Marquez Blog: Going for the sixth win in Valencia

Marquez Blog: Going for the sixth win in Valencia

I’ve only got one goal in mind: my sixth win of the year…

In his latest official blog for boxrepsol.com Marc looks ahead to the final round of the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship season in Valencia:

Hi, everybody! We’ll be seeing each other in no time in Cheste!

There’s only two days left. I have good memories of this circuit and I really like the route.

It’s one of the four Spanish Grand Prix in the World Championship and the last of the season. My fan club will be there, as they always are. They’ve always been by my side and I’m so grateful for all their support. I hope I put in a good race to finish the year!

Alex and I will drive down to Valencia, as you know we usually do. We’re really motivated and excited to start working closely with the team on Thursday.

I’ve only got one goal in mind: my sixth win of the year. It would be the fourth win in a row for the team, after our great performances in Japan, Australia and Malaysia.

I hope the weather gets better because the week hasn’t started off very well. If I’m not mistaken, it’ll be completely sold out, so it’ll be nice if the sun shines and makes it the perfect weekend to close the World Championship.

There’s something about this Grand Prix that I’m really excited about: the special panel with the names of 2000 fans of the team that we’ll have in the box for the whole weekend. Having you guys so close will help us give it our all at the GP! Thanks so much!

We’ll have a break on the Monday after the race, but on Tuesday and Wednesday we’ll be testing on the track. We’ll be in Valencia until Wednesday night. Time really flies when you’re having fun! It’ll be the 2016 pre-season in no time.

Question of the week:
How do you deal with the off time in winter? It’s three months and it feels like forever. March always seems a long way off. Also, what do you do to keep in shape and practice?
Question from Sofía

Hi Sofía,
We don’t actually get three months off in winter. To be honest, we practically never stop. I think in November we’ll be training in Valencia and Jerez. In December and January we don’t tour but I’ll be participating in the Barcelona Superprestigio and we’ll be spending every other week training, except for Christmas week. We alternate between motorcycling, cycling, and going to the gym. We have to keep in shape because right around the corner in February the preseason starts!

Best wishes,

Marc
