Marc Freakin' Marquez - ENJOY

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

He is an amazing rider.

I saw a clip of him a few years ago where he was almost off his bike and was able to get back on all while maintaining control.

It's been an absolute pleasure to watch him race the last few years. Whats amazing is the fastest riders in the world have no idea how he does it. One race left this year.

No idea how he does it? Isn't it obvious? Super powers (and magic). DUH!

A genius rider for sure, but I can't say I warm to the guy - maybe it's that Spanish mafia in the background that we all saw emerge after the Rossi tow me round 'incident' a few years back at Motegi.

It's strange how he has become the only rider to find the sweet spot with that Honda. Lorenzo hates the thing & Crutchlow blows hot & cold, maybe guilty of over-riding. Still, some of the old guard need to retire & let the young guns have a crack at Marquez, on full works machinery.

We should get a flavour of 2020 at the post race test sessions at Valencia, weather permitting.
