Marc Marquez: “There is still a long way to go but I feel good”

Marc Marquez found his way back to a MotoGP circuit, this Tuesday morning in Misano. Back on the handlebars of his Honda, the Spanish driver completed 39 laps to test his physical abilities, three months after yet another right arm operation performed on June 2 in the United States. “The road is still long but I feel goodhe said when he got off his motorcycle.

It wasn’t so bad, but I’ll try to take it a step further tomorrow (Wednesday). If I can do more laps, I will. »

“I couldn’t have completed an entire race today”

Regarding his return to competition, which he still hopes possible before the end of the season, the multiple world champion, aware of his current limits, was quite evasive: “I couldn’t have completed an entire race today, maybe ten laps, but no more. I’m still far from that. We’ll see after tomorrow’s session, how my body will feel after having endured so much effort, if I feel progress or regression. »
