Márquez makes clear his intention to participate in the Sepang tests

The Spaniard, who completed a total of 65 laps on the Portuguese track on Sunday, riding the Honda RC213V-S, the commercial model of the prototype with which he competes in the MotoGP World Championship, missed the last two stops on the calendar last year , precisely in Portugal , and in Valencia, as a result of a fall he suffered while practicing motocross. In the accident he hit his head and the concussion caused him to reproduce the problems of diplopia (double vision) that already prevented him from finishing the 2011 season, in Moto2, also due to a fall, in this case in Malaysia.

Marc Márquez , who has spent the winter practically unemployed and with hardly any physical training, said last Friday that he had experienced a notable improvement, which led him to get on a motocross bike.

After that first test, the Honda rider stressed that he did not want to rush and that, always with the consent of Dr. Bernardo Sánchez Dalmau ‘s team, he was not going to ensure his presence in the first training sessions of 2022, before shooting on a circuit of the of Grand Prix.

On Sunday, the #93 drove a lot of kilometers, with a final run of 20 laps, practically the distance of a race, which leads us to think that it will be in a position to face some tests that are crucial for the brand with the golden wing. . Even more so if we take into account that the rider from Cervera (Lleida) already missed the tests that were held in Jerez, in November, very important for the development of the 2022 motorcycle.

This Monday at noon, Honda sent a video in which its spearhead verbalized the good feelings it got from the Algarve , and its desire to continue progressing in its set-up to reach the test to be held on February 5 and 6. in Sepang as prepared as possible.

 

“I feel very happy, first to get back on a bike on the track and also because we have been able to confirm the sensations I had doing motocross. It is a great feeling, partly a relief because when I have ridden I have not had any discomfort with the vision. Since I haven’t been on a motorcycle for a long time, I’ve noticed that I’m lacking a bit in some physical aspects, but this is because I haven’t been able to have a regular pre-season. There is room for improvement, but the positive and fundamental part of this test has been to reconfirm the feeling we had when we got on the motocross bike for the first time and enjoy the sensation of speed. I have completed an intense test day with long runs, so I am very happy with the result. There are two weeks left before the tests start in Sepang, so I will take the opportunity to intensify my physical preparation and train on the motorcycle”, explained Marc, making clear his intention to be in the vital tests on the 5th and 6th of and February.
