The color of the underwear during the GPs
Especially on race weekends the champion of Cervera he chooses his clothes very carefully, starting with the colours: “I wear blue underpants when I train on practice days, while during competitions I prefer red. If I start a season with an underpants model, it becomes untouchable. They must be the same on every day: the one for Friday, the one for Saturday and the same for Sunday’s race“.
The colors are not chosen at random: “The red represents me, while the blue reminds me of watching races on TV as a kid. When a rider improved his lap, it was said that he wore a blue helmet… Behaving like this has always brought me luck“.

What I didn’t expect were the injuries“, added Marc Marquez. “I thought very little about my personal life. My goals have always been professional… I’d like to have a family, but it’s not just up to me. I prefer to think about the present, I don’t know what will happen in the future“.
