125: Marquez soldiers on with injury

Marc Marquez refuses to let a dislocated shoulder hinder his 125GP title chances.
Marc Marquez is hopeful he can protect his 125cc World Championship lead despite discloating his shoulder for the second time this season.

The championship leader was stretching his advantage at the top of the standings following a run of five straight wins, but a fall during practice for the Czech Grand Prix left him with a damaged left shoulder

Coming three months after breaking his right collarbone in an accident at Jerez, although Marquez soldiered on to a brave seventh place at Brno, his lead has been reduced to 15 points by Pol Espargaro.

Nevertheless, Marquez says he will be ready for the next round at Indianapolis, even if he won�t be 100 per cent.

�Competing in the world championship is never easy and there are days in which things can go wrong. We cannot and should not relax at any moment until the final lap of the final race has been completed.

�At Brno I injured my shoulder, this time the left shoulder. On this occasion, we have had to just go ahead without any time for me to recuperate, which is different from when I went to France as I had three weeks of rehabilitation.

�The race was very hard but I want to thank Dr Costa and the Clinica Mobile because they did an excellent job through those three days for helping me start the race. Although I did not experience a lot of pain throughout the 19 laps, I did not have any strength in the arm in order to brake hard. In addition, I had a problem with the rear tyre, which was sliding from the beginning and it was destroyed at the end of the race.�

I'm amazed he even started the race in Brno! To be fair, the weather played into his hands nicely for the championship. I'm not sure he would have been able to do what he did on a dry track, the stresses on his shoulder would have been a lot higher. I'm sure he'll be back near the front at the next race, 100% fit or not.
