BARCELONA, Jan. 26 (Royals Blue) –
The Spanish MotoGP rider Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda) will be in the official pre-season training in Sepang (Malaysia) and later in Mandalika (Indonesia) after improving from the episode of diplopia (double vision) that affected him in the final stretch of the past World Cup.
“It is confirmed that the Repsol Honda Team rider will start the 2022 preseason in the first official MotoGP tests to be held in Sepang and then in Mandalika, Indonesia, the week after,” the Repsol Honda Team confirmed.
Marc Márquez evolved well from his diplopia and after receiving authorization from his medical team he got back on a motorcycle months later. First on a motocross track and then with an RC213V-S in Portimao, to finally test a Honda CBR 600RR in Aragón.
Last Monday the 24th, the rider from Cervera underwent another medical check-up in which it was reconfirmed that the conservative treatment was “a complete success”, according to the team, and that the pilot is in “ideal conditions” to once again drive a MotoGP.
Thus, in Malaysia it will be the first time that the Catalan rider gets back on a MotoGP after his victory in the Emilio Romagna Grand Prix, ahead of his teammate Pol Espargaró, who was second.
