MotoGP’s wonderboy Marc
Marquez heads to Indy looking
for win No. 10…out of 10 races
Chances are Marc Marquez will lose a
race in the 2014 MotoGP season. It’s just
that, as we went to press, he hasn’t
managed it yet. That means he will arrive
in America for the Red Bull Indianapolis GP
looking for his 10th straight victory.
Marquez, who last year matched Kenny
Roberts’ 1978 feat of becoming World

in his path. The Honda rider began the year
nursing a broken leg, yet took pole and
won the first race after a long, hard battle
with veteran Valentino Rossi’s Yamaha.
In Round 5, at Le Mans, Marquez fell to
10th on the first lap, yet came through to
win. And at Germany’s Sachsenring he
started from the pitlane but led by Lap 6!

has countless records to his name already
– how could he not, after 15 wins and a
championship in his first one-and-a-half
seasons in the top flight? – says he’s not
paying attention to the stack of stats.
“More important than records, my
objective is to win the World Championship
again,” he said. “I just do my best to win
every race. It is almost impossible, but I
am calm and I have confidence in myself.”
It’s worth taking a trip to IMS just to
watch a racing phenom unintentionally
make more history. Odds are, he will.
