2013 MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez Through the Years | GraphMarc Marquez #93 News

At 21-years old, Marc Marquez has more to gloat about than most others in motorcycle racing.

The Repsol Honda rider arrived in World Championship in 2008 – with Repsol support – and took that title two years later. He joined Moto2 in 2011, taking that title in 2012. And of course, he joined MotoGP in 2013, and became the youngest rider in history to earn a premier-class championship.

And Marquez is at it already in 2014; he led all three days of the first preseason testing, leading riders like Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo by over a tenth of a second.

Throughout the years, Marquez, who began riding motorcycles at four-years old, achieved many milestones throughout his career. Following is a breakdown of the most important milestones, courtesy of Repsol.
