Marquez Blog: Two very busy weeks

I’m writing to you from Madrid as today I have the honour of receiving the award for Best Spanish Sportsman 2014 at the National Sports Awar

In his latest official blog for boxrepsol.com Marc discusses what he has been up to after the Valencia test:

Hi everyone,

I’m writing to you from Madrid as today I have the honour of receiving the award for Best Spanish Sportsman 2014 at the National Sports Awards for winning the world title last year. It really is a true honour to receive an award like this.

I flew to Madrid from Milan because yesterday I was there at the Motorcycle Exhibition with some of the other HRC riders, including Dani. It was really interesting to see what Honda brought to the exhibition this year. It’s an event I’d recommend to anyone passionate about motorbikes.

Unfortunately, the week ended very sadly. On Friday night I was having dinner with some friends in Cervera when we heard about what was going on in Paris.

Hearing about something like that really affects you; it’s a mixture of sadness and frustration. That is why I want to send all my energy and my support to the families of the victims.

Question of the week:
Do you like to read? Do you have a favourite book? Question sent by Michelle

Hi Michelle,

I like books about athletes, as they often have examples of personal growth and tend to be highly motivational and inspirational. One of the latest books I read that I really liked was the book by Kilian Jornet.

Best wishes,
Marc
