125: Marquez targets quick return in France

Marc Marquez targets a return to the 125cc World Championship in France
Marc Marquez is targeting a return to action in the French round of the 125cc World Championship at Le Mans, despite dislocating his shoulder in his fall at the Spanish GP.

Marquez – who took third in the season opener in Qatar – had started the Spanish race from pole before falling on the opening lap.

Having now had a follow up examination on his injury, Marquez has targeted a quick return to action although he admits that he will have to wait and see if he is able to ride.

“I just passed a new medical examination with Dr. Mir and I feel quite well,” he said. “It's been a long week and bored because I could not do anything. I've been home and I've been seeing friends, but I could not do any sport or train, and thus the days become monotonous.

“Now we must work to see if we in a position to race. Dr. Mir has told me that the evolution of the shoulder is good and I was lucky in the fall. Now I can start functional recovery, so if all goes well, I hope to get on the bike at the end of next week when we get to France, but it's still not certain.”

This kid is a great sportsman. Most riders in the same situation as Marquez would have blasted the team for allowing the exhaust to fall off of his bike and risk ruining the championship as well as his career. Not once have I seen him put any blame on his team...
