2013 Grand Prix of Aragon MotoGP Video

For the sixth time in 14 rounds, the rookie Marc Marquez proved his status as a top MotoGP rider.

The 20-year-old’s latest win arrived at Aragon on his home soil in Spain. Marquez first earned his seventh pole of the season there, and followed it with a patient performance that allowed him to take the victory.

Marquez got off the line in third behind teammate Dani Pedrosa and the reigning MotoGP Champion, Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo. Marquez made quick work of Pedrosa, passing him on the second turn.

As Marquez chased down Lorenzo, he was passed by Pedrosa with 19 to go. But on the following lap, Pedrosa high-sided. He said Marquez clipped him, and his traction control cable was cut during the contact; he reported this led to the crash.

With Pedrosa out, Marquez was able to chase down Lorenzo, eventually catching him with 10 to go. Marquez pulled away, and eventually finished 1.356 seconds ahead of Lorenzo. Taking third was nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi aboard the other factory Yamaha YZR-M1.
