“I don’t know when I’ll be ready”

Present during a video for the presentation of his Repsol Honda team, Marc Marquez, who had fractured the right humerus last July, said he did not know when he will be ready to return to competition.

When will we see Marc Marquez riding a motorcycle again, in the premier MotoGP category? Obviously, even the principal concerned does not seem to have the answer to this question. As a reminder, the Spaniard is currently still recovering, following his fractured right humerus during the Jerez Grand Prix, which was contested on July 19. An injury that was then followed by relapses, especially during his attempt to return to competition the following weekend, and which had also forced him to a near-white season, with in particular several surgeries undergone, i.e. three in total, before the start of re-athletic training.

This Monday noon, the pilot was present in a recorded video, during the presentation of his current team, namely Repsol Honda, and the launch of the RC213V 2021. On this occasion, the champion took the opportunity to give his news , confident that he was not yet ready to return to business.

In comments shared by L’Equipe, he notably declared: “We have to go step by step. I’m getting better and better. Most importantly, my recovery is on track. From now on, every time I go to the doctor I have good news, which was not the case at all last year. But now I just want to try and listen to my body. I don’t know, and neither do the doctors, when I’m ready. But the most important thing is that I feel better from week to week. I’m optimistic to be on a motorcycle as soon as possible but don’t know the exact day yet. “

Still, the six-time MotoGP world champion, who has been relatively discreet in recent months, will not be present during the start of the season tests, which will take place on the Qatar side.
