Marc Marquez: Departure during off-road/MotoGP practice

Gresini Ducati MotoGP star Marc Marquez is on a trip back to his homeland with his brother Alex these days, accompanied by intense training on two wheels. Minor injuries included.

Marc Marquez (31) isn't giving up his free motorcycle weekend either. The Spaniard is currently spending some time in his immediate home area around Cervera ahead of next weekend's Barcelona Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya in Montmelo.

In preparation for the hectic weekend in Barcelona, ​​the brothers not only did bike racing sessions, but also did extensive training on various motorcycles. For example, Mark and his brother Alex (28) were already sitting motocross racers on the slope of El Bunker in Brunetti, northwest of their new home of Madrid, in the middle of this week.

Meanwhile, the brothers returned home to Cervera for the weekend. A flat track session at the nearby Cars Circuit facility, where there is an on-course pool connected to a restaurant to cool off, was on the menu for the eight-time world champion on this occasion.

In the Carrès, the Marquez brothers also had excellent company in the form of GP ace Diogo Moreira (20). The Brazilian is in his first Moto2 season with the Italtrans team. On the dirt track, the man from São Paulo impresses with his amazing driving style and extreme drifts. Moreira served as the pace setter for the Márquez brothers. During intense off-road activities, Marc Márquez fell to the ground very violently. The abrasions suffered by Gresini's driver on his left forearm should not normally affect him at Barcelona.

By the way: VR46 Academy students also trained again this week at Valentino Rossi's (45) famous farm in Tavullia. This time Rossi's half-brother Luca Marini (26) was not there, as he completed special test rides for the motorcycles with the Repsol Honda factory team at Mugello, which were also possible for him and all his brand teammates due to franchise regulations.
