Marc Marquez – Through the Years

Marc Marquez 100th GP Start

The current MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez’s official Grand Prix career began on April 13, 2008, when he competed in his first-ever race at 15-years old – the 125cc Portuguese GP.

Marquez had missed the previous-two opening rounds due to injury, but took his first podium a few races later at the British GP. But he would not garner his first win until 2010 when he won the Italian GP.

This led to him winning the 125cc Championship that year,  and the 2012 Moto2 Championship and last year’s MotoGP Championship.

Since taking that Italian GP win in 2010, Marquez has triumphed at more than half of the races that he has entered (35 from 67) and seen his name mentioned alongside those of legends such as Giacomo Agostini, Mick Doohan, Valentino Rossi and Freddie Spencer.

When Marquez won the 2013 MotoGP title, he became the youngest rider at 20-years old to win a premier-class title.

And so far in 2014 MotoGP, Marquez has won the opening three rounds at Qatar, Circuit of the Americas and Termas de Rio Hondo. This Sunday at Jerez, Marquez will start the 100th race of his GP career – a century of racing, if you will.
