Alex Marquez: “The power of a MotoGP™ bike is incredible”

Alex Marquez has, technically, ridden a MotoGP™ bike before – as a reward for winning the 2014 Moto3™ World Championship, the rider from Cervera took one of big brother Marc Marquez’s bikes for a spin around the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. But the private test in Jerez, shared with many of the WorldSBK grid, gave the Spaniard the chance to turn his first laps in anger as he steps into his EG 0,0 Marc VDS team’s MotoGP™ outfit in place of the injured Tom Lüthi. After his first 30 laps on Wednesday afternoon, with many more to come on Thursday, the EG 0,0 Marc VDS rider said the biggest difference between the intermediate and premier classes was the obvious one – the sheer power.
