Motivated Marquez arrives at Mugello on a high
The third of the four rounds of the Championship in this intense month of June will take place this weekend at the Mugello track. The Repsol riders arrive to Italian soil with the aim to repeat the podiums achieved at the Dutch Grand Prix.
The winner last Sunday in the intermediate class, Marc Márquez, arrives at Mugello in very good form, that allowed him to achieve two victories and a second position in the last four races, rising up to the second place of the Championship. The Repsol rider will also have the additional experience of the test he did two weeks ago at the Italian track, where he had two days of training in which he rode under the 2010 pole position time and was able to keep a good pace with his Moto2. For Emilio Alzamora’s pupil will be a very special round, as this is the setting where he achieved last year his first victory in the World Championship in a memorable season where he won the 125cc World title.
Marc Márquez: “We get to Mugello fully motivated after the victory we achieved in Assen, which was a morale boost for me and my team after the retirement in Silverstone. Two weeks ago we had a test here that will be very helpful this weekend.
It will be the first race really under the heat in Moto2, which is a class much more physically demanding than 125cc, but we are ready. It is a very technical circuit, but also a beautiful track and a lot of fun.
It is a very special round —I achieved my first victory here last year—, but we are not going to change the plan we have followed until now, race after race”.
