MotoGP | Marc Marquez returns for the GP of The Americas at COTA
Marc Marquez, Repsol Honda Team rider in MotoGP, will return for the GP of The Americas, which takes place this Sunday at the Circuit of the Americas, in Texas.
The eight-time World Champion has been cleared by doctors after recovering from diplopia, which arose after his fall in the Warm Up for the Indonesian GP on March 20.
The HRC star has completed his conservative treatment plan and is ready to return to action at Round 4. Before heading for the US, he confirmed his feelings and vision on a CBR600RR around the Alcarras circuit.
Marc Marquez: “Of course I am very happy to be back, it’s a great feeling to return and especially to do it at one of my favourite tracks. No matter the situation, I really enjoy riding in Texas and have incredible memories there. We have some work to do after missing two races and the whole Argentina weekend so I am not here to set one target at the moment. There’s many things to do and consider, but the important thing is that we are back on the bike this weekend.”
Marquez will have at his side Pol Espargaro, who is trying to recover from a bad result at the Argentine GP, when he crashed and did not score.
Pol Espargaro: “After the disappointment of last race I am looking forward to riding again this week. Austin was not the easiest circuit for us last year but with the new bike it’s interesting to come and compare what we did last year to this year. Already it looks like there will be many people in the mix for the championship this year so we need to get back to scoring points and putting together weekends like the start of the year. It’s time to get some more points on the board and start building something.”
Anyway, the GP of The Americas takes place this Sunday, April 10, at 1pm local time (GMT-5).
