“Now I am running and swimming, and working in the gym with elastics and very low weights,” Marquez said.

“Step-by-step from last week to this week, we have increased [the workload] a little bit.

“Soon I will feel ready to ride a bike at an acceptable level, in a safe way, with power and with my muscles working in a good way.

“I want to start riding because the best way to be at 100 percent is to ride a bike.

“We need to change something in the team, on the bike.

“We need to have something more to be competitive.

“We are a team. To fight for a championship, you need the bike and the team to work together.

“This is something important for the future.”
