A lap of Catalunya with Marc Marquez

Moto2 front-runner gives a corner-by-corner account of the Catalan circuit

It's hard not to be a fan of Marc Marquez. He's one of the modern standard of miniature riders, but rides with a rough aggression that is hidden by the glowing smile of a future star. His transition to Moto2 started off with a glitch, as a glimpse into a raw speed of Marquez ended up in a pile in the gravel trap at the first three rounds.

That all changed at Le Mans, when the young Spaniard displayed a mature race-tact, picking off rider after rider to take his debut win in the Moto2 series.

As the series moves on to Catalunya this weekend the reigning 125cc Champion analysed the circuit a track that, despite his young age, he has plenty of experience having competed there for the first time when he was only 10 years old.

The circuit has a varied character through it's flowing corners, with different angles, speed and undulations, al linked together by a long front-straight. Catalunya also marks the long haul of the season with three races taking place in four weekends.
