Marc Marquez has taken yet another big step forward on his road to recovery following a fourth surgery in June. Having been given the all clear to begin training on motorcycles again, the Repsol Honda star has done just that, spotted riding again on Wednesday evening in MotorLand Aragon.
The eight-time World Champion was on Honda’s CBR600RR, a bike which he has used before when on previous comeback trails. It was an intense day of training, with the Cervera native fully focused on getting back to full fitness as he targets a MotoGP™ return sooner rather than later.
"Today I can't stop smiling. After a huge effort I'm back on the bike again. Thanks to all of you who are always pushing me! Let's keep it up!!," Marquez posted on his Instagram account after a successful day’s work.
Naturally, Marquez won’t compete at this weekend’s event in San Marino, but he should be present at post-GP Misano Test where he can cast a close eye on the development of the RC213V. It will be a key crucial couple days as the Japanese factory will look to take the next steps in developing a competitive bike for their all-star line up of Marquez and Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) in 2023.
