Catalunya MotoGP: Marquez fit and ready for home debut

“Okay we crashed, but we crashed while we were second.” - Marc Marquez.
By Stephen English

Marc Marquez was bounced around at the last round of the MotoGP World Championship in Italy, where the Spanish rookie lost control at over 200mph on the Friday as well as suffering several smaller tumbles.

The last of those came when he slid-out of second place in the race and the Repsol Honda rider will thus be looking to rebound from his first MotoGP DNF in front of his home fans at Catalunya this weekend.

When asked about how he was feeling two weeks after the bruising Mugello round, the reigning Moto2 champion said: "I am nearly 100% and I feel so good for the Montmelo GP. I have recovered well and now I am ready for it.

“Mugello was a tough weekend, especially on Friday afternoon. But you know we learned about everything and in the race we were up there - okay we crashed, but we crashed while we were second.

“We will see here. Mugello was one of the points that I marked at the beginning of the season as one of the most difficult circuits, here too. You need to have a lot of confidence with the bike to be fast so it will be interesting."

MotoGP currently has four Spanish based rounds but Marquez, who lives in Barcelona, made clear that this is his home grand prix.

"Jerez [the Spanish Grand Prix] was so special, but Montmelo is my home circuit and it is a circuit that I live near so it will be nice to be here in front of our fans and I hope that they will come on Sunday and push every rider and that we can show them a good race."
