones that will still be there when times get tough

Marc Márquez 2018

From ant to champion

In his first CEV races in 2005, he weighed so little that 21 kg had to be added to his bike so it reached the minimum required weight. In the 2008 World Championship, they had to add 16 kg to his 125cc. At the time, he was just a child, and had to steer a bike that weighed twice as much as he did. His team nicknamed him “the ant”, a tiny animal strong enough to lift 100 times its own weight.

At 17, he made it to his first World Championship in the 125cc category; at 19, the Moto2 World Championship, and when he was 20 he became the youngest rider to participate in a Top class World Championship. That was the same year he participated in MotoGP and managed to make it onto a whopping 16 podiums (6 of them wins), the largest number ever achieved by a rookie. He has 5 MotoGP World Championships under his belt, and is fighting to add a 6th.

His saves have been epic, and he’s managed to almost make our hearts stop more than once. The last time, in Sepang 2018, where he invented the "Double save".
