Marc MarquezMakes Statement

Amazed he avoided crash

20 Aug, 2016

Marquez says he is amazed he was able to retain control of his bike when he nearly crashed in Free Practice.

When I lost the front, the first moment I thought, ‘this is a crash’. I was lucky because I could a stand [up] the bike a little bit, but the front was still closing. When I was there, I was with the knee pushing on the floor, and in the end I was able to save it. Sometimes I say you must be lucky to save that, but already many times [I’ve done this]… so something is there. How I do it I don’t know. But I hope to not repeat it in the race.
