New York Times on Marquez and his rise to the top

The New York Times has run a lengthy article on the race winning performance of World Champion Marc Marquez at Silverstone and the Spaniard’s rise to the top in MotoGP™.

Journalist John F. Burns charts the background of Marquez from his origins as a dirt bike rider as a child to his successes as the youngest ever premier class World Champion.

Burns also carries a quote from Marquez attributing his performance levels to the qualities of the rivals he has to beat on track such as Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. Marquez commented, “You are fast because of others. They make you go faster.”
