I was watching it on BT Sports and they had Ben Spies commentating. This is the first time I've heard been speak and I'm amazed at how good he was at. BT Sports, if you are reading this then hire Ben ASAP. I can't decide what was better this session, seeing Marquez obliterate the field or hearing Ben's commentary.
