Marc Marquez Surgery NewsFollowing his record-breaking 2013 MotoGP Season, Marc Marquez underwent quick surgery to improve his breathing.
The 2013 MotoGP Champion, who became the youngest rookie to ever win a title, had the operation due to a “deviated septum that produced a respiratory obstruction preventing him breathing properly.”Marquez underwent surgery at the Universitari Quirón Dexeus Hospital in Spain. Doing the work on the 20-year-old Spaniard was Dr. Angel Chartre, Chief of the Internal Medicine of Hospital Universitari Quiron Dexeus and Dr. Miguel Conti, otorhinolaryngologist at the facility.Marquez will now rest for a week before returning to his normal schedule of events to prepare for the 2014 MotoGP Championship.The Repsol Honda RC213V pilot, who has titles across all three MotoGP classes, was fastest during the traditional post-season test at Valencia, and is expected to be fierce once again in 2014 MotoGP.To read about Marquez’s record-breaking season en route to the 2013 MotoGP title, click here.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
