How MotoGP's record smasher is facing his toughest challenge

The 2020 MotoGP season was an utterly enthralling affair, but few would argue with you if thought it the world championship was a poorer place without its biggest star Marc Marquez. In an exclusive interview, he explains the challenges he's faced in his comeback from injury and what he makes of the current MotoGP landscape

In the latter stages of the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix - the opener to the COVID-delayed season - Marc Marquez crashed heavily and badly broke his right arm.

Following surgery on the Monday after the Spanish GP, he tried to come back a week later at the Andalusian GP but this proved to be a massive mistake as it weakened the metalwork inserted in his arm, which would break a few weeks later and necessitate a further surgery.
