In the latest report broadcast by DAZN, ‘Marc Márquez: his great victory’, there could not be no Alex Marquez to witness the entrance into a tunnel from which there seemed to be no exit. Fortunately, the fourth operation carried out in the USA on June 2 last showed the light and his right arm is returning to a gradual normality. But Marc has never hidden his moments of discouragement.

The Jerez incident put him in front of an unprecedented obstacle: “He definitely crossed so many lines that he had to face four times“, said the Gresini Racing team rider. “It was the fall with which he grew the most, from which he learned the most, the one that will make him even stronger in the future“. The goal is to finally return to having fun riding the Honda and he is sure that he will soon return to victory and to contend for the MotoGP World Championship.

But a few months ago the champion from Cervera brought up the idea of ​​throwing in the towel and dedicating himself to other projects. “He had never openly told me about a retirement, but one day he mentioned it: ‘What will I do after the bikes, if I don’t recover, if I’m not at 100%…?’. I think Marc wants to continue to be linked to this world, helping young people as it has already done – said Alex Marquez -. But I told him ‘don’t be silly, four days and you’ll be back on the bike“.

Now that the worst seems to be behind us, Marc Marquez is training to return to being champion and conquer the ninth world title in his career. ” He is a born winner, he understands nothing but going to races to win. Now he’s not looking for the title, he’s trying to rediscover himself and go back to doing what he did before with the bike… He’s an exceptional rider, capable of doing wonderful things. If he finds peace of mind with himself, he will be very strong“.
