Repsol Honda has moved to formally deny reports Marc Marquez’s laborious recovery process is proving to be more complicated than first feared.

In a rare move, Repsol Honda felt compelled to issue an official statement denying reports - which began with a story in Mundo Deportivo - Marquez was to undergo a third operation on his injured arm because doctors are concerned it isn’t healing correctly.

“The Repsol Honda Team would like to confirm that Marc Marquez’s recovery is proceeding as planned. While it is a long and intense recovery, Marc and those [in] his team have no cause for concern.”

Six-time MotoGP World Champion Marquez hasn’t competed since the opening round back in July when a crash in the closing stages left him with a fractured arm. Though he attempted a return to action just a week later - and only a few days after surgery - Marquez withdrew before revealing he would need a second operation to fix a damaged plate that had been inserted.

Since then there has been no official word from either Marquez or Honda on whether he will compete again this year with a tentative return plan for Aragon coming-and-going. Now it seems Marquez is aiming for the final round in Portimao to test his ‘match fitness’ before heading into the off-season with designs on coming back stronger for 2021.

In the meantime, Marquez has remained active on social media to demonstrate his level of fitness is returning, in between enjoying the upturn in performance and results enjoyed by his brother Alex following his back-to-back podiums at Le Mans and Aragon.



Continuamos con la recuperación!! #rehabilitacion
